Thanks for the query.

No, it does not seem to be herpes.

Do you have fever?
Are the lesions painful, tender and associated with itching?
Are there any vesicles?

Reply back with more information.

Thanks for reply.

These features are not suggestive of herpes infection.
Such papules/nodules can occur due to stress, hyperacidity or vitamin deficiency.

Multivitamin supplements and antacids will help to resolve the symptoms.

Thank you.
