See your doctor.: You should have this checked by your doctor. It could just be a pimple which will go away on its own, but you should make sure it's not a genital wart.

Sebum: There is a benign common cyst like condition that comes and goes over time in men. These are known as Sebaceous cysts and they are self limiting, not infections and can be left alone.
