Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   hi
User :   i just consulted a doctor about an hour ago, can you read our chat chat history first before proceeding?
Doctor :   XXXXXXXXe

Doctor :  
Give me a minute
User :   sure
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
I believe you had doubt regarding Herpes 2
User :   the last doctor diagnosed that it's more likely a gastrointestinal infection rather than my worries
Doctor :   Yes

Doctor :  
That is more a possibility in your case
User :   I just spoke with her and she told me she did not experience diarrhea at all, no vomiting, just uneasiiness in the stomach (she currently has temperature of 38.9 Celcius (it dropped to 37C right after her dinner)
Doctor :  
Are you having the same query now?
Doctor :   Yes

Doctor :  
it is seen in mild infections and also in amebic infestations
User :   yes
User :   yesterday, her stomach pain was major, now high temperature, backaches, and headaches are her symptoms
Doctor :   and rotaviral or hepatitis A infections as well

Doctor :  
It is a presentation with fever
Doctor :  
it shall subside once the infection clears
User :   so you mean there are many cases in which you are infected with rota or hep A but with no diarrhea nor vomitting?
Doctor :   Yes

Doctor :  
that is possible
User :   as you may have already read, I have no symptoms at all
Doctor :  
that is dependent on the individual's immune system
User :   I asked her just now if she has any pain or uneasiness in/on her body, but she said only headache & backache
Doctor :  
one thing you should be pretty sure about is that she is less likely to be infected with Herpes
User :   wow, you can't imagine how happy I am reading your diagnosis
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
that is a medical fact
User :   I am so confused reading thru the wikipedia. It seems like every desease is related to one another
Doctor :   Without background knowledge, one is bound to get confused with the content floating on the net

User :   so you also stand by the first doctor's diagnosis that the probability of her contracting herpes is like 1%
Doctor :   Yes, 0.01 chances means the same

User :   May I ask you sir, what is our specialty?
User :   what is your, I mean
Doctor :  
I am a General Practitioner
User :   May I ask more about your service before I go?

Doctor :  
Bangalore, India
User :   and how long have you (as a whole entity) been in this business( internet consulting)
Doctor :   We have been in the field from the past 2 years and a month

User :   since this is thru internet, I was hesitant at first in asking your service.
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :

User :   but I was really relieved at least knowing that this case is not herpes related
Doctor :   Ok
