Visualization: Utis are usually associated with bladder pain/burning, with no external tender lesions. Genital herpes is characterized classically by surface, very tender ulcers, where the pain is localized. Hope this helps!

See a physician: If herpes or UTI is suspected see a physician. Only careful history and exam can differentiate.
