I started feeling tingling and discomfort. I googled like crazy and then sure enough, the next day I woke up to a small sore.
I went to the doctor as soon as I could get an appointment which was two days later. She checked the spot I had a sore and said it looked more like I cut myself shaving and I was experiencing discomfort because I have an infection probably from the razor.
She took a culture and then drew blood. Three days later, my blood work came back negative for being ever exposed to herpes or signs of having a current outbreak. I thought thank god.
Then, my culture came back and it was positive for HSV2.
My doctor didn’t really explain in terms I can explain why my bloodwork came back negative but I do in fact have herpes.
Can an someone please explain? Thank you in advance.
