Brief Answer:
Observe only for now!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for following up.

I will suggest that you observe only at this time. This doesn't sound like a sexually transmitted infection. It is probably and infected hair follicle and this is not a major issue to be worried about.

I wish you well. If anything else comes up, document with an image and share with me for further review and insights.
