Herpes?: It sounds like this could be a cold sore, which is typically caused by the herpes simplex I virus. Note that this is not the std-form of herpes, which is generally herpes simplex ii and causes genital herpes. Anti-viral medicines can help. If this is a frequent occurrence, see your pcp for an evaluation.

Have your doctor: Take a look. May be a cyst underneath that was infected. If that's the case, it may become infected again, so it's best to have it properly diagnosed. You can also apply warm compresses to the area, rather than trying to pop it.

Can't tell without: Examining it. Sounds like a recurrent sebaceous cyst, or epidermal inclusion cyst. Simply popping it will not remove the sac that continues to produce the sebum (the white stuff), so a tiny local anesthesia operation may be needed. See your family doctor, dermatologist, or plastic surgeon.

Pimple: Warm compresses to aid in its own natural healing. Popping it will only make it more red and angry and also risk spreading the bacteria of the pimple. You can also dry it a bit by blotting gently with an alcohol pad.

Possible abcess: It sounds very suspicious for an access forming down there, even though it hasn't come to a head yet. Do some warm compresses on the area and get into the doctor tomorrow to get it looked at and on to therapy if needed. Don't wait too long as these can get nasty quickly.. ...

Correct: This was not a cold sore. They don't have puss in them. It may have been a blocked oil duct of some kind. Either way, as long as it doesn't show any signs of infection, it's not dangerous for you. Hope it gets better!
