Understanding Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2 IgG & IgM in Bangalore

What is Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2 IgG & IgM in Bangalore?

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2 IgG & IgM test is performed to screen for Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) infection. This test checks if a person has antibodies (IgG or IgM) against HSV-1 & 2; the two types of herpes viruses that cause oral and genital herpes respectively, but cannot differentiate between them. IgM antibodies indicate a recent infection whereas IgG antibodies indicate past exposure to the virus. Oral herpes is characterized by symptoms like cold sores and blisters near the mouth or on the face while genital herpes shows symptoms like itching and blisters around genital areas etc. Herpes can be prevented by avoiding unprotected intercourse and refraining from physical contact (kissing) with someone who is infected.

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2 IgM

The  Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2 IgM test is designed to detect IgM antibodies that are produced as a body's first response to a HSV infection. IgM antibodies may take up to 10 days to develop.  Also, these antibodies are usually present in higher concentrations shortly after an infection and eventually decrease after a time period (7-10 days). Therefore, the presence of HSV-1 or HSV-2 IgM antibodies typically suggests a recent infection.

Early detection allows doctors to detect symptoms quickly and provide necessary medical interventions to individuals suffering from HSV infection, leading to better outcomes and improved quality of life.
