Brief Answer:
This is not typical of any STD. Report progress to me within 5days!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed this information fully and this is not suggestive of any specific STD presentation. I will suggest that you rather monitor only at this this time. This macula has XXXXXXX most likely provoked an aggravated by the manipulation of the pimple which led to soft tissue injury and resultant desquamation. This will follow it natural course and resolve spontaneously without the need for any specific medical intervention.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
