Can you tell me what can it mean when your STD results for hsv-1 IgG says abnormal 3.667 (h)?

In brief: HSV infections

HSV-1 means herpes simplex virus above the waist.
Usually presents with cold sores or mouth ulcerations. HSV-2 means gential herpes. While active disease gives an abnormal test by IgM. But herpes is forever. There is good treatment however. See your family doc for this like acyclovir.
