herpes or ingrown hair

I'm a 25 year old male. 2 weeks after shaving I noticed a red bump on shaft of penis. Sensitive to touch. I tried popping it thinking it was a pimple of some sort to no avail. I see what appears to be a hair    Trying to find its way out. I'm freaking out here thinking it's a herpe sore. Any help would be appreciated.I will try to include a picture as my.profile.

We dont look at pictures but herpes are not under the skin bumps but open topical blister or razor type irritations. If your sexually active you might want to take a herpes test for the protection of future partners but from what your describing does not appear as a herpes outbreak but only testing would confirm this.
