In brief: Yes

Yes, but two or three days is more the rule.
But lesions can occur in a day.

In brief: Herpes

Primary or initial genital herpes symptoms usually appear an average of 2-3 weeks after exposure to the virus infection; however it may be years before the first outbreak occurs.
The symptoms of a first initial outbreak of genital herpes usually appear 2 to 10 days the earliest and it varies to some. Many people who had the first primary outbreak are not aware of the outbreak.
