the blood test is not new, that is one way to tell if someone has the virus. many doctors dont use this test though, and rather have the person come in when there is an outbreak. the reason is that many people have the virus but in their mouth-not genitals. the only way to know 100% for sure if it is genital is if you get a test when there is an outbreak. I am surprised that the doctor suggested a cream, usually women with herpes take pills beginning at around 36 weeks in order to prevent an outbreak at the time of delivery. outbreak at delivery = cesarean section
I far too am performing household research and have a friends and family connection for the restaurant. Mybr /grandfather H J Stevenson worked there for the period of time likely pre and post earth war one. His career inside the trade ended with him remaining head waiter during the 1952-1953 Royal tour of New Zealand.br /His father, William Stevenson, (my Great Grandfather) also worked on the restaurant, for what we understood was 40 ages. If anyone can help with any information on these two gentlemen,br /we can be more than the moon.
