1) So the symptoms Ive been having have kinda been ongoing for the past 3 weeks, with new little bumps showing up at various times. Like at first it was a couple on my thigh, then a few on my pubic area the next week, then 3 bumps on my shaft next, then a few more this past week on my butt and pubic areas again.
If this were an GHSV breakout would the bumps, etc jump around from week to week and last for 3+ weeks (all while on 1Gram/day valtrex) or would expect the bumps to come and go generally at the same time?
2) Regarding swab tests, assuming my friends test detected virus and was then typed correctly (which is what I’m being told), how certain is it that one could count on the HSV1 result? Do they sometimes detect virus and miss the typing? Or is it such that if virus is detected and typing is performed- that it’s reliable?
Also- can you also get bumps on your chest /arms?
I very much appreciate your help!
