I tested positive for hsv2 and hsv1

my hsv1 was nearly 20 over the positive and the hsv2 was right on the positive level.

I have hsv2 oral and im unsure if i should get treated. I have a few questions


I had hsv1 for a few years on my genital, never oral.  I never noticed an outbreak.

was my hsv1 level  so high because i just contracted the hsv2 and that was my bodys way of treating it?

It i seek treatment will my natural tolerance go down?  my hsv2 syptoms are somewhat mild, should i get treatment.

what is treatment, how long do you take the pill and when do you stop?

No, they can both cause multiple lesions. I'd say you have an oral HSV-1 infection.

Now for genital, what issues are you having there?

I wouild guess that you do not have genital herpes. It is very unlikely to get a genital HSV-1 with an established oral infection. Further I doubt your HSV-2 is a true positive. This all suggests you had a bump and nothing more.

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
