Is it possible that I contracted herpes from this one encounter?

So a few days ago, I met a woman online and we got together to play around a bit. She told me she was clean, but lied about a few other things so I am not sure if I can trust her. I didn't have oral, vaginal, or anal sex with her, she fingered herself, and touched my penis etc, I fingered her as well, and sucked on her breasts. A day or so after the encounter I was freaking out and started itching which I read was a possible sign of the herpes simplex virus, and it has me super anxious. I had a wound on the thumb of the hand I fingered her with which is one of the main reasons I am worried. Please help me!

First of all, stop reading herpes symptoms. If you do not understand the virus, you can't understand the context of the symptoms.
Now on to your specific situation. You had a zero risk encounter for herpes. You can relax and move forward as you had no risk.

I do have a general idea of the virus, but thank you for the reassurance Feelingundone.

I know they're not hsv. I would go see a walk in clinic or urgent care if you're concerned. When did they first pop up.

It popped up this morning. It was there when I woke up this morning, and I do not believe it was there when I went to bed last night. I may visit the local clinic to have it checked out, and hopefully that will soothe my mind, and give me the actual cause so that I can get it treated properly.
Herpes outbreaks typically last anywhere from one to three weeks.  I highly doubt that you were able to recover in less than a twenty-four hour period.  Especially if you feel this would be your first outbreak.  
I haven't recovered. The small bumps are still there.

This was a no risk encounter. You did not contract hsv from this. That I can assure you.

Then do you have any idea as to what these white bumps that have formed on the inside of my lips are? I am having a problem finding something to explain it, and my physician is out so I can't see him for a while.

DocFreeze:  You would have to have fluid exchange between your mucosal membranes.  You did not experience that based on your description and have little to no risk of contracting HSV.  Good luck, buddy!

Hey feelingundone... Sorry to bother you, but I noticed something today that looks sort of like HSV1. maybe it's nothing, but it's really bothering me, and I am sort of freaking out. I have a cluster of little white bumps on the right on the inside of the left, and right portion of my lips. I have read a bit more about the disease in my curiosity which had calmed my nerves seeing as I had experienced none of the other effects, but these appeared today and are starting to burn a little. Please help!
