There are a couple of different ways that herpes can develop when you have a herpes outbreak. The first is one that a lot of us get: cold sores. These are oral herpes outbreak. Cold sores can be cold sores of their own right, but if you have oral herpes, these could be the sign of an outbreak.

However, there is also a genital strain of herpes that infects the genital areas of the body. Signs of this kind of outbreak often appear down there, or even on the thighs and butt cheeks. Any area around the genitals can be infected when this herpes appears. Signs can also appear incredibly mild, being mistaken for a razor burn, an ingrown hair, or even “jock itch”.
