What can cause a false positive herpes test for HSV1?

First, I had just began taking a new vitamin. Then I had started having severe itching and a prickly feeling in my genital area where I wanted to pull my pubic hair out. Then I began bleeding, really old period blood for about a week. The week after my regular period began and after it stopped I was spotting still. I went to go get tested for STD's and came back positive with herpes, HSV1 at a 4.48 range. I had suspected that my partner had given me HSV1 through oral sex, but he went to get tested and came back negative. I have never tested positive,nor experienced any of these symptoms and I have been with my partner for a year and a half now, and only him. I have not had any regular symptoms of herpes, including no blisters or sores, just bleeding after I had rubbed myself raw from the itching. I now see a gray sore line in my genital area where it looks like it was from where I rubbed too hard. I am not getting over a yeast infection and my doctor had found bacterial vaginosis cells.

Could I have contracted an STD?

I received oral sex and vaginal sex from a sex worker. They were both with a condom and the vaginal sex was brief. Also, I had my boxers on so not a ton of skin contact. I got tested for all STDs 4 days after the incident (not sure if this was too soon). The outcome was negative. I am not really having any symptoms other than what I think is my guilty mind playing tricks on me. Am I just driving myself crazy, or could I have an STD? I appreciate any advice.
