I don't know which doctor to believe.

Recommended Posts

After going to the doctor for a small spot on my inner thigh, my world has been turned upside down. I went the ER, and the doctor told me to see my dermatologist. I saw my dermatologist, and he said that it was a misplaced HSV1 sore, andt that he didn't think it was HSV2 as it wasn't near my vagina.. I went to my small town NP to get a blood test, and she was convinced it is HSV2 even before the results came back. Who do I believe? I've never had a spot on my actual genitalia, just on my leg. Yet my HSV2 only test (I asked for the one to show which I had, but they didn't order that one) came back with high levels of antibodies present. I mean I was mid OB, so of course they should be high. I don't know what to think. My boyfriend is being incredibly supportive about it, and is working on getting his own blood test done. However, we use condoms, so I don't know if a negative result for him means anything for me. Advice? Words of encouragement? I'm really scared and angry.
