Brief Answer:
You seem to have milium

Detailed Answer:

Welcome back,

It seems that you are having milium.

It is not STD.

It is a benign condition. A milium is a small, raised bump on the skin. It is a type of tiny skin cyst filled with a protein called keratin.

Milia are harmless and, in most cases, they will eventually clear by themselves. But, in some people, milia can persist for months or sometimes longer.

Milia may be removed using a fine needle and then squeezing, or pricking, out the contents. No anaesthetic is needed. However, it is not recommended to squeeze or try to treat milia yourself. This can lead to skin damage and scarring or infection.

So, you consult dermatologist. He might remove it with needle. Or may do electrocautery under local anaesthesia.

I hope you got my answer. Still,any may ask.

So how sure are you on it not being an std?

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

My opinion is that you might have milium after going through history and seeing photo.

Milium is a minute cyst. It is not infection. So, how can it be STD?

Actual diagnosis may be done after consulting dermatologist personally. So, my advice is that you consult dermatologist. The lesion may be other than milium. Then the mode of treatment may be changed.
