This is all quite confusing, but more information is required.

Was there a recent outbreak being your first? Sexual activity?

There is only two tests to focus on, the IgG and supplementary.

HSV Type 1-Specific Ab, IgG was high positive which im aware of but my HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec came back 1.07 and there was a HSV-2 IgG Supplemental Test that came back abnormal postive and the ref range was negative.... went to my primary doc and he gave me a igg test which showed hsv2 as nonreactive... went back two weeks later and got an igm test and it was <1.10... doc mention it looks like a fungal in gential area... but i just want to make sure i dont got hsv2

Did you have lesions? Or just wanted an STD check (very responsible)?

Your HSV-1 result would seem to confirm a childhood oral cold sore infection.

In addition, HSV-1 can explain the elevated results of HSV-2. You do not have evidence of a HSV-2 infection.

The best approach here is to repeat Herpeselect IgG testing 16 weeks after the (last) sexual episode of concern and let that be the final word.

Ref required but I believe:

IgG can give false negs.
Western Blot is more reliable as follow up test.

Swabs can give false negs.
Biopsy is far more reliable.

It can be spread to other parts of the body via physical contact with a SHEDDING SITE usually with some FRICTION, towels, personal items.

Having a strain of say HSV 1 or 2 doesn't mean you cannot catch a second strain. Some strains are nastier than others!!!

Symptoms can be a-typical. Cuts that appear from no where, pealing skin, chaffing, rashes, irritation, tingling or throbbing. Or little blisters that do not pop. Other symptoms I guess poss this are the ones I know about. 

It is heresay that it can last on a surface 8 hours, LONGER ON A TOWEL OR WET CLOTHS.

If you do not follow up with your GP you can go undiagnosed assuming a neg test is all clear, they will not always follow up.

Any symptoms on your body/skin needs to be identified as something. IF IT IS NOT ID'D AS SOMETHING IT IS SOMETHING AND THAT SOMETHING COULD BE HERPES.

I'LL BE REPOSTING THIS WITH REFERENCES.

I'd go through the process of elimination with bloods...then try topical treatment to see what clears it up if swabs are not poss and biopsy last resort as they need skin.

OR

try topical treatment to see what clears it up...then the process of elimination with bloods..and biopsy last resort as they need skin.


This is my personal advise.

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?
    • WilsoInAus
      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
