In brief: Abscess

This superficial infection is not uncommon, more frequent in diabetics and will need an antibiotic for treatment, has nothing to do with sexual activity.

Our primary protection from bacterial infections (& all cancers) is our immune system. Anti (against) bio (all life) tics (things) are poisons which most humans tolerate (up to point) but are toxic to some bacteria/fungus. No antibiotics kill everything & all only kill those bacteria sensitive, leaving behind/selecting-out all the bacteria which are resistant, big problem & bacteria evolve faster.

In brief: Skin glands plugged,

not draining, can result in bacterial infections within the material within the gland which is trapped; thus the pus (white blood cells attracted to area to eat the bacteria, etc.
). If a cyst drains, no guarantee the drainage will be complete & heal back as was before. Our bodies constantly teardown&rebuild based on previously existing structures, a complex ongoing hierarchy: http://goo.gl/Blh6rW.

In brief: Wait and watch

What you described may have been folliculitis, that is inflammation of hair follicle.
Keep the are clean and dry and it should heal by itself. In case other cysts develop, or the first one does not show progression to healing, it would be time to see a doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine
