Genital herpes infections are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV)

Symptoms of herpes simplex virus infection include watery blisters in the skin or mucous membranes of the mouth, lips or genitals. Sometimes, the viruses cause very mild or atypical symptoms during outbreaks. Herpes simplex virus (HSV)-2 is periodically shed in the human genital tract, most often asymptomatically, and most sexual transmissions occur during asymptomatic shedding.
