I know I have hsv1 for many years, never had an outbreak or I don’t remember if I had one as a kid. Had tested before and was positive 12.4 and 13. I had exposure on August 10 2019 and tested for everything mid November, everything came back negative but the hav1 at 52, and hsv2 at 1.02 which is equivocal. I thought it’s negative because I tested low positive in the past, hsv2 was 1.22 and few weeks later was 1.20, so I did western blot and came out negative. After the western blot I did couple of igg test and they were negative. On 24th of December 2019 something came on my lip and become a full blown outbreak, I don’t remember experiencing something like that before. I know I have hsv1 so I didn’t pay much attention to it. Yesterday I decided to do a hsv2 test to see if the 1.03 from my previous test got higher and got today a positive of 2.63. Since August I haven’t been sexually active.
How much of a chance is that to be false positive?
Also, is there a chance the outbreak on my lip to be hsv2?
