Genital herpes?: Genital herpes usually appear as one or more blisters or sores on or around the genitals, mouth, or anus. These blisters usually break & leave painful sores, which will resolve on there own, but can also be treated with medication. One can carry the virus but not know it, as well. See your doc & discuss your sxs & sexual history candidly. S/he can dx herpes based on hx, exam, or test. Good luck!
