Hi,

I started having irritation, bumps, itching, etc. in my genital area over a year ago. A culture came back negative for genital herpes and Igg tests came back positive for both oral and genital herpes although low, 1.7 and 1.3 respectively. After trying the usual antivirals for a couple of months with no results, I went back to my OB/GYN and got tested again, plus for every other STD and yeast and bacterial infections. Everything came back negative and this time the results dropped to 0.9 but I'm still having the same problems. This has been going on for over a year now and I don't know where to turn. Is it possible for the blood tests you recommend to come back negative, but to still have genital herpes?

As I mentioned in your previous post, you had low positive hsv2 igg results that needed confirmed with further testing. At this point , I recommend you stop all herpes antivirals if you are still on any. If you get new symptoms, be seen within 48 hours of them for further evaluation. Unless they get a + lesion culture for herpes off of one of these, it's not likely you really do have genital herpes going on.

best of luck finding out what is going on so that you can treat it properly and get relief!
