Antibodies are part of the body's immune response to foreign bodies, or antigens. A foreign body can be anything from cat dander to a flu virus. For every antigen, there is a unique antibody, or immunoglobulin, that has a site to bind to a specific antigen, which is why flu shots and other inoculati…ons can work--once the immune system recognizes the bacteria or virus and creates an antibody, it remembers how to make those antibodies and can thus quarantine the pathogens and destroy them before they can spread and infect the body. Thus, without exposure to a herpes virus, either I or II, there would not be an appreciative amount of antibodies specific to herpes, or herpes antibodies, as the question phrases it. However, everyone has some of these antibodies, since the process of developing specific antibodies involves random mutations of genetic information to deduce what is needed to bind to the specific antigen. For clinical and diagnosing purposes, there exists is a cut-off point that determines if you have herpes or not. If you want to see what your antibody level is, there is a really neat site that has some great information as well as some testing options.

Guys can go together before the big game and get tested. Also college campus health offices and the public health nurse always have baskets of condoms for free if you need them.

Herpes is a viral infection of the skin caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of herpes: HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSV-1 usually causes infections of the mouth such as "cold sores" or "fever blisters" on the lips. Most of the time HSV-2 causes genital herpes. But, either type of herpe…s can cause an infection of the mouth or genitals. Herpes is spread by direct skin-to-skin contact with someone who is infected. You can get herpes from someone who has sores on his or her lips, skin or genitals. But, most of the time, herpes is spread when someone does not have any signs or symptoms. The herpes virus can still rub off a person's skin even when he or she has no sores that you can see. Remember: you can get herpes from someone who has no sores or symptoms and if you have herpes you can spread it even if you have no sores or symptoms. ( Full Answer )
