I’m re-reading parts of this. Let me clarify a couple of things. When the area on upper chin started to feel strange, there was a hair popping out from the boarder of the small discolored area. After I squeezed the area I did pull the hair out.
I’m also thinking it’s possibly not a cold sore due to the location. It seems like an odd place to have an initial outbreak.
Lastly, when I popped the zit and there was a exposed open, bloody area. It was directly on the scrotum.
Hope this information helps answer my questions. Once again thank you in advance for any assistance!
I think it's a pimple. Sometimes, a pimple is really just a pimple.
So first, STOP popping these things. Don't ever pop pimples, or bumps or blisters. This essentially ruins the chances that a doctor can test it, can introduce other bacteria or germs into it and cause infection, and can cause scarring. It can also cause something to spread.
The chin is an unusual place to get a herpes sore - not impossible, but not common. Since this would be your primary, which as you likely know, means a new herpes infections with no other pre-existing hsv1 or 2 infection, it's more likely that it would be more than a pimple-like bump on your chin, or a pimple-like bump on your scrotum.
Also, herpes doesn't bleed. If you popped a herpes blister - which, ouch - it would be more like popping a blister on your foot than popping a pimple.
Sharing a drink can transmit herpes, but it's really not that efficient of a way. You're far more likely to get a cold or the flu (and we are in that season, so maybe don't do that anymore) by sharing drinks than herpes.
If you get another one of these spots, don't do anything to it at all, and let a doc see it. I'd be very surprised if it's herpes.
