Hsv 2 Ig G Herpeselect With Reflex
I did the test for herpes 2, and it came:hsv 2 IgG herpeselect ab positive.What is the medication for this?
HSV 2 : A positive igg antibody test (what you had) for hsv means you have antibodies from a previous infection--not necessarily a current one. Treatment depends on how often you break out--if you don't break out often, you may not need anything. There is no permanent treatment to rid yourself of the virus. Your doc can give you the best advice. ...Read more
I got a 1.07 for a HSV 2 IgG test. I was positive for HSV 1. What should I do next? Do I have herpes?
Reference range: Is the value 1.07 higher than the normal range for the lab that did the test? If yes, you are infected with HSV 2. Herpes viruses,both HSV 1 and 2, live in the nerve endings forever and a person can pass it on to others even if there are no visible lesions. You may wish to consult an infectious disease specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
My HSV 2 IGG type specific AB read <0.90. Is this negative for the virus? Equivocal says .90-1.10. Would I be on the line? HSV 1 is >5.00.
I tested positive for hsv 2 with 3.1 igg but negative for hsv 1
The weird thing is when I was pregnant I was tested and didn't have hsv 2 but had hsv?
HSV2, prob not HSV1: Probably you meant positive for HSV1 when pregnant, right? Was that a blood test or swab test from a genital lesion? The blood test is less reliable for HSV1 than HSV2. Or maybe lab reporting error and you really had HSV2. At present, you can be quite sure you have HSV2 (almost certainly genital). But speak with your doctor about confirmatory testing, ideally with a Western blot test. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there any facility to confirm HSV 2 in india like glycoprotin test i got ELISA negtiv 2times and once IgG positiv please tell me laboratry name plz?
HSV 2: You cannot differentiate between hsv types 1 and 2 using antibody testing because of the high frequency of cross-reactivity. The only sure way to do this is to isolate the virus from active lesions and test the virus for serotypes. This is fairly sophisticated, but imagine most large medical schools in india may have a lab that can do this. ...Read more
No: Not really good or bad--nearly all adults have positive antibodies to herpes (HSV) and most of that is HSV 1--this is the virus that causes oral cold sores mostly, though can cause genital lesions. HSV 2 usually causes genital herpes--lesions in the genital area--but can cause oral herpes too. Being negative for HSV 2 just means you've never had that type of herpes. \. ...Read more
HSV 1 IgG 28.10 Reference range: 0.00 to 0.90 HSV 2 IgG <0.91Reference range: 0.00 to 0.90Unit: index(note)Negative <0.91 i dont understand?
High level on hsv 1 igg test. 49.90. No clue how. Been with the same woman for 12 years. Hsv 2 negative. Please explain this high level?
HSV 1 vs HSV2: your findings indicate exposure to HSV1 virus and development of antibodies against, it is the one reponsible for the facial and oral infection occuring in chilhood, or less commonly in adults, at times referred to as 'cold sores'. HSV2 is mainly sexually transmitted, which isn't the case with you ...Read more
On August 1, 2016 I tested 1.94 for HSV 1 IgG and 21.70 for HSV 2 IgG. What does it mean? Am I hi positive with HSV2? Should sex be totally avoided?
Protection: The above results tell you that you have been infected with both and currently have some protection against both. It does not tell you whether you have an active infection or not (IgM would be a better indicator) and thus you cannot rule out transmitting HSV2 during sex even in the absence of an active lesion. Best to use condom and to inform your partner about your HSV2 ...Read more
I want to know what these test results mean? Hsv 2 Igg type spec<0.91 index Hsv 1 Igg type spec <0.91 index Do I have it or not

What does this mean from my labs?
HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec H Final 19.30
Positive > 1.09
Genital herpes: Your test results show you are infected with HSV2. That means you have genital herpes, even if you haven't had any obvious outbreaks of genital blisters, sores, etc. See your doctor and discuss antiviral treatment (e.g. valacyclovir) to help prevent transmitting it to partners. You need to always inform sex partners you have it, and use condoms consistently to also reduce chance of infecting them. ...Read more
I'm very confused. I was just diagnose with hsv 1 IGG 1.29 and hsv 2 IGG 2.86. Don't have and outbreaks and girlfriend is negative. Can this b false?
Probably have HSV2: You probably have HSV1, but so do almost half of all adults, usually no big deal. Probably also have HSV2 (i.e. genital herpes) but maybe not. 1.1 is technically positive for HSV2, but most infected people have results over 3.0. Since 2.86 is close to that, most likely it's real. Genital herpes often causes no symptoms but still sexually transmissible. See an STD or infectious diseases specialist. ...Read more
HSV-1 IGG and HSV-2 IgG both say " <0.90" and below it says they are within normal limits .... what EXACTLY does it mean,never been exposed to either?

HSV 1 IgG type spec <0.91
HSV 2 IgG type spec 14.20
Meaning? Is 14.20 bad/high? Should I retest?
No outbreak so far.
Herpes type 2: You carry herpes simplex type 2-------genital herpes. It is very common and most people who have it have no symptoms. Even though they have no symptoms, or fail to recognize subtle symptoms or non-genital lesions, they may transmit the virus to others. You do not have herpes simplex type 1, which is not common. Most people carry hsv 1 without symptoms. This is important to intimate partners. Disc ...Read more
