Herpes has several different stages, however, herpes is probably mostly famous or infamous for the blisters they present. They are small, red, pus-filled blisters that when they have matured will crust over and fall off.
Often though there can be no to little symptoms. People and even doctors mistake redness and rashes as somthing other then herpes when in fact this is often the case. The blisters are the most famous but aren't as common as people think. It has been reported that when a flare up is coming on that it feels tingly or sometims burns but sometimes that's all that happens and it's mistaken for something else especially in women.
