Test Details & Preparation


  • Herpes Testing is done to screen for or diagnose infection with the herpes simplex virus (HSV).

  • Herpes Testing is done if you have symptoms of an infection with HSV, such as blisters in the genital area, or symptoms of viral meningitis if you have certain risk factors.

  • A swab or scraping from a blister or sore in the infected area or a blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm for meningitis or encephalitis, a sample of cerebrospinal fluid.

  • No preparation is required for herpes testing.

  • A positive herpes simplex culture or HSV DNA test from a vesicle scraping indicates an active HSV-1 or HSV-2 infection.

  • A negative test result indicates that the herpes simplex virus was not isolated but does not definitely rule out the presence of virus.

  • The presence of HSV-1 or HSV-2 IgM antibodies indicates an active or recent infection. HSV-1 or HSV-2 IgG antibodies indicate a previous infection.
