hello,
I got tested about 3 weeks ago for Herpes simplex virus as I had a red mark on the head of my penis. the first time I went the doctor said just a burst bloody vessel from sport. so i left it and it didnt go away.. 2nd time i went back and he did a herpes test just to make sure it wasnt he really believed it wasnt as it didnt look like it and I didnt have any symptoms. 3 days later it came back saying I was positive for HSV2 which I was dumb founded! I didnt believe it and I got really depressed and also came down with the flu which I am not sure had to do with the HSV2 diagnosis. I went back to a sexual health specialist because i could not believe it and she said no way is that herpes it is thrush and gave me cream which within 3 days cleared up everything and I was no longer sick either. she did a test for hsv2 just incase and it came back as chicken pox virus? WHAT THE ***l haha
