2 to 7 days: Will take less than a wk to hepes simplex ii infection , once get infected stays in the body for ever , anti viral drug Acyclovir will not cure but will help in acute attacks ( break outs ). If you are infected like 30 million american , you must inform your partner , use of condoms will reduce the incidence bur will not prevent 100% , almost half million new cases are added in usa.
