Hello i was just diagnosed with hsv1 via igg test, my results came in at 60.10 its really high I've heard, i suspected i caught it 7 months ago, do you think it would of been then or does the test point out I've had it years if not my whole life, i have pretty acne prone skin and i tend to breakout around my mouth area so, for me its hard to tell if its hsv1 or a breakout and about 7 months ago i had sexual intercourse with a female no oral, but I've had recurrent irritation down there been seen by multiple physicians that say folliculitis, because only occurs in hair follicle, and i also have molluscum that i have been trying to deal with.

Hey @Vince3535, your test is perfectly normal. Many people test about that level, but often results are capped at 5 or 8 because it doesn't really mean very much.

It does point to a well established infection. The odds heavily sit with an oral infection from your childhood here. Most likely one or both of your parents have it. This is very helpful as it means you are not at all likely to get HSV-1 genitally.
