Red pimple like bumps on side of the penis

I am a 18 year old male. Two days ago I found four red pimple-like bumps on the side of my penis. Three of them were clustered together, and one of them was near the shaft. They appeared suddenly two days ago, and the day before they appeared I had an intense itch in my pubic area. I received unprotected oral sex two years ago from an ex girlfriend, who recently donated blood so I'm guessing she is clean. The red bumps are itchy only when my pubic area is dry. Thinking that it may be lice or mites in my pubic hair, I shaved around my penis today. The bumps are red, not painful, only itchy when dry, and do not have any openings. What can they be? I am afraid that I have genital herpes and that the symptoms are suddenly showing up after two years.

Thank you in advance.
