Tender pus filled lump under the skin. Is it an ingrown hair or herpes?

a few weeks ago i noticed a hard lump under my skin along my panty line. i don t think it was really painful. within a week it came to a head (which was tender) and popped very easily. yellowish pus came out and the lump got smaller, but was still there. a few days later it came to another head and was easily popped again. this time it was almost gone, but still felt a little bump there. finally, it seemed to pop a third time (only a little pus came out this time) and then it went away. it s completely gone now. could this have been herpes or just an ingrown hair?
