so im very confused i got genital herpes in January never been checked but i knew i had it ,,outbreak was horrific and iv had an outbreak since always on my buttock near the anus.. i got these results today but im so confused at to what it means can someone help me please 

You have tested positive for: 
- Herpes Simplex I antibodies 

You have tested negative for: 
- Herpes Simplex II antibodies 

This result only demonstrates that you have the antibodies for Herpes Simplex I. This is a very common result and does not indicate that you require treatment - it only demonstrates that you have come into contact with the virus at some point.

Back in January, prior to your outbreak, did someone perform oral sex on you?  If they did, and based on your test results, it suggests that you may have genital HSV1.  

You should have your current butt outbreak swabbed/tested to identify if it is HSV1 or 2.

I'm guessing that your test was an IGG, best to verify.    

What was your initial outbreak like that makes you believe it was herpes?  'how many have you had since?

HSV1 is most commonly associated with oral herpes, but seems like many can acquire it through oral if they were never exposed to HSV1 earlier in life.  Do you ever remember having cold sores?  That would indicate the test results if you did.  

I think the only way to be certain is to have the next outbreak swab tested to rule out, or confirm.

It sounds to me like you have a genital HSV 1 infection which generally you get very minimal reoccurrence is about breaks but if you do I suggest you go and get the blister swabbed to be doubly sure.  

When they do a blood test and it comes up positive it means that you have had it for longer than 3 months So think about when you last had oral sex and your first outbreak

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
