No, it doesn't sound like herpes, or any contagious or sexually-transmitted disease.  My best guess is that these are blocked follicles, of a type often seen under the arms.  I's put bacitracin or neosporin ointment on them once a day and otherwise leave them alone until you see your dermatologist.  

Take care.
