Could this itchy bump on my lower back be a herpe ?

I had a itchy bump on my lower back, right were my pants rest. It s been there for a little over two weeks. I itched it enough and it scabbed over and then it healed. It started itching again and when I itched it, it sort of popped and a whitish discharge came out. I was recently told that someone I had sex with might have herpes and I should get tested. Could that have been a herpe?
