A positive result HIGH LEVELS of 4.35 (ie, the presence of IgM class herpes simplex virus [HSV] 1 and/or 2 antibodies) indicates recent infection. The presence of HSV 1 and/or 2 antibodies may indicate a primary or reactivated infection.

As your levels are high this suggest acute infection .

You should consult your dr for that please .

Let me know if you have further questions .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
