Is the big sore on scrotum with white tip a herpes lesion?

Do herpes lesions/blisters ever have a white head? I had a big sore on my scrotum that seemed to appear overnight and it had a white tip, the sore burst as soon as I touched it to see if it was soft or hard. First a little bit of white pus came out but then no more, after that it drained clear. Also inside the burst sore was a white dot. It produced a green/yellowish scab and healed within about a week, but left behind like a circular red scar .

Hi.Most probably,it could be infection of hair follicle of scrotum .Herpes lesions doesn't have white head.
Another possibility is a Calcified sebaceous cyst where White dot is seen,but the swelling will be hard.Sometimes Sinus will be on the Scrotum which occurs due to Syphilis.If there is discharging sinus on the Scrotum,Get investigated.all the best.
