Sorry for the delay John. In that case it doesn't sound at all like herpes or a venereal wart. Most likely it's what's called a Fordyce spot which is a benign cyst that is not an infection and not cancerous. These usually disappear on their own in a few days to maybe two weeks. Since I can't see it it would be a good idea to have your doctor look but there's really no need for concern
