Post EBV and CMV

I was recently diagnosed with active versions of both of them (Epstein-Barr and Cytomegolo Virus).

Is there anything dangerous about having these viruses? I read that most people get both of them (although not at the same time) some time during their life.

If you are a healthy adult, then these can live within your system without necessarily causing you any symptoms at all. You may not even realise unless you have some labs done which come back positive.

If you are immunosuppressed in any way, either with HIV or meds for a transplant of any kind, then you can have symptoms which can then be serious and need treatment.

Hope this helps?
