Outbreak without Blisters?

I just came off of an outbreak, wanst having any symptoms for about 2 days. I then went to see my BF and we had sex quite a bit for the next few days. Then I developed a lot of burning and itching, redness for the next couple of days. Is it possible that the sex just aggravated the herpes? Can herpes have such an outbreak without blisters involved?

Thanks in advance

Re: Outbreak without Blisters?

I have definitely heard of others saying that sex seems to occasionally bring on an OB. It could also just be irritated from the friction, especially if you don't see him all the time and you had a lot of sex in a short period of time. I know that if I don't have sex for awhile I definitely have to take it easy at first. Do you use any lube? I use lube no matter what, it's lovely and it helps avoid any sort of irritation.
About the OB with no blisters.... it's absolutely possible. You'll find a lot of people who don't get blisters at all. Herpes is so very strange, it manifests differently from person to person. Some people get blisters, some just a rash or redness. I personally usually get a row of red bumps on my bum that itch.
