Infected follicles, ingrown or STD?

So I am switching jobs and I have medical check up scheduled, I haven't had any recently, so the paranoia of googling every symptom started with me, 2 days after searching I have less than 1 inch very small red dot not a bump on the side of my penis bottom doesn't heart at all, I have ingrown hair problem with my beard and also acne, always wearing tight boxer shorts, not that much sexually active, never paid for sex or involved in a high risk sex activity, after googling for hours if not days, I am confused as to if this is just an infected follicles an ingrown hair like what I get on my beard or an std syphilis or something, I read that STDs are like region based probability I am in Europe and never noticed anything on my partners like a similar red dot rash or anything, so I just need to clear up my mind a little bit before my medical check up so I thought of posting here.
