Do I have herpes?

Patient : I have been getting small pimple like sores on my penis for a few months. My ex girlfriend and I used to have unprotected sex and we broke up because I found out she was cheating on me. These pimple like sores started a year into the relationship. These pimple/sores sometimes it appears in pairs and sometimes individually. There have been a few occasions where I have had close to ten of these bumps at one time. I estimate that I get this every month. Do I have herpes?
Symptoms:  itchiness at the initial stage, pain and soreness when the bumps are fully grown.
