Valacyclovir usually starts treating herpes symptoms as soon as its in your system, but can take several days to produce a noticeable improvement. It can take up to 10 days (or, in some cases, even longer) for herpes blisters to heal even with valacyclovir treatment.
How long does hsv2 take to clear up?
For most people, the blisters go away within one to two weeks. Although the outbreaks clear-up by themselves, the virus stays in the body. This means that people usually get blisters again – which is called having a recurrent outbreak. Outbreaks usually become shorter and less severe over time.
How can I make my HSV 2 outbreak go away faster?
Genital herpes cannot be cured. Antiviral medicine (acyclovir and related drugs) may relieve pain and discomfort and help the outbreak go away faster. It may also reduce the number of outbreaks.
Do HSV 2 outbreaks ever stop?
Herpes isnt deadly and it usually doesnt cause any serious health problems. While herpes outbreaks can be annoying and painful, the first flare-up is usually the worst. For many people, outbreaks happen less over time and may eventually stop completely.
