The most obvious sign of genital herpes is blisters on the genitals, anus, thighs, and bottom. These blisters will eventually burst to leave red, open sores.

Other symptoms include: 

  • Tingling, burning, or itching around the genitals 
  • Cracked or red areas around the infected area without tingling or itching 
  • Pain when you use the toilet 
  • Unusual vaginal discharge in women  
  • Flu-like symptoms such as a fever, swollen lymph nodes, and fatigue 

If you have any of these symptoms, contact your GP or a sexual health clinic.
