Hello XXXXXXX,
I have read and complete follow through your STD profile report.
You are suffering from Genital Herpes caused by HSV type 1 as lab report shows positive for antibody to HSV 1 and value is above normal.You may repeat the test particularly HSV 1 & 2 from well known laboratory if you are not symptomatic.
All other test results are within normal limit including Hepatitis C which is negative.
Consult with your dermatologist/physician for clinical examination and take suggestive measures accordingly.
Need to take complete course of anti viral drug therapy with Tab Acyclovir.Maintain personal hygiene. Practice safe sex with protected measures and using condoms.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish your better health.

Am querying current line of thinking by several consultants. Admitted to hospital May 2011; lumbar puncture showed elevated CSF protein of 1088 mg/L with 228 white cells, 95% lymphocytes. The working diagnosis was viral meningitis, and I was discharged after 2 days aciclovir. Negative for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2. Developed infection in leg early October 2011, followed by painful groin, then ulcers either side of scrotum - non painful, and diagnosed as shingles. Mid October 2011, following tinitus, buzzing , hearing different frequencies, then vertigo, admitted for 2 weeks in ID ward...CSF showed 614 white cells with 90% lymphocytosis. CSF protein raised at 1335 mg/L. Tested for everything under the sun, incl. HIV, syphillis, Lyme disease, Cat scratch fever (leg infection thought to have been through an insect bite). All negative, incl. ANA. Chest x-ray, MRI scan of brain and whole spine also negative. Admitted again 26th December 2011, aciclovir for seven days, now back home feeling well, if a little tired. Current thought is Mollarets meningitis, but more recently, rheumatology dept. thinking Behcets syndrome, as I suffer from mouth ulcers. My contention is this; I have sufferd from mouth ulcers since a teenager taking exams at school. If I have a job interview, I will get mouth ulcers after @ 48 hours. Dentist thinks stress induced, as do I. I have no aching joints and no eye irritation, also, just found out that HLAB51 negative. I am a 42 year old British male and caucasian. I can t help feeling there s a square peg being pushed into a round hole here. What about migraine; the tinitus, buzzing and vertigo? Also, I took a non-steroidal (Ibuprofen) prior to the first two episodes. Bickerstaff s encephalitis sounds just as plausible as Behcets...or am I in denial? I would appreciate any advice, even if it s to simply face the music . Thank you for your time.

I was diagnosed with HSV-1 in my genital area and since I was diagnosed I have had issues with constipation. Also, the lips of my vagina are pretty red as well and my groin area seems to be red as well. Doctor thought it may be a yeast infection. I have tried stool softeners and ansoul suppositories because of the constipation and hemmrhoids. I also tried nystatin for on the lips of my vagina too.
I'm still having some discomfort around the anus area and havent had a regular bowel movement for some time.

Im also taking daily treatment for the HSV-1. 400 mg of Acyclovir 1 time a day.
Someone, please help me feel back to "normal"

4 days ago I woke up with red rash on my right arm. Went to VA Doctor and he said it was shingles. he called in a rush order of VALACYCLOVIR HCL 1GM TAB. That was Wednesday and the drug is still not here. I expect it will be Monday before it is in my mail. In teh mean time the rash is getting worse and spreading to insides of my fingers, which is quite uncomfortable as I am right handed. What can I do for the next 48 hours to help with the rash and pain until the anti viral meds arrive. Also now that it will be 5 days since getting this how well will the drugs work?
