I am absolutely SHOCKED that any doctor would do a herpes antibody test on a child. We’ve known for a very long time that at least half of the positive in children are false positives. In addition, the CDC says never to use IGM tests and the Mayo Clinic lab discontinued using them in 2019 and both Quest and LabCorp are going to stop using them in 2022 due to high levels of false positives.
This has not been handled well and I’m so sad for you to have gone through this. Please disregard.
