It sounds like you took a combined test I will get a type specific test for type 1 and type 2 alone and see what you get you may have oral HSV-1 just like 80% of the world population and we're doing a combined test it'll catch this just doesn't differentiate between the two

It is an older style test but is not essentially that different to ELISA testing as per say the Herpeselect.

I believe with this test there is a single control sample of antibodies to antigen that is defined as 100 arbitrary units per mL. The fluro density of your sample compared to the control sample derives an equally arbitrary estimate of antibodies in the test sample.

Hence the most critical issue here is what is the cutoff value for positive? Is it not 100? is it 20?

Your test result should show you a reference range for positive. Does it say something like > 20 positive or > 100 positive?

IgG tests are based on an antigen that’s is extracted from the envelope of the virus itself. It’s called Glycoprotein G. This protein in theory attracts just one type specific HSV IgG antibody.

In practice though, low positive readings are possible as other proteins occasionally stick to glycoprotein G.

However even if you have herpes you test wasn’t type specific. You’d probably have oral HSV-1 from childhood if it is truly positive.

Well hm cutt of number I don't know there is enything on report like legend its just paper says 28.6 au/ml positive hsv1&2 don't know the strain the real problem  for me is after 12 days from exposure I get tested no igm, igg was positive I had just a small bump but after 10 more days I get uti burning sensation  when urinate lower back pain balanitis my glans was red around urethra little bit tender on touch white chunks under foreskin, generally feel like shit and so depresed so couldn't do another herpes test this hospital only provide some test (I try to change test place) so here they find yielded moderate growth of enterococcus faecalis inside urethra and in my urine now I don't know is this becouse herpes or this bacteria I get antibiotics and after 7 days stops

      There is nothing to argue with on the basis of pictures or what one might think. The PCR test is a billion times more authoritative than a guess based on visual.

      You’ve seen my pics, you weren’t able to argue they weren’t herp

      @Ole that is not so good and makes it imperative to identify what is going on. Hopefully you can obtain the type specific test. Keep an open mind for other possible causes too.

      I would have to disagree with you on this. I have HSV2 on my mouth and I get outbreaks often. The person who gave it to me also had oral HSV2 and would have outbreaks every couple weeks. Also this Squarex newspost cites the prevalence of oral HSV2. They did not cite any primary literature but it sounds about right.  https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/squarex-announces-positive-results-from-completed-phase-2-study-of-sqx770-in-the-prevention-of-recurrent-herpes-labialis-300896065.html "Herpes labialis is a common condition characterized by blisters or erosions on the lips and skin around the mouth and nose. Most cases are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), but 10-15% of cases are caused by HSV-2 with this percentage reportedly increasing. "
