User avatar Herpes lesions are generally described as redness and irritation followed by slight swelling and blistering. Then they scab over and heal completely. An initial outbreak might take up to 20 days to heal but subsequently more likely up to 10 days.

Based on the typical, yours do not sound like herpes. However, if they do not go away on their own you should have them examined.

Take care.
