Herpes, Acne or ingrown hairs
I have red pimples with white heads on my pubic area that i can't decide which of the 3 above are they
i went to see a dermatologist and she said it's acne which i doubt because it's the first time i get it on the pubic area, i suffered with acne all my life but on my face
what's more confusing is that i shaved my pubic area few days before this happened and also i had a new sex partner after i shaved by a couple of days i'm really confused and i'm scared it might be herpes
please help me

Was the sex unprotected?

Where are the pimples exactly? Are they distinct red bumps with pus or clear fluid in them?

They sound like they are individual and distinct bumps, which is not a typical way in which herpes sores present themselves. Further, if they have white pus that you can see on your finger after you pop them, then these are not likely to be herpes.

It sounds as though it is just a shaving reaction which you can sometimes get,  it happens to some people even after getting waxed.  Don't try to pop them as it will only aggravate them.  Just leave them and they should clear up on there own within a week.  I am a beauty therapist, so I see this kind of reaction a lot.
