I took a blood test to see if I had it. They tested to see if I had the antibodies of HSV-1 and HSV-2, since it is a viral and your body does develop antibodies for it. I hope that helps. : .There is no test that I know of unless you are broke out .... the virus lives in the Dorsal nerve of the spine and can only be tested when the virus is present to get skin or fluid from the sores... when the sores are gone there are no scars left in its place to ever show that it was ever there ... that is why it is show hard to detect that a person has it or has ever had it
: You can go to your Health Clinic and they will update you on any new information available.. they are great for all .....Good luck
: : I know people can have herpes and not know it. They don't have breakouts. Is there a blood test to detect herpes. Thanks
