Probably folliculitis, not herpes. See your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and treatment advice.

Could be -- could also be a contact dermatitis, or a folliculitis, or one of several other (rarer) things. More information is needed. Better still, you should see your doctor or a dermatologist for a proper examination and appropriate treatment.
