Symptoms of genital herpes vary from person to person. It is possible to
have genital herpes for years before noticing an outbreak. Some people may have
no symptoms - but they can still spread herpes! Sometimes only very mild sores
appear, but are mistaken for an insect bite or other skin problems. If you have
HIV, a genital herpes infection can be worse.
Some people have severe symptoms of genital herpes, such as many painful blisters and sores. An initial outbreak of genital herpes usually brings about symptoms within
two weeks of having sexual contact with an infected person and can last from
two to three weeks.
Finally, while there is no guaranteed method of preventing the recurrence of
herpes outbreaks, here are some tips to help relieve pain and discomfort. Read Ten Ways to
