Description: Caption:
This was an outbreak of herpes genitalis, which had manifested as blistering on the underside of the penile shaft, just proximal to the corona of the glans, which was 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.
