Q: Does Herpes have an odor?

I'm waiting for my test results to come back for herpes.  I have all the symptoms of an outbreak so I've pretty much convinced myself that I have it.  There is one thing though that makes me question whether it's herpes or not.  Most things that I've read describe herpes as having a clear odorless liquid.  But my lesions have a brownish/yellowish liquid which has a very foul odor.  So I'm wondering if this is an uncommon symptom of herpes, or could it be a different but similar condition?
