If a specific location where a red bump on my penis is never itches, burns, crusts over, etc, can it still be herpes? Usually itches all over.

In brief: Not herpes

Herpes doesn't behave at all like this.
Neither does any other STD. Maybe a localized allergy or other dermatitis. See a doctor. If the "red bump" is present only now and then, talk to your doctor about arranging an immediate visit (without an advance appointment) next time it appears.
