Valtrex leaves the body very quickly and should be gone within about 3-4 hours.

There is currently no cure for herpes but Valtrex can be taken when a herpes patient begins to feel the symptoms that signal an outbreak is imminent. Doctors and scientists are now working on a vaccine against herpes that is thought to be available in 3-5 years time. There was a vaccine trailed by GlaxoSmithKline in 2002 which appeared to be successful in immunizing females but it was never released on the market and did not immunize males.
Herpes is an extremely infectious virus and once a person has caught it, they will continue to have outbreaks potentially for the rest of their life. There are two common forms of herpes and these are oral herpes and genital herpes. The virus causes small but painful blisters to form in the infected area which will usually last between 2 and 21 days. During this time, the person can be extremely infectious and the virus is easily spread. It is unknown what causes the virus to emerge in the form of blisters and it could happen every month, every year or even less. Laboratory testing is usually required to confirm that a person is infected with the herpes virus, although most people are familiar with cold sores and over the counter treatment is usually bought without a consultation from a doctor.
