Good 'early' and 'aged' antibody testing for this exposure would be best at about six weeks or so. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The virus, once you have it, lives in nerve cells in sensory ganglia and an 'outbreak ' occurs when the virus multiplies, travels down the nerve axons to the skin (or, in the case of type ii, the genitalia) and produces skin vesicles. ...Read more
