Hi Ucok89, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Anti-HSV-1 test is a blood test that detects the presence of immune substances / anitbodies against herpes simplex virus / herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection. HSV consists of HSV 1 and HSV 2 which can cause herpes labialis (herpes infection of the mouth area) and genital herpes. This anitbody examination also consists of two types, namely immunoglobulin M (IgM) and immunoglobulin G (IgG). IgM examination indicates an ongoing infection / current infection while IgG indicates an infection that has occurred in the past. If your anti-HSV-1 IgG test is positive, this result indicates that you have been infected in the past and that your body has built up immune substances / antibodies. To find out whether this condition needs to be followed up further, information is needed about the anti-HSV-1 IgM test because the results of the anti-HSV-1 IgG examination cannot be interpreted by themselves.


Please bring the results of this examination to the doctor who previously examined you and suggested this examination. The doctor will explain these findings to you and determine the next steps for treatment.


Hope this information is helpful.


Dr. Aloisia
