A female asked:

If a sexual health doc tests you for a yeast infection under a microscope and it's positive, and say there is no way its herpes is that good enough?

Yeast and herpes: No. That means the rash tested is Yeast. The rash is not herpes. But this is not how herpes is diagnosed. Herpes is diagnosed with a blood test. Or a visual inspection of a cluster of blisters.
