This week I went to an Urgent Care with the complaints of vaginal itching.. Today I just so happened to look at my visit summary and noticed that Herpes Virus 8 DNA Real-Time PCR was ordered. Is this test normally used for genital herpes??? I’m confused

@WilsoInAus yes but this was a blood test

Oops geez another doc who doesn’t know what they are doing.

Sorry about that.

The only blood test with credibility is IgG type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.
