Genital Herpes or Molluscum Contagiosum (MC)

I'm a 32 year old male, and have been sexually active (protected) with multiple partners in the last 2 years. I recently noticed some single (not clusters) of bumps / lesions / papules in my pubic area (about 25 in #, with 1 bump that recently came up on my penis). I have no symptoms apart from these, they don't hurt or I have had no problems peeing etc. No swollen lymph glands, no symptoms of flu etc. Tea tree oil seems to have helped immensely as the bumps are starting to dry out in about 3-4 days of application. Is this herpes or Molluscum Contagiosum?
