The Herpes test looks for the Herpes Simplex 1 (HSV-1) and Herpes Simplex 2 (HSV-2) virus using a blood sample.
Herpes is a viral infection transmitted by skin to skin contact. After the initial infection, HSV remains dormant in certain nerve cells of the affected area of the body for life. The dormant virus may reactivate and cause recurrences.
