    HSV Testing Results

    How accurate is the IGG Herpselect test for HSV 1? I had a visual diagnosis 8 years ago by my doctor. After 16 weeks I was tested at Quest Diagnostics and the results were negative <.90. Since then I have taken the same test 5-6 times and continue to get negative results. I have been told that this test is not accurate as the antibodies won't show up in they are not replicating at that time. I tried to get the DNA PCR test but it is not offered in my state. I don't know what to do but I really want to know. I don't get symptoms often but on occasion do get the itching tingling in the shorts region. Any thoughts?
