Is there a possibility that it could be herpes ?

I have seen the images of what genital herpes is supposed to look like and it looks like small cluster of warts or bumps. I have this one bump around my pubic (not genital) area. It does NOT look anything like GH. It's more-so under the skin and i cant tell it's there unless I touch it. It IS fairly large. Is there a possibility that it could be herpes ? It seems like a standard hair bump that has not come to a "core" or "head" yet.

I had unprotected sex about 9 days ago and I am terrified of contracting herpes I felt like i had the flu a few days ago had a fever and stomach pains, there were no symptoms down there though. Fever went away but i still have terrible stomach pains and indigestion Im stressing out way too much but when i checked down there i noticed two small red bumps on the outside of my labia, they dont hurt to the touch but they are there and have been there for about a day. They are slighly irritated. If these were herpes sores they would hurt right? Could this just be normal irritation?

I have a rash in random places on my body. Around my breast and sporadically on my torso. A few spots on my back and now I noticed between my butt cheeks? I ve had shingles in the past so this DOES NOT look like that. I took my valtrex just in case out of concern. Any thoughts on this rash? I have a diaper rash cream and I m getting ready to take a bleach bath. I don t have a primary care right now, but could see my OB if you think I need a prescription cream.
