How long can herpes type 1 stay dormant before your first outbreak?

Herpes

Systemic
Recurrent herpetic outbreaks are usually shorter in duration (averaging 7 days), with less severe symptoms and are often preceded by a prodrome of itching or burning in the affected area. Systemic symptoms are usually absent. Most people diagnosed with a first episode of genital herpes can expect to have several (typically four or five) outbreaks (symptomatic recurrences) within a year.

How long can herpes virus stay dormant before initial outbreak?

Herpes simplex

Virus
If an acute initial outbreak is going to occur it will be within several days of acquisition of the virus. The virus will remain with you the rest of your life and may recur with outbreaks in an unpredictable fashion. Some never become symptomatic. Good luck.
