Yes: Will get the viral particles which will definitively prove hsv. Can diagnose clinically or with other tests but not 100%.

PCR: PCR tests have mostly replaced viral cultures for diagnosing HSV. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine
