Thanks for posting your query.

There are two possibilities here. If there is pain in the blisters, it can be Herpes. If they are painless blisters, then it may be Syphilis.

Would you mind uploading a picture of the lesion? If no, please upload the image by yourself at the right side of the query page; utilize it so that I can answer your queries better.

It is worth getting a STD screening done.

If none of these is present, then it can be local congestion of the blood vessels in the scrotum. You need not do anything about it.

Awaiting your response.
