Penile blisters: Painful ulcerative sores on the genital area in both male and female may be secondary to herpes type II, which is extremely communicative. There are antiviral medications to shorten the course of the discomfort, but get a test for herpes antibodies from your healthcare provider to be certain. "Thrush" is not usually painful.
