Genital Herpes Sign Symptom

Genital Herpes Sign Symptom

A genital herpes sign symptom does not include vaginal discharge or a wart. HSV diagnostics include: HIV antibody serology, HSV Western blot analyses, HSV isolation in cell culture, HSV DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction enzyme analyses, cellular immunology studies and mucosal immunity studies. A viral culture on scrapped/aspirated lesion sample is poor (frequent false negatives); a negative cannot confirm no viral presence. A genital herpes sign symptom does not include vaginal discharge or a wart.

Genital Herpes Sign Symptom

  -  

Vaginal Discharge, Wart

A serology measures immune response antibodies against the virus. Although highly sensitive, it only measures exposure to HSV and not the active presence of the virus. A type specific test, glycoprotein G, is a relatively new FDA approved technology with accuracy comparable to the POCkit, HerpesSelect, and Western Blot technologies. HSV can be transmitted even when there are no visible symptoms or lesions. A genital herpes sign symptom does not include vaginal discharge or a wart.
