Brief Answer: Even to me it looks like pimple. Detailed Answer: Hello, Herpes blisters generally come in clusters and are filled with clear fluid.They are also associated with pain and irritation.This looks more like a pimple.I would suggest to wait and watch to see if this resolves on its own.If other lesions crop up or symptoms develop then only you will need to get this tested. Hope this helps regards.

Brief Answer: This doesn't look like herpes. Detailed Answer: I will stick to possibility of a simple pimple or blocked skin gland.It doesn't look like herpes blister.There is no surrounding inflammation as well. Herpes lesions appear in cluster and are associated with pain.I will suggest a primary visit to your doctor, this will help relieve your anxiety.If you are comfortable you can wait for few more days.But I dont see any reason to be concerned even if it persists.Regards.
