Genital Herpes caused by Herpes Simplex Virus Type II (HSV II), usually affects the surface of the genital area. Symptoms include itchiness, pain, and small blisters ranging from pinhead size to green bean size that soon ruptures in 3 to 4 days, leaving erosions with translucent fluid. The lesions often heal within 10 days if there are no other infections. Some patients may also suffer from generalised symptoms such as fever, malaise, muscle ache, joint pain and appearance of lymph glands in the groin. These symptoms may subside after 2-3 weeks time. Although the skin surface would appear to be healed, the disease can remain latent in the nerve ganglion. Around 50-80% of patients are liable to relapse, though the condition will be minor comparing to the first time.
