Question about HSV Virus action

Does HSV retreat into the Nervous system? 

I'm unclear as to how this virus acts. 

Does the DNA expression create the virus particles, which then travel
a nerve and infect the normal skin cells? After which residual
particles retreat back into the ganglia ending the episode?

Or do all of the particles die off in the natural course of infection?
Ending the episode, but leaving the DNA form intact to respawn new
particles.

Thanks
