Painful blister: No matter it is herpes simplex or herpes zoster. The herpes always start from sporadic blisters and then ruptured later on. And they are paiful.

Yes: Warts are caused by hpv (human papilloma virus) and can cause thickened growths...Warts. These can be treated by freezing, applying medicines, or even cutting them out. Herpes is also a virus but causes painful blisters and ulcers. There are antiviral meds to help with herpes, but usually neither of these are completely "curable.".

Probably not: Genital herpes cause enough pain. Wait until the blisters are gone. Hitting a herpes blister with a rasor will really be painful.
