Herpes around the mouth caused by a very common virus that can cause cold sores. You can even have the virus in your body without getting any cold sores. Avoid kissing, kissing or having oral sex when you or someone else has cold sores with blisters.
Cold sores can be transferred so you get genital herpes.
The most common symptom of herpes is that you get cold sores on the lips or around the mouth.
Then the skin

Most infected as children. It usually takes between a few days and a few weeks after you have been infected until you get the first symptoms.
If you get herpes symptoms, you are most contagious the first day. When the blisters after a few days have started to dry up and a scab has formed, it is less likely to infect.
You can have a herpes infection without having any symptoms. Then you can still be contagious without knowing it.
There are two types of herpes virus
There are two types of the virus. Type 1 caused sooner almost only blisters around the mouth. Today, type 1 a common cause also genital herpes. Type 2 primarily causes genital herpes.
Herpes can be transmitted to other parts of the body such as the eyes.
The herpes virus remains in the body after you got sick the first time, even when the symptoms have passed.
Most adult Swedes have or have ever had herpes type 1. About one third have recurrent outbreaks. New outbreaks can occur if you have an infection in the body, such as a cold. Symptoms may sometimes come back if you are stressed, associated with sun exposure or during menstruation. Sometimes the symptoms but there is no obvious cause.
If you are already infected with herpes will not back that you come in contact with another person's mouth sores, for example, by kissing someone who has an active herpes outbreak.
The older you get the more rare outbreaks usually occur.
How can I prevent herpes around the mouth?
- To prevent the herpes virus from spreading you should especially avoid kissing and kissing if you or the other person has herpes symptoms.

Herpes Test Colde Sores (HSV1) Home Test Kit
home screening for herpes simplex HSV1 virus in whole-blood sample.
Tell me about the Herpes Test Simplex (HSV-1) Antibody Test.
The HSV-1 Rapid Test Device detects antibodies to HSV-1 through visual interpretation of color development. Recombinant antigens of HSV-1 and anti-human Iantibodies are used to detect the specific antibodies in the human whole blood samples. When a sample is added to the sample well on the test panel, HSV-1 antibodies, if present, will bind to the anti-human conjugated to colored particles on the sample pad. As the specimen migrates along the strip by capillary action and interacts with reagents on the membrane, the complex will be captured by recombinant HSV-1 antigens immobilized at the detection zone. Excess colored particle are captured at the internal control zone.
The presence of a red band in the test region (T) indicates a positive result for the particular antibodies, while its absence indicates a negative result. A red band at the control region (C) serves as a procedural control, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking is working.
What kind of sample is required?
A simple blood sample collect in the privacy of your home.
What do the Cold Sores HSV1 test results mean?
Herpes HSV-1 Antibodies Present (positive): This means you have a herpes colde sores HSV1 infection, cold sores, which are small and somewhat painful blisters that usually show up on or around a person’s lips,
Herpes colde sores antibodies can take up to ten days to develop after primary infection with the virus. If you believe you have been exposed, but have no symptoms, you should therefore wait at least two weeks before getting tested, you may also want to go for a repeat test after 6 months if you do not undergo regular screening.
Limitations of the test
The HSV-1 Rapid Test Device is for home in vitro diagnostic use, and should only be used for the qualitative detection of antibodies to HSV-1. The color intensity in a positive band should not be evaluated as “quantitative or semi-quantitative”.
Failure to follow the TEST PROCEDURE and RESULT INTERPRETATION may adversely affect test performance and/or invalidate the test result.
Results obtained with this assay, particularly in the case of weak test lines that are difficult to interpret should be used in conjunction with other clinical information available to the physician.
A high dose “hook effect” may occur where the color intensity of test band decreases as the concentration of antibodies increases. If a “hook effect” is suspected, dilution of specimens may increase color intensity of the test band.
Clinical sensitivity and specificity The HSV-1 Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) has been evaluated with specimens obtained from a population of symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. A commercial HSV-1 EIA test was used as comparison. The overall agreement both tests is 90%.
Precision Intra-Assay Within-run precision has been determined by using 10 replicates of negative and positive specimens. The specimens were correctly identified >99% of the time. Inter-Assay Between-run precision has been determined by 10 independent assays on the negative and positive specimens.Three different lots of the HSV-1 Rapid Test Device (Whole Blood) have been tested using these specimens. The specimens were correctly identified >99% of the time.
