Can herpes appear as cuts ?

Maybe, but unlikely: In the genital area, the main cause of several "cut like" sores is yeast infection, especially if there is more widespread itching or redness than just the sores themselves. Recurrent herpes (not the initial infection) sometimes appears like superficial cuts, but usually only one or two of them. Since you're obviously uncertain, see a doctor ASAP, within 1-2 days for accurate diagnosis.
