Genital herpes – Definition

Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection. It causes small, painful, fluid-filled blisters. These blisters break open and leave an indented sore or ulcer. The blisters can be found on the genitals, buttocks, or thighs. However, they can also spread to other parts of the body (eg, mouth, face, or eyes).

About 16% of people aged 14-49 years have herpes simplex type 2 genital infection.
