Brief Answer:
Could be herpes simplex

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to HCM
Your lesion is a small ulcer which looks like a broken vesicle.
It may be a herpes simplex Type 2.
You should get the HSV antibodies tested and take treatment if positive.
If possible show your lesion to a doctor.
Take care

Brief Answer:
Please don't panic. Confirm or exclude

Detailed Answer:
Well , don't panic.
I would advise a HSV test if you are not able to see a dermatologist.
If you are tested positive, then you should have your wife tested. If you are positive and she is negative, you should practice safe sex.
