THEN IT SAYS THIS FOR BOTH:
This assay is type specific and will differentiate between HSV-1 and HSV-2 infections. A single positive result only indicates previous immunologic exposure and the level of antibody response may not be used to determine active infection or disease stage. The test should be repeated in 4-6 weeks when negative or equivocal results are obtained in suspected early herpes simplex disease.
OMGosh, I did not know you guys had answered me, Thank you very much for the quick replies. I have gotten tested because I've been having some crazy burning sensations along with some pimple like bumps that are small and grow to the standard size of pimples that do rupture and crust over. This started off to what looked to me like a cold sore. I feel burning on my scrotum testicle area, I feel burning on and around my lips, and upper lip. I wake up with huge bags under my eyes at times, it hurts to walk because I have burning inside and around my buttocks and when I feel around, I can feel small pimple like bumps that burn which I can't see because they are out of my visuals. Sometimes I have eye irritation and I sometimes notice white tiny flaky spots stuck at the very ends of my eye lashes that can flake off like dandruff. For some reason I have been noticing more oily skin then usual on my forehead and areas where theres a lot of tiny bumps that are starting to grow. I have had lots of small itchy bumps on my forehead for over a month now, but some do get bigger then others. The doctor has given me amoxicillin and another med that I think was called bactrim, both did not help.
