Thanks for your query and a clear picture.
The appearance is classical of herpes simplex.
You can certainly get this confirmed by a consultation with a Dermatologist.
Since this comes after a reduced resistance of body and is a self=limiting problem along with no specific treatment, the Doctor might have said you ''it is nothing''.
I hope this clears your doubts.
