Hard to say: Hard to say without visualizing the lesions, but in general, genital herpes presents as a collection of small, very painful vesicles after exposure to someone else who also has herpes. If this accurately describes your problem, you need to see a doctor right away and get on some antiviral medication to help the lesions go away. Note, however, that you will never get rid of the virus.

Medical Diagnosis: Local symptoms from a Herpes simplex 2 infection are usually is seen 2 to 12 days after exposure & consists of a cluster of lesions that look like blisters. The lesions can appear on the penis, anus, labia or cervix & they can spread, coalesce followed by crusting over. The fluid in the lesions is very contagious. Some people contract Herpes Simplex 2 without symptoms.
Obtain medical diagnosis.
