STD: Local symptoms from a herpes simplex 2 infection usually is seen 2 to 12 days after exposure and consists of a cluster of lesions that look like blisters. The lesions can appear on the penis, anus, labia or cervix and they can spread, coalesce followed by crusting over. The fluid in the lesions is very contagious. Some people contract herpes simplex 2 without any symptoms. Get tested to know.
