Doctor :   Thanks for your question. No, it does not appear to be 'a herpes'. Without a physical examination, it is not easy to predict, but it looks to me like an allergy or a fungal infection. You can try some antihistamines for a couple of days and get some cortisone creams applied on it. If it does not work then a dermatological consultation will be a must. Hope it helps.
