I had safe sex (condom) with someone 3 months ago and I started having tingling and burning sensations roughly a week later, although mild. No bumps, lesions, colds, etc. I went to see my doctor and he told me it was jock itch. I was given Lamisil for 30 days and Claritin. My blood test was negative for HSV1 and 2 almost 1 month later. After completing the dose of Lamisil, I am having infrequent mild symptoms. Please advise....
Please ask your doctor to specifically test you for herpes, and or go to a Planned Parenthood for the testing.

Herpes can take something like 12-16 weeks for the virus to show up in your bloodstream. I'm having a hard time following how long after you had sex that you got tested. It sounds like 4 weeks to me. If this is correct, I'd get retested.

Thank you for your response. If herpes has surfaced the skin then how do I have it diagnosed? The symptoms are still present and now I am on oral Diflucan since the Lamisil did not work completely. I just don't know what else to do Please advise
