Is Itching After A Herpes Outbreak A Sign Of Healing? How Long Does Itching Last?

Answer

Itching is merely a symptom that can occur before during or even after an outbreak - I would not associate it with "healing." The healing rate of the symptoms - pain, itching active lesions - is variable person to person.
