Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.Herpes
is easily diagnosed through a physical examination, and a confirmation is given once the laboratory reports a positive result. So, as your doctor has already physically examined you, and suspects herpes, the diagnosis is almost 50 % made. All you can do now is to follow the treatment regimen strictly, avoid sexual contact in all forms and maintain good personal hygiene.
Once the laboratory reports a result, if positive, all you have to do is to continue the medications, and if it reports a negative result, an elaborate screening for all sexually transmitted infections will be required.
Unfortunately, from your side, currently there is nothing more you can do. Wishing you lots of luck a speedy recovery. Please practice safe sexual intercourse in the future.
