On the female depending on the type. I have HSV-1 Genital. So, open sores, also called lesions. Itching and burning constantly and most of all just an overall discomfort. For me it was accepting the fact that there is no cure but know one thing, after the first outbreak it gets better. Hope that helps.

Hi Robin,


I know you asked this question a long time ago, but I was wondering if you have a diagnosis and treatment option that you would like to share.  Genital herpes generally begins with small, painful blisters that are filled with clear or slightly pink fluid.  Only a doctor can make the final determination and diagnosis however.


We do have a great deal of information on the Herpes virus if you are still interested:
