it does not look like STD
it looks and sounds like superficial skin infection ( viral/ bacterial ) called folliculitis
you can use topical bactroban cream for 2,3 days.
if this develops in to vesicels, get more painful, and or penile discharge , i would recommend paying a visit to your primary doctor and getting tested for herpes
at this point, i stongly think this would go away on its own in another 4-5 days.
you are most welcome.
yes, it looks benign.

yes , you are right, folliculits means infection of hair follicle.
i meant to say this is small infection of skin like folliculiitis.
folliculits can occur on penile skin,near the base, as there are hair follicles ( small pors, even though there is no hair there)
in either case, this would most likely go away in 4-5 days,
if you have more symptoms as mentioned above, you should see your primary doctor.
otherwise i would not worry at this point.
