Wondering what this reflective (under light) lesion is next

Customer Question

Wondering what this reflective (under light) lesion is next to hair follicle. I think I’m just paranoid since getting a positive ureaplasma diagnosis but I just want peace of mind.

Ureaplasma is a bacterium that can be passed through sexual contact although it is not considered a classic STI or STD because of its low degree of pathogenicity

With just 1 lesion it's difficult to say. Have you had any problems with urination, fever
