Follicultis: It sounds more like folliculitis, which is an infection of the hair follicles and may need a course of antibiotics to resolve. Herpes generally appears more like crusted painful lesions but it is impossible to say without physically seeing you.

Herpes: These do not sound like herpetic lesions, but the only way in which to be sure is to have them seen by a doctor familiar with these. This cannot be done on the internet, need history and exam. Best wishes.
