Herpes-type 2 (HSV-2) is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). Herpes Simplex Virus 2 (HSV-2) leads to skin infections, sores, and blisters more commonly in genitals. The infection usually has no symptoms but can cause painful blisters on the genitals. HSV-2 is also the primary cause of neonatal HSV. The Herpes Type 2 blood test is used to detect Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) type 2 infection. To be specific, this test does not necessarily determine the virus; instead, it identifies the antibodies that the body produces due to the infection. This test is also useful for the follow-up of pregnant women, who are not previously exposed to HSV-2 and are not protected against the virus.
