Moles or herpes?

Patient

Q: The last time I went to my doctor I asked her about bumps on my vaginal area, she looked at it and said it was genital herpes. So when I went home I did some research and I topple a picture of the area (because of the location I couldn't see otherwise) and to me the bumps look nothing like the herpes I saw, they look more like moles. They have been there a few months and I asked my last sexual partner if he had it or if the,last female he was with had it and both said no. Could it be possible that my doctor was mistaken and they are moles? If so should I be worried that they are there?
