Patient: Im now 15 years old and i was told when i was in third grade that i had herpes type 2 but i havent gotten any outreaks so im woundering could the doctor have made a mistake and maybe i dont have heroes ir do i have herpes?
Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.Testing for the Herpesvirus is done by using the Tzank smear. This is a smear that looks for cells that are characteristically like Herpes virus infection.I believe your Doctor is correct and you should take the correct medication. Hope this helps you. All the best.
