To answer your question.

Most people never know they caught herpes since their immune system fights it off and they don't ever have an outbreak.

If you want to know if you were ever exposed, then there is an antibody blood test.

If you have an outbreak, it would be small blisters, which break open and form painful ulcers.

These can be swabbed for the lab to confirm herpes.
