Brief Answer:
HSV is ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

Ig M antibody positive indicates present infection. Repeated negative test rules out HSV infection.
The cause of the lesion is likely to be due to furuncle
It is inflammation of hair follicle caused by Staphylococcus. Exact diagnosis will depend on clinical examination.
I would suggest you to send me clinical photograph for further assessment.


Awaiting your response


Take care

Hello,

I am a 26-year old female who has just been diagnosed with HSV 2. I have been with my husband for 5 years and this is the first time I have experienced symptoms. He has never experienced symptoms. We have both been faithful. We have had unprotected sex for 5 years now. We have also both had previous partners before eachother. How likely is it that he also has HSV 2? Thank you.
