Herpes or allergic reaction?

So about two weeks ago, I had a sexual encounter with a close friend of mine. No penetration, but there was mutual masturbation and a number of potential transfers of bodily fluids (biting which broke the skin, deep kissing, etc). About 3-4 days ago, I noticed red spots/bumps around the left side of my hips where my pants usually rest (waistline?), that extend to my inner left thigh, about three or four inches from my groin. I've also noticed these bumps in my pubic hair. These little bumps itch like the dickens, and once touched/scratched/irritated, the affected area doesn't stop itching for several minutes. It's gotten to the point where I have the urge to scratch myself in public, which is quite embarrassing! I have recently purchased new boxer shorts, but I'm not sure if that would've caused it. I have not, to my knowledge, changed detergents, fabric softeners, or anything of the sort recently.

My question is: Could this be a potential first outbreak of herpes? Could it be an allergic reaction? Could a mosquito or some ants made their way into my pants and just went to town on my no-no region? I doubt it coiuld've been bug bites though; I've scratched them enough to where, if they were bug bites, they would've broken open and the healing process would've begun by now.
