A member asked:

Is it possible to have herpes over 20 years and not know it. how can yoube tested for it if the blister is in your rectum?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Get a culture: Current blood tests for herpes only tell whether you have been exposed to the virus, not whether it is present in a silent or latent form somewhere in your body. The best test to have would be a culture of the fluid inside a blister.
