In brief: Herpes simplex

Herpes is typically described as a crop or cluster of vesicles.
The vesicles usually have a clear fluid in the center of the bump and are painful or itchy. They are most commonly on the lips or in the nose. It can also present in the genital region and it is contagious. See your dermatologist for proper diagnosis and management.
