Bumps are not herpes. Herpes will be little sores that ulcerate causing a scab and will follow a 7 day cycle say. Unchanging bumps are almost never herpes.

You need to follow up with a HSV blood test 12 weeks after the exposure to be conclusive in a negative result.

I can't see the pics. Permanent bumps are not herpes. It sound more like fordyce spots to me based on what you describe.

Consult your doctor and request a swab of the sores.

You can still have herpes even if you test negative that's why they recommend you get tested a couple months later when your body has built enough antibodies, and herpes does start with itching which is very mild and that's why symptoms go unnoticed I wish you good luck tomorrow and I hope you don't have herpes but even if you do just remember you're not alone :)
