Herpes Type 1 & 2 Test


The Herpes Type 1 & 2 Test is designed to determine if you’ve contracted HSV-1 or HSV-2. Typically HSV-1 is associated with oral herpes (or cold sores) and HSV-2 associated with genital herpes, although either strain can appear on either part of the body. Both oral and genital herpes are extremely common and are spread by coming into contact with another person’s open sores. Transmission is not exclusive to sexual intercourse or contact. In fact, many people contract HSV-1 as children after being kissed innocently by a well-intentioned relative. There is currently no cure for either HSV-1 or HSV-2, but both can be treated and your physician will be able to discuss the right treatment options for you with the help of this Herpes Type 1 & 2 Test.
