Herpes or razorburn? red irritation on my bikini line.

Patient : I don't wear underwear unclean, i know, and recently i have some chaffing type or razor burn like red, irrated bumps on my bikini line. i do shave my privates. but this irratation is really red, on both sides of my privates, right on the crease of my bikini line. it's also lightly secreting a fluid, which i've never noticed before. it doesn't itch, and only hurts when it rubs against my clothing or thighs. i'm worried. before i spend money on a visit to my doctor, should i be worried that this is herpes?
