This image depicts a close view of a female’s perineum, revealing what had been an outbreak of herpes genitalis, which had manifested as blistering around the vaginal introitus due to the herpes simplex 2 (HSV-2) virus, otherwise referred to as genital herpes. Sexually transmitted herpes simplex HSV-2, typically causes one or more blisters to form on, or around the genitals or rectum, which break, leaving tender ulcers that may take 2 to 4-weeks to heal after making their initial appearance.
