I scratched tissue roughly from bad yeast infection nurse decided to do a HSV CULTURE w/ Reflex Typing just incase what does reflex typying mean?
Type of Herpes Test: Hi Ryan - Sometimes a yeast infection and a Herpes or HSV infection can cause similar symptoms of irritation in the genital area. The nurse is being cautious and helping make sure that Herpes is not the cause of the irritation. There are two types of HSV, HSV 1 and HSV 2. A reflex test asks the laboratory to determine which type of HSV it is only if EITHER type of HSV is detected to begin with. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Type 1 infections are marked by the eruption of vesicles on lips or at the external nares; type 2 by such lesions on the genitalia.

Can someone infected with HSV either type 1 or type 2 donate blood yearly? Is it contagious other than being it a skin disease? Can HSV be lethal?Thnx
Yes: Hsv infection is not a contraindication to blood donation; most of the population has hsv 1, so that would be very problematic.

My recent blood tests show positive for hsv type 1 IgG, negative for hsv 2 IgG and hsv1&2 IgM is positive. what does this mean and what should i do?
Have HSV1, no HSV2: You are infected with HSV1, like up to 90% adults in your country. You don't have HSV2, except maybe if exposed recently; it takes several weeks for the test to become positive. Ignore the IgM result; it's probably just another reflection of your HSV1 infection. In theory, positive IgM means new infection with either virus, but It's notoriously unreliable, rarely done by herpes experts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
