Helooo doctor can you please help me on this I made a blood test for herpes it cames out IgG postive 158 and IgM negative 0.08 do I have herpes?
No. Simply shows previous exposure with production of memory antibodies.
Yes. It means you have been exposed in the past, and so yes, you do have a chronic infection.
Do I infect other if I tested for herpes blood test IgG positive 158 and IgM negative 0.08? And what negative IgG means? Thank you
I had herpes blood test 1&2 IgG positive 158 IgM negative 0.08 they told me I don't have herpes are they correct? I'm so confused please help me
Yes. They are correct. Igm tells us if you have an acute or active infection. This was negative, so you do not. The igg tells us you have previously been exposed or infected. This was positive, so you have. Read more...
My gf had a cold sore on her lips and all the time I was kissing her when I made a herpes blood test it came out IgG postive IgM negative?
Not to worry. Cold sores are caused by herpes virus but the majority of people in the us have been infected & many never get cold sores (even though once you get it it stays in your body). Your test shows you were got herpes long ago but have no sign of recent exposure. You can't catch it from your girlfriend because you already have it. However, she could spread it to your genital region so take precautions! Read more...
