Brief Answer: Refer below Detailed Answer: Presence of HSV IG g positive indicates that you may have had previous herpes infection or chronic infection. The presence of IgG-class antibodies to either HSV type 1 or 2 does not differentiate between remote infection or acute disease. Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Brief Answer: Refer below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for follow up! The test you have undergone cannot clearly differentiate whether you have Herpes 1 or 2. Detection of IgG-class antibodies to Herpes should not be used routinely as the primary means of fully diagnosing Herpes infection. You need further testing like PCR, Herpes virus culture. You need to discuss this with your treating doctor as well, so that based on clinical findings appropriate management plan will be decided. Hope I have answered your query.
