Description: Blood Test for Herpes Simplex/Oral Herpes
Oral herpes is usually caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). When the virus is active, sufferers will break out in cold sores or fever blisters around, in, or on the mouth; it affects the lips, tongue, gums, roof of the mouth, and inside of the cheeks and the sores can be quite painful. Outbreaks may be triggered by stress, illnesses (such as colds and flu), excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes, and immune system deficiencies.
As with genital herpes, not all infected people show symptoms of the herpes virus; herpes symptoms might be evident from time to time and individuals who carry the virus can transmit it even though they show no symptoms at all. Oral herpes is highly contagious during breakout phases, and most scientists assume that it is contagious even when there is no sign of the virus. Our highly accurate blood test will deliver results you need to take action against an oral herpes flare-up.
