In brief: Might be herpes
Small cluster of bumps if they are filled with fluid and then later crust over may be herpes (hsv) or herpes zoster (shingles).
They are both viral conditions and are best diagnosed by a lab test at the doctors office. If this is the diagnosis, early treatment will help shorten the course.
