question about herpes
Sep 17, 2006
I sent the question about hsv2. the test was done at the Mayo Medical Laboratories and it says positive for herpes simplex virus 2 IgG for herpes simplex virus antibodies.
Can you tell me if this will speed the replication of the hiv virus?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Again, it means exposure to this virus sometime in the past. Unlikely it will affect HIV replication unless there is an active infection ongoing with HSV-2.
