Photos & Pictures of Herpes Symptoms
This gallery of herpes photos has a range of pictures showing the different symptoms caused by the virus.
Photos below include genital herpes, cold sore, herpes zoster, herpes whitlow and 3D images. For extensive information and self-help tips (physical & mental) about the virus visit our Herpes Information library.
Many of these photographs represent the worst case scenario or are pictures that have been taken during the first primary outbreak (before the immune system has had a chance to develop an immune resistance).
An average herpes outbreak or a recurrence of genital herpes may look a lot less severe such as a small and simple cluster of blisters, or sometimes similar to a ‘paper cut’, mosquito bite or abrasion.
Herpes is not something to be scared of. For most people it is far more mild than it looks in many of these clinical photos.
