The first herpes outbreak typically causes an itchy or painful inflammation of the skin, which manifests itself as blisters or sores. If you notice any rash or blisters around your genitals, you need to consult a doctor and find the cause of your symptoms.
During the first attack, the early symptoms of genital herpes include the following:
- Fever and flu-like symptoms.
- Nausea or feeling sick.
- Muscle aches.
- Painful urination.
- Tingling, burning or itching sensation in the area where blisters will appear.

Is HSV2 Contagious?
The herpes simplex virus, or herpes, is categorized into 2 types: herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).
HSV-1 is mainly transmitted by oral-to-oral contact to cause oral herpes (which can include symptoms known as “cold sores”), but can also cause genital herpes.
HSV-2 is a sexually transmitted infection that causes genital herpes.
HSV-2 is most contagious during an outbreak of sores, but can also be transmitted when no symptoms are felt or visible.
