Can a single tiny reddish bump on penis that ended up as a white spot under the skin be herpes or just something else? no ulcer or pain/itching.

Pearly penis papules: Sometimes we look at our bodies in a new light, and notice things that we have never seen before, and we think they are not normal. This often happens with the genital area, partly because it is not easy to compare with other people. Pearly penile papules are small lumps, about 1–2 mm across. They look like pimples and are all roughly the same size and shape.
