What are the chances of a reactive Hepatitis A IgM antibody test being a false positive? Igg test was negative. Can you get a false positive if you've got a cold or flu when the test is run?

In brief: Maybe

Lab error is always a possibility.
For now, assume you have hepatitis A, practice good hygiene, and go about your activities as you are able -- as if you really had it. Best wishes.
