The test detects both HSV 1 and 2 at the same time and can differentiate them.

Our clinics offer this rapid test whereby results are available by the next following day.

Thus facilitating prompt and appropriate treatment.

What is Herpes Simplex Virus?

Traditionally, HSV 1 (Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1) is commonly known as oral herpes while HSV 2 (Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2) causes genital herpes. However, due to changing sexual practices this is no longer true. 

You can still get HSV 2 in the mouth via oral sex and similarly, you can get HSV 1 in the genitalia through oral sex.

Both HSV 1 and HSV 2 causes painful blisters and ulcers. Usually, there are more than 1 blister or ulcers. In some people, the symptoms can be very mild and they may not think they have been infected with herpes as they may have mistaken it for pimples, or the blisters or ulcers last for a just few days before disappearing.

However, that does not mean that the virus is no longer present.

Similar to the chickenpox virus, it can hide in your body for a period of time with no symptoms and can cause flare ups later on when your immune system is low.

How is this Rapid Herpes Simplex Virus Test different from other tests?

Blood test for HSV only detects the antibodies to the virus and may not reflect that the current symptoms is due to HSV as in majority of cases, once a person has been infected with HSV 1/2, the antibodies may remain positive for life. The Rapid HSV test offered by Dr Tan and Partners detects for the DNA of the HSV 1/2 virus using PCR which is accurate and rapid.
