Does HSV2 always show up on medical records.

When I go to the dermatologist. Will she know?

Not unless you tell them if you don't give this new doctor permission to get the old records. If for some ODD reason they actually do proper testing for herpes, then yes it will show up. I have had new doctors who didn't know until they tested or got my permissions to get my old records, I have 22 actual doctors of all types some specialist and all different specialties. Why would you not want this doctor to know your full health status? Just asking ;)

Oh and just by visual inspection, I do not believe she will know if your visit is not for a herpes related issue, she doesn't need to know. :)

I haven't had a reason to see my dermatologist since 2009 so when I made an appointment they said I needed to fill out new patient forums again. The appointment is herpes unrelated. I have already been diagnosed with HSV2 swab test though so I assume now it will show up?

Ohhh I thought any doctor had access to all my medical history. I have to fill out a Patient Registration Form and Dermatology Medical History Form.

I thought the medical history form gave them access to all of my history.

Nope it doesnt in my State, only what you allow them to have from primary care to Oncologist to Neurologist, different doctors have different info about you

      Thank you Slkxx. I want to talk to someone I trust but I am so afraid if I tell my best friend she will tell her husband, which is understandable. I completely trust her to not judge me but if her husband finds out his best friend is an ex of mine and I just don't want this to get around our group of friends. I have been lucky in the fact that the guy who gave it to me has been there for me but it isn't the same. Confiding in him is just making his own struggle more difficult as he feels terrible for what happened but he did not have any bad intentions. As it turns out finding out led to answering a lot of questions he has had about other health issues he had. So in a weird way this happening may actually help him in the long run with giving him an avenue for treatment. I don't want to pile onto his issues even though he has caused mine because at the end of the day he is a good guy who had no idea what was happening. I'm so glad you were able to talk to your friend and I truly hope the suicidal thoughts become a thing of your past. I am here if you need another ear.

      Various reasons are possible, including: genetics, immune system, triggers (e.g. stress), lack of nutrition/exercise, bad luck, etc. No one person has the exact same experience.  Have you tried antivirals?
