Aslong as I have it confirmed by you that I don’t have it I’m all good, thank you for your help doctor

Actually could you do me a massive favour and confirm it on here so I have a screenshot just incase I need it for the future?

Of course. So based on the result you've shown this is completely negative and means there is no Herpes infection detected whatsoever. This is just a case of a blocked pore after shaving for which I'd recommend using a new razor each time with a shaving gel that has Aloe Vera in it and also to use a post shave balm. Definitely 100% negative. All the best for the future.
