Can I Go to the Doctor If I'm Worried About Herpes?

Q:
Can I go to the doctor if I’m worried about herpes?

A:
Sometimes people mistake a pimple or ingrown hair for herpes.

Your doctor can take a small sample from sores by using a swab test. If you don’t have symptoms but think you might have herpes, your doctor can do a blood test. It may take a few days to get your results.
