little white bumps at the base of my ...

User Profile
Ok,so I started noticing a few weeks ago 2 or 3 little white bumps at the base of my pubic region. They resemble alot like a pimple which is what i passed it off as at first, but I know they're not, I now notice I have about 7 or 8. They don't itch, burn or anything, but it's really started to freak me out. I started doing tons of research and I'm concerned it's genital Herpes, although I have none symptons I read about like itching, burning, and additional affect like sore legs, fever, headaches etc. But some of the pictures posted resemble it. I also looked up molluscum and It looks alot like this as well. I researched ingrown hair follices too and agian, looks identical. But the increasing spread of bumps leads me to believe that this is not the case. I'm VERY concerned it's Herpes, please help. I popped a couple of them out of curiosity and a little bump feel still remains and all it did was bleed. My last sexual encounter was about..2 months now and it was unprotected.
