HSV 1 IgG- A positive herpes IgG test only tells you that at some point in time you acquired the herpes virus.
It is positive in cases of past dormant infections as well.So no need to worry about HSV 1 IgG positive results especially if you don't have any symptoms.
Almost 70-90% of Americans test positive for HSV-1.
It can be acquired during childhood from close contacts with relatives etc.
Usually HSV 1 causes cold sore.

ELISA test doesn't detect the actual viral load so no need to worry about high values.
Kissing can transmit HSV 1 during asymptomatic phase as well.
You can develop a cold sore when your body immunity is low.
