I had red inflammation and then what looks like acne at top of my bottom/base of tailbone which was never painful or that itchy. Would it be herpes?

In brief: Pilonidal cyst?

It is difficult to provide an opinion without examining the lesion.
It could be pilonidal cyst. See this site for information and discuss the issue with your doctor. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/pilonidal-cyst/ds00747.
