This image depicts a close view of a male patient’s genitalia, highlighting the morphologic details exhibited by a primary vesiculopapular herpes genitalis (HSV-2) outbreak on his glans penis, and penile shaft. When signs of herpes genitalis do occur, they typically appear as one or more blisters on, or around the genitals or rectum. The blisters break, leaving tender ulcerative sores that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur.
