I would say that with no symptoms, and no other reason to think you have hsv2, you should read it as negative. Most experts in the field think anything under a 3.5 should be considered suspect, especially in the presence of hsv1, which you have. They feel the 1.10 cut off for positive is too low.
There are some who feel that without symptoms, herpes blood testing shouldn't be done. I can see their point, because of situations like yours. It can end up in an anxiety spiral of retests, etc. You can retest if you'd like, but unless you know of a partner you've had that's positive, I don't see a big need for it.
Thanks, they retested the blood to confirm and that was the result I got. I guess I was shaken because I wasn’t 1.1 or higher, yet I was told I was straight out positive by the tester.
Auntiejessi why arent you recommending that he take thr western blot? I have seen throughout thr forum and people are told to retest the same test.
Anyway the westernblot should be taken to rule this out @luca122
