I think it is like, if what your boyfriend described as a cold sore was actually a cold sore, that either you have HSV one and kissed him and he got a cold sore or he had it already. Your swab could’ve been positive for HSV one. It’s difficult to know exactly what’s going on here but I would encourage you to obtain a western blot for clarity. So far, everyone that had a positive IgG for HSV 2 but negative supplemental test from LabCorp, has been negative on the western blot. I believe we have almost 40 patients now who had that situation with us.
