Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus. Genital herpes is spread by vaginal, anal and oral sex. Genital herpes sores typically appear as blisters on or around the genitals, rectum or mouth. The blisters then break and can leave painful sores that may a few days to heal. This is sometimes caused “an outbreak” and can be precipitated by stress or other illness.
