Did they say that you had HSV 1, herpes or what is called shingles?
No. I have a family history but it went across my midline which I read that it should be one one side or the other.
I saw a nurse. They did not know. I went to a lab place and got blood work done. It showed HSV 1. I don't think they tested for Shingles.
A few more questions. One is can the herpes reappear somewhere else if it were Herpes - more specifically, can HSV 1 on your stomach or mouth reappear on your genitals? i was tested previously (less than two months previously) and had no problems. This was an IGG test. Could I now have both types (HSV 1 and HSV 2)? Also can you get Shingles "midline"?
It is pretty much gone but i have some pain along the front of my beltline all the way across my front. I am more concerned about spreading it to a girlfriend. I just don't want to hurt anyone frankly if i have a problem. Not sure what to do.
