Ok ok I see your point. Please bear with me and take just 1 or 2 more questions please. 1. Herpes is usually transmitted only when there are open or obvious sores? I mean suppose I have perfectly healthy clean lips then my kiss is not risky for my kids? Like on cheeks?
2. Is chickenpox related to Hsv? I mean if I had chickenpox as a child then would my hsv test be necessarily positive?
Sorry for excessive posting. It's just that I am terrified right now. Have to go to my brother's wedding in an hour. Don't know how will I hold up myself there. :(
1. yes, with no lip sores its ok to kiss
.2. Chicken pox is not related to HSV
Ok thanks. Will visit a doc tomorrow.
Went to the doc. He says nothing to worry because "it's no big deal". He says no further testing is required. However I have given a sample for HSV 2 igg and IGM test. If it's negative then I have HSV 1 and if it's positive then I have hsv 2. It's that simple right? I mean can it be so that I have both hsv 1 and hsv 2??
My report came and it is confusing like hell. See my hsv 1 and 2 combo test was negative for igm but positive for igg. Now my hsv2 standalone test is negative for igg and positive for igm with a value of 2.02.
What to make of this??? How can igm be negative in a combo test but turnout to be positive in a specific test??
Does it mean that I am positive for hsv1 igg and positive for hsv2 igm??? Even if it is so then why didn't the positive igm result show in my combo test??
Any explanation will be most welcome.
