It could be herpes, but the only way you'll know is to get it checked by a doctor and get some testing done.

Given that it's been there at least a few days, culturing it may not give accurate results, but ask your doctor to do a PCR swab on it. That's more sensitive than a regular culture.

It could also be many other things, but only a doctor will be able to tell you for sure.
