Old or recent herpes infection? Herpes 6 ab panel blood results: herpes virus 6 igm neg:<1:10<1:10(my value) herpes virus 6 IgG pos<.99 mine 13.56

Old or recent herpes infection? Herpes 6 ab panel blood results: herpes virus 6 igm	neg:<1:10<1:10(my value) herpes virus 6 IgG pos<.99	 mine	13.56

I don't get it: Herpes 6 is the roseola virus which infects nearly all of us since early childhood. There is speculation about some possible indirect relationship to multiple sclerosis. It is not an std! it is not the same as herpes simplex which is responsible for genital herpes or cold sores (hsv 2, hsv1). Why test for hsv6?. Acyclovir will yield no benefit for this unless you have a (rare) acute hh6 infe. ...Read more

epstein virus (ebna) ab (igg) >5.

Makes perfect sense: Igm antibodies rise only during the actual, acute infection. They then fade away and are replaced by the various igg antibodies, which are the ones that provide lifetime protection against the same strain of the virus. So your numbers are consistent with the fact you had mono years ago. There is no igm, and positive igg levels. So you are immune and do not currently have mono. ...Read more

EBV early antigen Ab, IgG <9; EBV Eb, VcA, IgG >600; EBV nuclear antigen Ab IgG 108. Diagnossed with CAEBV infection. Does this sound right to you?

Maybe.: The profile is of a past infection. I am not sure if it can be diagnosed just by symptoms and evidence of past infection. I think you would need the second criteria of diagnosis which is DNA of EBV in peripheral tissue or blood detectable through PCR test with a low anti-EA. Have other diagnoses like Lyme's been tested for? ID specialist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3245398/ ...Read more

Does one's first cold sore outbreak mean that the virus was contracted recently?

Does one's first cold sore outbreak mean that the virus was contracted recently?

Cold sore: Not necessarily. You could have contracted the virus a long time ago, did not cause an infection but made its way to one of your nerve roots to hibernate. For some reason, it decided to come to the surface and cause the cold sore. ...Read more

Diagnosed w/ hsv1&hsv2. Hsv2 was cultured from genitals. Hsv1 antibodies in bloodwork. W/ no cold sore, would kissing my daughter spread it to her?

Confusion with label: Decades ago we looked at T1 as cold sore & T2 as genital, but no more. Whether changes in sexual practices or better research, we know that both types give rise to genital herpes. You cannot pass either type to your kid by kissing without an active cold sore. ...Read more

Have wrong info. Herpes 1 IgG positive. Herpes II IgG indeterminate. How is herpes 1 transmitted via flu or cold sores stress?

Have wrong info.  Herpes 1 IgG positive. Herpes II IgG indeterminate.  How is herpes 1 transmitted via flu or cold sores stress?

Herpes simplex: Herpes simplex is transmitted by direct contact with a lesion or the body fluid of an infected individual.Transmission may also occur through skin-to-skin or mucous membrane contact during periods of asymptomatic shedding. Barrier protection methods are the most reliable method of preventing transmission of herpes, but they merely reduce rather than eliminate risk. ...Read more

High HIV viral load in saliva striking the tonsil/throat bhnd mouth durng kissn can trnsmt hiv? As like body flud in oral symptoms strkng the back thrt?

Misinformed?: There is no such thing as a high viral load for HIV in saliva. There is zero history in the whole epidemic of HIV transmission from saliva. No transmission from kissing regardless of the health of the mouth of the person being kissed. But, HIV infected semen are well known to be a risk for HIV transmission during receptive oral sex if HIV infected semen is present in the throat. ...Read more

Had stomach virus (think) 3days ago, felt better one day, now fever again, weakness, cough, malaise, headache. Still stomach virus or?

Hard to know: Two phase illnesses like yours are recognised in the study of infections and usually but not always mean virus. Where you live is an important clue. In any case it is impossible to diagnose you with this condition online. Doesn't sound like a stomach virus. If you don't recover quickly and perhaps even if you do ~I would go and see a doctor, an Infectious Disease doctor if you can. ...Read more
