...: Most people with genital herpes have no symptoms or mild non-specific symptoms that are not enough to cause them alarm. The “classic” symptoms are blisters or ulcers on the genitals, rectum or mouth. These can take 2-4 weeks to heal. The first episode can be accompanied by fever, headache and body aches. Repeated outbreaks are common. There is treatment but no cure. Latex condoms decrease risk.
