herpes???????

I noticed a few pimple looking things on my chest. i squeezed one and puss came out like from a whitehead. three other ones were close by but they were scabbed over. I then noticed i had a reddish bump on my upper groin. i had a week shaved before so i dont know if its in ingrown hair.  its not painful but im freaking out. i read that website grace had recommended but that didnt help me out in diagnosing. Is herpes painful? do they look like zits or ingrown hairs? please help im losing my mind. would herpes be on your chest arms etc?

my exposure was something completely different i was stabbed with a bloody knife. and ffought a guy who was all bloody and i either broke his nose or knocked some teeth out but he sit alot of blood into my eyes nose and mouth. we wresteld and his blood got into the wound im more worried about hiv but with all this weird bumps popping up etc im worried about everything. m just curious about the timeline for herpes. Im really freaked out about hiv but after seeing these bumps on my chest and one on my groin and all these bumps on my arms which could be bug bites. im just a mess . worried about everything. hence my handle basketcase. thanks

There's a type of herpes that wrestlers get on their skin but this doesn't apply  to you. I thought you had a sexual encounter of some kind for your exposure. The herpesviruses are not bloodborne.

im still curious though on how long after an exposure would it take for a primary outbreak.
