Suspicious of herpes

I had shaved my pubic hair in groin area, and same time , I had unprotected oral sex with a lady, now, after few days, I realize little bumps on my groin area only. Is not like a blister, Is more like a bump, that nothing is coming out of it. Also, with one of the bump i squeezed the bump, some blood came out,  then the area got worse by scratching, now is a little red patch looking with some dots not even consider as bumps on it ( is more like irritated skin). Do you think, I might be infected with herpes? What do i need to do?

I honestly can't say without seeing it what this might be or what the chances are that it might be herpes.  I think you've done the right thing in getting both the swab test and blood antibody test.  Let me know if you have any questions about those results, OK?

This sounds pretty typical for folliculitis, an irritation of the hair follicle.  It doesn't sound consistent with herpes.  But if you are still uncertain of how it is, then you should have a provider check it out.  If it forms into blisters, get in more quickly, OK?

I checked with doctor it was like a round patch that was irritated, which he said is a fungas, then I used the medicine for the fungas, the medicine made the first layer of skin completely to come off, then now there is no skin on it ( is a round ugly looking scar ), and it kinda hurt. now still I have some red bumps on my groin, that they hurt ( no extremely ), but every bump has a hair coming out of it. then some I squeezed some white puss came out, and some clear puss came out. So, I went back to see him, the doctor is color blind, so he said the fungas is infected, so he put me on antibiotic, he said the red bump might be herpes now, but there is no blister on them when I streched my skin on my groin there is some kinda white head on them but not all of them, so I did a bool test today, I have to wait 4 days for result, and everything is on groin only, so, what are the chances of herpes?

You should know the results by now, right?
