Is it herpes? So I have this one red bump

Patient : Is it herpes? So I have this one red bump looking thing on my penile shaft. I just got word that a female I had sex with over 9months ago had herpes and I didn't use a condom. The bump is in the middle of the shaft. It appeared maybe a 2months or so ago. It's just one bump and it hasn't really gone away. I have popped it and nothing really came out of it besides a bit of blood. Maybe because I was trying really hard to pop it. Could it quite possibly be a ingrown hair? I do use a razor to shave down there. Please let me know. I'm having a panic attack about it
