Herpes? Or something else...?

Hello! i noticed these little bumps around my genital region and at first i didd'nt really bother with them.. then they started to hurt and more came, eventually cysts started forming on the labia  so i went to the doctors, first diagnosis was folliculitis, so i got an ointment and 2-3 days into taking it i noticed a painful burning sensation when i applied it and it started to spread more, making groups and more cysts on the clitoris so i went to the doctors again and my regular doctor told me it looked like herpes, with a second opinion from another doctor.. some of the bumps are growing hairs and scabbing and i don't know whether its herpes or something else, someone please help in freaking out waiting for the results...!!
So 3 questions
1) Can Herpes sores grow hairs out of them?
2) Can it be Deep Folliculitis?
3) Do Herpes sores have dots in the middle of them?

usually herpes lesions do not have hairs in them.

did they do any testing for herpes if they suspect herpes?

not unusual to have reactions to topical antibiotics in the genital area either.  probably a good idea to switch to an oral antibiotic instead of a topical.
