If by blisters you mean actual fluid-filled bubbles, then this may indeed be herpes.  A culture at the time the blisters reappear would be definitive.  Otherwise, a herpes 2 IgG test can be very decisive either way--a negative test means you don't have it, a positive one means you do.  For reliable tests, see www.herpesdiagnosis.com.

Take care.
