So I never got any blistered 20+ years ago or ever. I had what I thought was an ingrown hair, but different. Hung around for 2 weeks and did nothing but disappear. By the time I could get into gyno, it was too late for culture. So he did blood work and said I had herpes. Didn't tell me which one. I thought it had to be something because it showed up the morning after being with my fiancee. Cheating bastard! Anyway, last week went in for a complete STD clearance. All negative but she did not check for HSV. Blood works shows positive even if you had chicken pox, per her. Wth, do I even have it!! I'm reading about people getting bloodwork. So which one do I try to get my PCP to order?
I have had hsv 1 and 2 for almost 20 yrs. but just recently started getting outbreaks in my nose and one of my eyes. I'm not sure if maybe I touched my mouth and then my eye or if it just got in there on its own?
