Herpes Prodrome

Would the symptoms of herpes prodrome (such as an intermittent stabbing sensation running down the penis) occur within 4 hours of possible exposure to the virus?

Many thanks

thank you, at what point may one expect to first experience symptoms following exposure? 48 hours minimum?

minimum. the average is about 5 1/2 days but it can occur anywhere from 2- 20 days after infection.

Pain 4 hours after sex just sounds like you had a good time ;)

You don't get prodromes from an initial infection. Prodromes are found only in recurrent infections...

thank you.
as in, would there just be an immediate visually noticable breakout within 2-20 days without preemptive pain etc?

yes you get prodrome like symptoms before the initial ob too ( aches, pains etc ).  

If you are still able to contact the person you were with - why not just ask them if they have herpes or have ever been tested for herpes?

Doctor Hansfield says only in Recurrent Infections do you get prodromes. Am I going to have to start a fight with him?? haha
