Hi, about 10 years ago I developed some blisters on the bottom cheek of buttocks about the size of a quarter. I went to the doctor and he took a quick look did no other test and told me it was herpes and gave me some cream which after about 2-3 weeks it was completely gone. A few years later since I had never had any symptoms or blisters again I asked the doctor about it and had a blood test taken and they said yes I had it but couldn't tell me which kind,and from reading on the internet about it I know there is 2 different simplex's of it and also they were a reoccuring thing (and which I never had them again) I was puzzled. So a few weeks ago I was talking to my new doctor and explaining my medical history and she told me that I could not have herpes because as I have never had another outbreak after 10 years and that it could only be diagnosed by taking a sample from the area when you have active blisters. So now I am totally confused and have been living all this time thinking I have herpes when I may not ! And I would please really like another opinion...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
