Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Herpes sores present in a cluster and are really painful. Normally the sores are also accompanied by a rash involving the genitalia and the anus. It could be due to herpes provided you were exposed to the virus recently.
I will advise you to apply Mupirocin ointment on the bumps and take Tab. Claritin 10 mg once daily at bedtime for 3 days. If the bumps resolve then no further testing it required. Otherwise you can go ahead and get yourself tested.
Hope this was helpful,
