Family, Internal Medicine, General Medical Questions/Viral tests
QUESTION: Is there a broad spectrum virus test a person can have done? I feel like I may still have something wrong even after antibiotics and negative sdi tests. I really wish there was a way to test for anything that is any bit likely in the US.
ANSWER: each viral test is individual for that specific virus, so you can't check everything, but there are finite illnesses that affect a specific organ or system, so you don't have to check for everything.

QUESTION: How about penis and reproductive organs pains? Any tests beyond sti tests for that region?
painful skin sores (obvious) could be herpes, non-painful skin sore could be syphilis, but if there are no skin changes, then we would at prostate (or bladder, less likely in a guy) problems......but the prostate problems are not viral, they are inflammatory or bacterial.
