Customer Question
I have had gential...

I have had gential lesions for over three years. Had a recent IgG for HSV 2 that showed a value of .11

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Does though the test says negative my doctor thinks I'm positive because my most recent outbreak was a few weeks ago.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No fever sometimes I get a skin rash (they thought it was poison oak but it's not) and I get canker sores every once in a while

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

Skin issue occurs once a year on my arms and neck and I take a steroid to treat it

The blood test isn't very accurate for testing for active or even dormant HSV2.

I wasn't quite clear on what you wrote. I believe you said that your last genital outbreak was 3 years ago. But you also had a recent outbreak 2 weeks ago.

Please let me know what your question is and I'm happy to help you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
