A:   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.
