Genital herpes: Genital herpes outbreaks are characterized by blistering as well as being somewhat painful. The lesions are multiple as a rule, but blistering and oozing of serum rather than pus are tell tale clues to diagnosis.

Here's info: http://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/STDFact-herpes.htm If you are worried, have an exam - use a condom to protect both yourself and others. Self Dx by photos might be mistaken anyway, so it's not helpful. Read, learn, have an exam. It's fairly common so they'll know how to assist you. Unfortunately, it's not curable, but very treatable. Don't fret. Best wishes!
