Hi and welcome to HCM.Thanks for the query.
it doesnt sound like herpes. it is more likely some bacterial skin infection and it should be treated by surgical incision or by topical antibiotics. Also, some dermatologic diseases can cause such lesions and you may need more detailed dermatologic examination.
Wish you good health. Regards
