Cluster of red hard bumps on upper left arm. History of herpes. Is this similar ?

I have a cluster of red bumps on my upper left arm , they are hard and don t itch that much. My arm is sore but that could be from holding a phone, ipad or carrying my 2 year old around. I have a history of herpes (2 I believe), but rarely have breakouts and they are usually on my right hip. Could the bumps on my arm be herpes, its seems simular.

Most probably,you are talking about Herpes Zoster.
It not only occurs on hip,but also on any part of the body.
You should take Antiviral drug like Acyclovir with the Consultation of Dermatologist.It reduces Pain,prevent complications and shorten the course of disease.
