Several poss causes: There are several possible causes for painful bumps in your genital area, including folliculitis, heat rash, contact dermatitis, genital warts, genital herpes, and others. Given your hx of unprotected sex, enlarged lymph nodes, and use of acyclovir, genital herpes is a possibility. See a health care provider while bumps are still present to help confirm diagnosis and provide treatment.
