there are blood tests for herpes IgG and IgM antibodies which can tell for sure if you were having an herpes outbreak or not

the acyclovir helped and so most likely a viral infection.

you should get a nose culture to also check for MRSA infection in your nose as well

it doesnt sound like you have had blood tests for IgG and IgM for herpes yet.
