Genital Herpes: Treatment with antiviral drugs can help people who are bothered by genital herpes outbreaks stay symptom-free longer. These drugs can also reduce the severity and duration of symptoms when they do flare up. Drug therapy is not a cure, but it can make living with the condition easier.

Doubt herpes or STD: It's impossible to guess about the cause of this, but I agree this doesn't sound like herpes or any other STD. The large majority of genital skin problems aren't STDs.

Maybe: Very few conditions present as "blisters on a red patch", and most commonly it will be herpes. However, that "herpes" can be either caused by herpes simplex virus (hsv 1 or 2) that cause fever blisters and genital herpes, or by varicella zoster virus, which causes shingles. The latter will present usually as a painful rash.
Herpes Blister: Yes. Herpes breakouts start as blisters usually. But, not everyone exposed to herpes gets a break out. Many people are silently infected and silently contagious.
Yes and No: Once you have the varicella-zoster virus, like other herpes viruses it stays in your body for life. One episode of zoster does not mean that you are doomed to multiple episodes, but there is always the potential for recurrence. There is evidence to suggest that this frequency of recurrence can be mitigated through use of the vz vaccine.

Non-infectious causes can include fixed drug reaction and behcet's. A visit to the doctor can help determine the cause and appropriate treatment.
Can't say: With the description you have given I cannot make a diagnosis. You need to see a physician.

Herpes: You can reactivate herpetic eruptions with trauma, but without seeing the lesion have no accurate way in which to answer your question. If this gets worse, suggest you see a doctor and have it examined.
