Post Can herpes look like acne?

I do have problem with acne, mostly on my back. Lately I have been getting something in my pubic area. Not relly on the shaft or anything. It looks just like acne, gets a whitehead, can easily be popped etcetc. Sometimes he go away shoty afte but sometimes they leave a red mark for awhile. Could this be herpes? I am going to go get checked out to be safe, but I woud just like some opinions Thanks

It's hard to tell from your description. It might be, it might not be. Best to get yourself checked out as soon as possible, so that the doctor can see the symptoms before they heal too much to recognise.

Good luck.
