Hi,

Are there other symptoms present? Try to avoid scratching to prevent secondary infection.
Initial symptoms of genital herpes may include itching or pain, followed by sores that appear a few hours to a few days later. The sores, which may appear on the vagina,  start out as red bumps that soon turn into red, watery blisters.  The sores may open up, ooze fluid or bleed, and then heal within the next 2 to 4 weeks. Flu-like symptoms including fever, headache, and swollen lymph nodes may also be observed. Definite diagnosis is through direct clinical examination and blood test for the herpes antibodies. Have this examined by your gynecologist for proper management.

Take care and keep us posted.
