Depends on type!: If referring to hsv1 or hsv2 or even varicella zoster virus (hhv3) will cause a rash. All three can cause either or both pain and itching. Fever, malaise can be present as well- but not everyone gets all of these at once. A visit to your doctor is most appropriate if you think you have herpes.
