HSV2 igg 1.5 IGM neg no s/s of infection. never lesions,   Thoughts. false (+) or (+) genital herpes infection. virus dormant like HSV1? any worries

Maybe false positive: The HSV IgM antibody test is notoriously unreliable. Real herpes and STD experts never order that test and always ignore the result and so should you. If you have also had an IgG antibody test that is negative, you can safely assume your IgM result is false and that you don't have HSV2. ...Read more

Most people carry hsv 1 without symptoms. This is important to intimate partners. Disc ...Read more

Can you get genital herpes simplex virus 2 from someone who has oral herpes 1?

Can you get genital herpes simplex virus 2 from someone who has oral herpes 1?

Yes: Oral herpes simplex virus-1, can be transmitted to the genitals via fellatio or cunnilingus, just as hsv-2 can be transmitted from person's genitals to an other person's mouth. Thus you should avoid oral sex with anyone with a sore on his or her mouth. Hsv is extremely contagious even in the absence of symptoms or visible lesions. Thus beware! ...Read more

Tested positive for herpes 1 IgG & indeterminate for herpes 2 igg. On doc visit felt nodule. Would herpes 2 cause that? Felt eenlarged lymph nodes

Doubt it.: A positive herpes igg means that you were exposed to the virus at some point, which triggered the production of antibodies. You don't say where the nodule is, but herpes does not typically cause nodules, or enlarged nodes unless you are acutely infected. ...Read more

My HSV 1 + 2  IgM 0.50  and  HSV 1 + 2 IgG serum 24.28  but not mention which hsv 1 or 2  I little confused  why they not mention?? I am from India

HSV blood tests: You have HSV1, 2, or both. Ignore the IgM results. HSV IgM antibody in theory detects early infection, but the test is inherently very unreliable. Also, IgM antibody never tells HSV1 from HSV2. Some IgG antibody tests also do not differentiate HSV1 from 2, and that seems to be the case here. Ask your doctor about having a type specific IgG test that accurately measures antibody to both HSV1 & 2. ...Read more

Is it true that herpes simplex virus 1 turns into herpes simplex virus 2 when contacted on genitals?

No: Herpes 1 and herpes 2 are two different types of the same virus. Usually hsv1 causes cold sores and hsv2 causes genital herpes. However, one can see either type in both sites. It isn't a matter of the virus "turning into" the other. ...Read more
