No not herpes for sure. Could be molluscum contagiosum.
In most cases, if you have a healthy immune system, it will not be necessary to treat the lesions caused by molluscum contagiosum. The bumps will fade away without medical intervention.

Well condoms don’t prevent herpes transmission, but they help, cutting down the rate of transmission to 30%. Condoms are not totally effective because genital herpes only require skin-to-skin contact to spread, so the areas that the condom does not cover are still susceptible. Some people get herpes even though they’ve always used condoms! Nonetheless, using a condom is a great idea and reducing the chancing by almost a third is nothing to sneeze at. For example, if you’re a man who is not having an outbreak, you would have an 8% chance of giving it to your partner. But using a condom, you’d bring that number down.
