Recurrent blisters: Happen with herpes in most cases, if no active lesions it is more difficult to say. Blood tests can show new or previous exposure. HSV Type 1 lesions are usually less severe, (cold sores), very common. HSV Type 2 lesions are more severe and numerous, particularly with first outbreak. Anti viral medication can help decrease recurrences.
