I have possibly been exposed to herpes. I haven't had any outbreaks other than something that looks like razor burn. I have had both the blood test and the swab test done and both confirmed negative findings. I continue to have vaginal and anal burning. The doctor told me this was due to interstitial cystitis. Does anyone out there have these kinds of symptoms that has the herpes virus or could it be the interstitial cystytis? I'm scared and am in pain continually. The burning is not only during urination but all the time...day/night.
