A 26-year-old female asked:

With the first herpes outbreak, do you have the blisters and ulcers at the point of contact or anywhere in the genital region?

Contact point: It will usually be near the contact point but body fluids with the hsv virus in it can infect your skin in surrounding areas. Most guys will have herpes at the base the penis so women will commonly see out breaks on their labia. If treated within 2-3 days you might reduce symptoms. But get diagnosed first to see if it is herpes or something else.
