Hello XXXXXXX,
I have read and complete follow through your STD profile report.
You are suffering from Genital Herpes caused by HSV type 1 as lab report shows positive for antibody to HSV 1 and value is above normal.You may repeat the test particularly HSV 1 & 2 from well known laboratory if you are not symptomatic.
All other test results are within normal limit including Hepatitis C which is negative.
Consult with your dermatologist/physician for clinical examination and take suggestive measures accordingly.
Need to take complete course of anti viral drug therapy with Tab Acyclovir.Maintain personal hygiene. Practice safe sex with protected measures and using condoms.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish your better health.
