Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
This is most likely a contact dermatitis or an abrasion, and this is not herpes, as herpes would be quite painful.
So, you can try a hydrocortisone cream to help you out.

what about the white tiny bumps?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 7 years ago.
The tiny white bumps are most likely from irritation. If this was herpes they would be clear and quite painful.
