[Question #6660] Herpes

14 months ago
I recently tested positive for HSV 1 for IGG after years of testing negative. I also tested positive for CMV. Does this positive result for HSV1 mean that I have herpes? I have never had a cold sore so can I trust this test and I was thinking that maybe the CMV has an impact on my results because they are under the same family.

There is no relationship between the results of the two tests whatsoever.  What was the index value of your HSV 1 IgG test that was positive, please?
