Is this herpes?

I had itching in my groin area. I trimmed the area with clippers and had unprotected sex a few days later. The groin area above my penis became itchy and red bumps formed which looked like blister and have scabbed over. I have had no pain just itching in groin,  no flu symptoms or muscle pain or weakness. No bumps or anything on penis or scrotum. Does this sound like herpes?? Thanks!

It sounds more like a fungal infection, infected hair follicles, or even an allergic reaction than herpes, but only a doctor will be able to tell you what this is for sure. I'd get it checked to make sure it isn't anything bacterial that needs an antibiotic.
