Thanks for the query.

Herpes does not present in the form of bumps.

He might have developed folliculitus.

These are deep bacterial infections.

Treatment is with antibiotics but the choice of antibiotics should be based on culture and sensitivity tests.

Another possibility is molluscum infection.

A photograph would have helped me in giving a closed diagnosis.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
