Does herpes smell?


No, herpes itself does not have a distinctive odor. However, herpes lesions or blisters may sometimes become infected with bacteria, which can cause an unpleasant odor. Additionally, the use of certain medications to treat herpes, such as topical ointments or creams, may have a noticeable smell. It is important to seek medical attention if you have any concerns about herpes or other infections.
