In brief: Blisters

Genital herpes is associated with a cluster of blisters that show in the genital area that eventually burst, releasing the virus and causing some pain, tenderness and redness at the site of the outbreak.
The out break will occur at the same site each time for the rest of the persons life. It is not curable because it is a virus. Medicines are available to help with the symptoms.
