Usually herpes paresthesia starts before skin lesions are seen and lasts throughout the outbreak in recurrent hsv.
Total time ranges between 7-10 days. In a primary outbreak , the paresthesia can last longer.

In brief: < 3 months
Post herpetic neuralgia typically occurs after shingles (herpes zoster) in the same location as the rash.
The pain and burning associated with this condition usually last for several months, however, certain patients may have longer duration. Medications to relieve pain are available otc (capsaicin cream) and by prescription from your physician.
