Its different for everyone, some people will have a paper cut type of sore, others will have one or two, others will have clusters.
If you think you may have it you should have a culture done within the first 24-48 hrs to get an accurate result. You can also request an IgG Herpes type specific blood test. If the encounter was recent you should wait 3-4 months so that your body has enough time to build up the antibodies.

Now, when I have an outbreak, it is usually just one or two pus filled pimples......they hang around about a week then they're gone I take no medicine, but I do take Lysine and this only happens once a year......I have HSV-1 (genital)
