Herpes is an STD: Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection, that occurs in both men and women. Many people who have it don't know they have it because they may have few to absent symptoms. Symptoms are different for different people, but many people describe a tingling, burning, or itchy sensation with or without little blisters. Symptoms can be very mild or very severe. It is a very common virus.
