Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. if your boyfriend have herpes you may get it if you have unprotected coitus. If you are not getting herpes despite coitus then he has no herpes and the bumps have been mistaken for herpes.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
