Hi, Dr. Stan here to help you today. The pictures you sent could be herpes. How long have you had it? Do you have any pain or burning sensation?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No pain or burning sensations. I've had it for 2 days..I shaved 2 days ago and drank a margarita with salt on the rim and then this bump formed looked maybe like a pimple tried to pop it but nothing came out...

Herpes usually begins as a burning sensation followed by a blister. Since you shaved, it could be irritation from the shaving and the salt on the rim of the glass. From what you describe, herpes is not what you have.
