Yes: Igm is + when getting infection for the 1st time, then becomes negative, it may become + with a flare up. Igg stay + forever. We get hsv1 (fever blister) mostly from our parents (kissing). Some people get flare ups frequently (stress , a cold...), other never get them but still can shed it (pass it to other). You probably have it (from your parents).
