I was recently diagnosed with HSV-1, and I would like to know what these results mean. Thank you!

I was recently diagnosed with HSV-1. But on my test results it says positive and negative. And I would like to know what this means. I recently had the flu, but they were no cold sores at all. Could I have been misdiagnosed? I will really appreciate your response. Thank you!

Hi
Your test results mean you have HSV 1 but it’s not acute so may not experience any symptoms
Sorry
Good Luck

Hi..
Can you tell me that how many days after the symptoms are these tests done?
What is your age and sex?
Are you sexually active?
