Brief Answer:
A harmless non infectious spot.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the image attached with the query. The spot you have mentioned seems to be Fordyce's spot and it is an abnormally dilated blood vessel or due to an ectopic sebaceous gland.
It is a non infectious spot, subsides on its own after sometime and does not require any treatment.

If there is any associated pain, itching, discharge then other conditions as warts,ulcers,skin conditions can be thought of.

If there is development of any other symptom then consider visiting your Primary Physician for physical examination and evaluation.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
