Boil or herpes?

This started off as small bump. It wasn't visible for a while, but I could feel it with my fingers. I do shave, so I'm just curious if this is caused by an ingrown hair or if it's just a regular boil/pimple. I've had unprotected sex with my boyfriend twice (about 3 weeks ago), and he says he's clean.

Does this look like herpes or just a boil? This is the only "symptom" I've seen or experienced so far.

  • Looks like an ingrown hair. Herpes is usually several "zit like" bumps that ooze and itch.
