Thank you for your response.
To answer your question, I don’t believe I have ever had anything resembling a cold sore anywhere near my lips or the genitals area, which was why the positive result was surprising to me.
Yesterday, I received a Herpeselect IgG test at LabCorp for both HSV-1 and HSV-2 and both tests came back with just “negative”, without a specific IgG value. It says that the range for negative is <0.91. Should this give me additional peace of mind or is the false negative rate high enough with these tests that you would recommend further testing?
