About 9 months ago i had a ingrown toe nail and some noted fungas in both big toes, was treat with lamisil but i only took it for about 3 weeks one toe cleared but the other didn't. since then the fungas grew in that one toe and caused it to become thick and painful. i have to admit i don't take care of my feet like i should and i almost never cut my toe nail unless it hurts and my job requires me to be on my feet in closed shoes. well long story short i did get a good pedicure and the tech cut my toe nail and pulled some build up from under neath the nail. i have no doubt i still have alot of fungus. NOW THE QUESTION IS COULD THAT CAUSE A FALSE POSITIVE HERPES TEST.
i was diagnosis about 2 weeks ago and my doctor said she was not concerned and did not want to put me on any meds because i never had a episode. she said i tested positive for herpes and my igg was 2.47 which she said was low but when i asked should i be retested in about 3 to 6 month she said it didn't matter she never seen a test show negative after a positive. i read that fungus can affect the test.
