I done the igg test for herpes 1 and 2 which i knew would probably be positive for hsv1 because i've had a cold sore before.for hsv2 it said .91 does that mean i have hsv2?

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, you need to look at the reference range for this test at the lab that did the test. My feeling is that it is a negative result. Get HPV, Flu and Covid vaccines. Wish you good health!
