do genital herpes blisters/ sores alwats scab / crust over?

or can they clear up without scabbing over? I'm currently waiting for culture test results to find out if the sores I have are herpes or not. I've been taking valtrex (just incase it is genital herpes) and my sores seem to be healing and becoming less painful. Only thing I've noticed, is that they have not turned to scabs or crusted over, even though they no longer hurt, or feel sore. Is this a possible outcome? or could this mean I do not have herpes, since my sores aren't scabbing or crusting over, rather, just disappearing?

It is not necessary for herpes to scab. For me it is an angry red spot that goes away. For some people it just looks like little cuts that go away. So don't assume it it not herpes because it is not a scabbing over blister.

Mine dont scab either. they just rupture then go away after being sore for a few days. I think because the area is so moist around the area that it doesnt need to scab over to heal in some cases.
