Reactivation?: Almost all human herpesvirus type 6 (HHV6) infections over age two are due to reactivation of distant past childhood infection.

Positive EBV but inactive. Positive HHV6 active, cocksackie virus active. I know nothing about these but I'm so very tired. Any insight helps.?

Online testing?: Sounds like you have been tested through an online service or something similar. It is normal to be infected with these viruses or have antibody to them, and despite claims by those who do the tests, there is no reliable way to tell by blood test whether they are "active". None of them is a likely explanation of feeling tired. See a doctor for professional evaluation and advice. Good luck! ...Read more

Can htlv have the same symptoms as hiv? Cannot get a diagnoses. Terrible symptoms for 4 months following oral sex. Also confirmed hhv6 infection.

HTLV is unlikely: As in my previous reply, HTLV is not known to be transmitted by oral sex. You don't say your symptoms, but apparently you think they are similar to ARS (acute HIV infection). If so, probably your symptoms are not due to any infection at all from that exposure. If related to that event, I would think about an anxiety reaction, not an infection. Almost certainly not HTLV. ...Read more

What causes cold urticaria and solar urticaria in the same patient? Could it be an hhv6 infection/encephalitis she had at 18 months?

Urticaria: It's not known why these two conditions occur. They may be inherited or caused by a virus. In the case of solar urticaria, there is also activation of some antigen in the skin by ultraviolet light which then causes an ige reaction. Ige is an antibody responsible for immediate hypersensitivity reactions of which urticaria is one. The mechanisms and causes of these are not entirely worked out yet. ...Read more
