What is the herpes simplex virus? How do Type I and II differentiate?
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a family of viruses that infect humans. HSV is spread through close contact (skin-to-skin or sexual contact) with a person actively shedding the virus. Two types of HSV exist; Type I, affects the mouth primarily, specifically:
- Oral area
- Tongue and gingiva
The other type of Herpes is Type II, which is associated with genital herpes infections.
How do you test for herpes simplex virus?
To test for herpes simplex virus, you will be asked to provide a blood or urine sample. A swab is also sometimes used to collect fluid from a blister, sore, or area of infection.
How long after infection does it take for herpes to show up on a test?
It can take 2 to 20 days to develop symptoms, and the testing window for herpes is around 1-3 months after exposure.
