Description

The test is looking for evidence of infection by herpes simplex virus, a common sexually transmitted disease that causes small blisters (vesicles) on the mouth or genitals. The blisters seen around the oral cavity and in the mouth are commonly called “cold sores” and are evidence of active herpes infection. This test identifies the presence of the virus in a sample from a blister, sore or urine to diagnose an acute herpes infection.
