In brief: Can be one or many
Herpes can show up as a single blister or multiple blisters.
It just depends on the extent of the disease and the individual. Usually the sore is painful, although sometimes it can just be itchy. If it is painless, however, it could be other possibilities like syphilis. In addition, herpes sores characteristically tend to recur in the same location.
