I am assuming you meant HSV instead of HIV. 28 years ago, the testing was not as good as it is today in both sensitivity and the ability to differentiate between different types of the herpes virus. The lower back is a somewhat unusual place to get HSV1 unless you're a wrestler.|
You mentioned that, 28 years ago, you also tested positive for HSV2. Did your recent testing check for that, too?
If you've been using valtrex suppressively for some time, it's somewha possible that it might affect the recent testing, but I'd like to hear from one of the medically trained folks on that. Why are you taking valtrex? Is it for your oral symptoms?
