I would think yes, your index values would be higher but I think there is some confusion here with the results that you report. It would be EXTREMELY unusual that you would test with the exact same value for HSV 1 and 2 and that it would be EXACTLY the cut off for positive. Are you sure about these numbers? Alsok I would advise that you get it swab tested right away if it returns, using PCR, not culture. Only 4% of people who get shingles once, get another recurrence.
