    You might have HSV1 down there but it’s uncommon. in order to be HSV2, you must’ve felt some sort of pain when they burst but if you was applying cortisone cream around the same area and time, this might have made it more pleasant and not notice so much of discomfort.  Remember the first outbreak is the worst as they say. And blisters from HSV1/2 move in clusters

      Hi George. 

      This is the second Outbreak I notice at least in 4 month.   The first was in front of the penile but i was thinking its because of friction ! but once I saw this i was very suspect.

      I experienced no pain what soever ! it became black and healed in less than 4 days !

      The scab i get on my lips is usually yellowish .. but what i got down there is black  like any normal cut.

      kindly advise.

    You can test for HSV 2 (make sure you do IGG test, not IGM). Best time for test to be accurate is 16 weeks post exposure due to viral load or they can also swab lesions. 

    I looked at the pictures and they did not seem to have the classic herpes rash, so sorry I can’t help more.
