Listed below are some conditions that are sometimes mistaken for herpes: 

  • Canker sores - (aphthous ulcers), usually occur inside the mouth and are gray with a distinct edge,  and usually heal within 10 to 14 days without treatment.

  • Bacterial or yeast infections are sometimes confused with genital herpes,  but do not usually produce blistering.

  • Impetigo is a highly infectious bacterial disease, more common among children often producing crusty blisters.

  • Syphilis, a bacterial infection,  causes chancres sometimes mistaken for blisters caused by genital herpes. Unlike genital herpes, Syphilis does not usually produce a cluster of blisters, and it usually responds well to antibiotics.

  • Molluscum contagiosum (molluscum) - like herpes, molluscum is a viral infection of the skin. Unlike herpes, molluscum produces lesions that are raised, with a central dimple.

For a better idea of what herpes is and how to recognize the virus you may like to research the symptoms of the herpes virus, and view and compare pictures of real-life herpes infections.

If you think that you may have an STD or STI you can visit the Sexually Transmitted Disease Resource Center for information, pictures and support relating to all the most common STDs.

If you suspect that you may have genital herpes, an infection caused by the herpes virus or another STD please contact your local health care provider for a professional diagnosis.
