Opening a book or a website, and without warning, seeing gruesome photographs of what a breakout looks like can be extremely upsetting, so you'll see no shocking photos of herpes here.

Genital herpes looks really no different than cold sores or shingles, depending on severity. the bottom photo represents what herpes looks like on inflamed, irritated skin, such as you would see in a case of shingles or genital herpes.
