It will be good if you can send the photo of the rash . I can make out site and morphology.
Usually it may be due to abrasion or frictions.
This may be due to infection also.
Please send details of your intercourse history number of partners ,partner disease history if known etc.

You wash the area with warm water twice daily.
Please get back with details.

I took a picures as you asked doctor. My sexual history has been usually with condom use and protection with different partners in the past. I dont have information regarding any of my previous partner's disease history. This time however I had unprotected oral sex and the next day I found this tiny red spot on my pee hole with a strange tingling feeling. I wanted to understand more about this and I hope those pictures help in that regard.

Brief Answer:
Likely due to injury.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for follow up query.
As the lesion has appeared the next day,no other symptoms,it is a protected inter course, seeing morphology of lesion I would like to treat this as some bite or cuts due to injuries sustained may be during intercourse.
So You can relax.keep the wound clean.
Wash daily with warm water twice daily without fail.
Look for any new lesions or any lymph node enlargement in groin.
Do not have inter course preferably till it heals which may take some days.
See that no irritation occurs in the area.
You can use some topical antibiotics as precautions.
You can get back if any clarifications required else please close the discussion.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Two to Four weeks.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for follow up query.
healing depends on many factors like depth length or width, oxygen availability, cleanliness,secondary infection if any, diabetes status etc.
As the wound is slightly deeper,it may take longer but usually last by 3-4 weeks, if not secondarily infected or no further irritation to it.
it may heal even very faster as you are young and wound care is taken.
You can get back if you need any clarification else you can please close the discussion.
