Two of the most common herpesvirus family members are known as human herpesvirus 1 and 2 (HHV-1 and HHV-2). They’re more commonly known as Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2). They are spread when an infected person is producing and shedding the virus. HSV-1 produces mostly cold sores, and HSV-2 produces genital herpes, but both are contagious.
This herpes test involves a fingerprick test to extract blood. It assumes you are a medical professional and already have a fingertip blood collection device (e.g. safety lancet). Therefore, it is not safe for at-home use.
