Does IGM get reactivated during every oubreak of HSV.  Pt had one outbreak 20 yrs ago and IGG is positive?

Thank you.

30% of the time a + igm is falsely positive. it does sometimes reactivate during recurrences and it can also be positive due to other factors too.

the igg should be + if someone was infected 20 years ago.
