What does 3.90 antibodies mean?

I was resently tested and the IgG came back with a 3.90 antibody count. But I have never had a break out. I asked the doctor what it meant. She said I have it, but then another doctor said " It only means that you have the antibodies, if you have a break out come back and see us so we can swab. Who should I believe? Please help

3.90 means you do have "it".

You asked about this in the other thread and I'll address it here. You are still within the area where false positives are a possibility so since you've had no obvious symptoms, you should confirm your results with an additional test like the WB for herpes or a biokit hsv2 igg blood test. If it hasn't been at least 4 months since you last had sex, you'll need to wait to get this additional testing.
