When herpes does cause symptoms, the most common one is sores and blisters that show up on the parts of your body where the infection lives. Right before an outbreak, you might feel tingling, itching, or burning around the area where the sores will happen. You might also notice some small discolored or white bumps starting to form. Genital herpes sores can appear on your vaginavulvacervixpenisscrotum ballsbutt, anusor upper thighs. Genital herpes outbreaks usually look like a cluster of itchy or painful blisters filled with fluid.
They may be different sizes and appear in different places. The blisters break or turn into sores that bleed or ooze a whitish fluid. As the outbreak comes to an end, the herpes sores will scab over and eventually go away. The sores can take a week or more to heal. Symptoms of genital herpes look different at different stages of the outbreak — they usually start out mild but get worse as the outbreak goes on. You can also have flu-like symptoms during an outbreak, like a fever, chills, body aches, and swollen glands.
Herpes outbreaks look different in different people, and your next outbreak might look different from your last one. Your first genital herpes outbreak is usually the worst one. Most people get fewer outbreaks over time, and some people stop having them altogether.
Your nurse or doctor can give you herpes medicine to help prevent or treat outbreaks, and there are ointments that can make your sores heal faster and hurt less. Herpes sores can look a lot like other skin problems, like acne, contact dermatitis, or ingrown hairs. So the only way to know for sure if you have herpes is to see a nurse or doctor, like the ones at your local Planned Parenthood health center. So if you have genital herpes, try not to panic or feel too bad about it.
