  • i had a blister in my vagina, with pus .it was like a pimple.i did a test for hvs2 when it  was cured,the result was negative. but after one month it came again. i have a doubt about that where i have hvs 2 or not. can u explain it? if i do a test now will it be positive?

    Your doctor should have told you that you needed to do the test before your blister healed over ,thats why the test was negative. For a definative answer you need to have a blood test for this virus or a culture test done on an open blister where they can test the secretions.

    Thanks so much for your question. I am not a trained health professional, so I cannot answer your question directly. What I can do is refer you to some information on our site that might help you decide what your next steps will be.

     

    For starters, check out our Symptoms page. It breaks down the different signs of herpes and tells you what to look for.  Also, if you're interested, check out our Treatment page.

     

     Before you go to the doctor, which i suggest you do if you're concerned that the first test wasn't correct, make sure you read Dr. Charlotte Grayson's blog How To Choose a Doctor if You Have Herpes.

     

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.

     

    Thanks
