What are the symptoms of Genital Herpes?
Some people will not experience symptoms, or they will be very mild; it usually takes several days after contact with the virus for any symptoms to become apparent, although in some people it can take much longer.
The symptoms of a Genital Herpes episode can include:
- Small blisters in the anal or genital area, which burst to leave small red sores which can be painful
- Pain when urinating
- Stinging, tingling, or itching in the genital area
- General feelings of malaise; flu-like symptom
