Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

You query states the following findings

Herpes simplex IgM OF 0.27 - This is normal.

HSV specific ab elevated at 8.8 - This is elevated. Here I am not sure which type of antibody or HSV type you are referring to. If you can upload the reports, I will be better able to help you.

HSV type 2 IgG 0.1 - This is normal. This means that an old or past infection with HSV type 2 can be ruled out.

Waiting for your reply.
