herpes response to treatment

how lond does it take for herpes to start responding to treatment? CD4 COUNT BELOW 120OY

Treatment for routine herpes simplex with drugs like acyclovir usually results in fairly prompt improvement (several days). Herpes zoster responds perhaps a little slower while drug resistant or very severe herpes can be more difficult to treat with slower response time. KH
