I was diagnosed positive many years ago with what I believe was a Tzanck test.

Years after that, a gynecologist visually inspected what I believed was an outbreak and said that she did not believe it was one because there were "no ulcerations."

She gave me the HSV 1 and 2 IGG tests and they were positive for HSV 1 and negative for HSV 2. Also I was given the HSV IgM test which came out negative.

I am confused. How do I really know if I have genital herpes or not? I have never had any sores in the genital area, just occasional redness. Can it be herpes if there are no sores or blisters and it's just red?

On the other hand I have definitely had cold sores on the mouth when I was a child.

Does anyone have any advice? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
