Hello doctor,

Can you please interpret my test lab results? I only had an erotic massage a few weeks ago. I did these tests on my own just because of curiosity. The erotic massage was safe. No sex was involved. Just body to body touch. However, I am not sure what they mean.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and the reports attached (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Herpes 1 IgG positive indicates a history of herpes virus type 1 infection which is usually spread by oral contact and causes lesions in the facial region. Active lesions occur during periods of reduced immunity like other viral infections or sometimes spontaneously, rest of the time the virus remains dormant in the body.

I would advise you to visit your local dermatologist for a further clinical examination and any treatment if necessary. Positive VDRL (venereal disease research laboratory) test must be taken with caution as there is a good chance of false positive. As the associated TP (Treponema pallidum) antigen test is negative, it is unlikely that you have syphilis.

Though your HIV ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is negative, if you have a suspicion of the possibility of contact then I would advise a repeat testing after six months without any unprotected contact just to be sure.
