The herpes virus is caused by oral contact with the virus, usually in childhood.
There are two types of herpes –

  • Simplex Virus 2 is known as Genital Herpes and is caused by having sex with an infected person
  • The Herpes Simplex Virus I/II test measures the body’s immune response to the virus with exceptional accuracy
