thanks for the query.

Vesicles on the genital area makes one think of conditions like Herpes simplex, syphilis or herpes zoster.

Herpes simplex is a viral infection that present usually with blister lesions occurring in multiple on the same area, and are red, painful, fluid-filled blisters that break open and crust over. It is sexually transmissible and once contracted, it does not get cured but antivirals can be used to reduce the frequency of occurrence, transmission and symptoms.

Syphilis unlike Herpes is caused by a bacteria and usually present with just a single blister around the junction between the glans penis and the shaft although multiple blisters can occur. Syphilis blisters are painless and usually hard.

Common laboratory test can be used to diagnosed the above two infections. Unlike herpes, syphilis can be treated with antibiotics and the patient declared cured.

You should consider discussing in detail with your Doctor to do tests in this direction of syphilis, herpes and other possible sexually transmissible infections such as condyloma etc if you are sexually active.

Hope this answers your query. If you have further query, i will be ready to help. If you do not have further query, you could close the discussion and rate the answer.
