Dear Grace and other experts
this is for you hope you can help .
1. Per 《Updated Herpes handbook 》by Doc Terri Warren .The IGG blood test is the most accuracy way to diagnose HSV infection . But as i know IGG can be passed by mother to newborn .Hence ,is it mean IGG test for a baby is useless? as even the IGG of baby is postive but still not 100% means the baby was infected by HSV virus?
2. If acyclovir can effect the index value of IGG and IGM ?
My newborn baby was tested IGM as postive on his 12 days,after 14days acyclovir treatment the IGM now turnd to negtive . i leaned from Doc Terri that we shuold take IGG test only thats why m planing to do that . but meanwile i worry about IGG was passed to baby by his mother which can make us even confused of the coming IGG test result .
Thanks and best regards .
a very sad father .
