Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.I will assume you mean IgG levels for the test,the negative value for HSV1 is 1.09,as also a HSV2 value of over 1.09 will test positive for genital herpes.It will depend on where you have the lesions,he probably has had a herpes infection which is probably active/persisting.
