Herpes Simplex Virus Screening (Type I & II)
Experiencing symptoms such as painful sores or
blisters on the mouth, face, or genitals and suspecting a herpes infection? A
Herpes Simplex Virus Screening (Type I & II) test can detect both types of
herpes viruses, HSV-1 and HSV-2, responsible for oral and genital herpes,
respectively. Timely medical evaluation is crucial for an accurate diagnosis
and appropriate management, especially when these symptoms persist or worsen.
This test aids in identifying the virus, allowing for proper treatment, symptom
control, and measures to reduce transmission to others or sexual partners.
