Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
No I don't think this is herpes - herpes presents as small blisters and nearly always within 14 days of sexual contact in the first episode. This looks like a small skin cut possibly related to skin dryness or friction which then has some secondary bacterial infection (the yellowish crusting is usually caused by bacterial infection). I would suggest keeping the area dry and clean and applying Bacitracin ointment twice a day on it for 7-10 days. That should take care of the problem. During this time avoid masturbation and sex to give the penile skin its best chance to recover.
NOTE: Bacitracin ointment is available over the counter without a prescription.
Please feel free to ask if you have any queries. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
Yes that is what usually happens
Yes Herpes blisters, especially when they are occurring for the first time, usually have some discomfort associated with them, often frank pain. You would have noticed the blisters.
