If results confirm that it is what we suspect, then I can make a choice about treatment strategy,
In addition to the test for
hsv 1 and hsv 2, they are testing for
syphilis and hiv, though it will take weeks to reliably test for the latter. The doctor said that particular risk was "highly unlikely" in my case, though it only eases my mind to a point.
Anyway, that's the latest.
