In brief: Resistance &Exposure

Like any other viral (or bacterial ) infection the host has to be susceptible to the infection and the exposure must occur in a place that harbors the infections (mucous membranes for example) Some people develop antibodies to certain infectious agents and therefore when exposed never contract it.
Herpes lasts 7 to 14 days as a natural course.
