one white bump

About 5 month ago after some aggressive sex, I had a slight redness on the tender area under my head.  I also noticed a single white bump with some redness around it in the loose skin below.  The redness in the tender area went away on its own in a couple days but the white bump remained.  It tingles and the redness comes and goes.  I had a series of blood tests ran a month later and the only thing that turned up was Herpes type 1 which I had since I was 12.  (im 40 btw).  I had a prescription for Acyclavier so I started taking three a day for a couple weeks and no change was noted to the bump.  I have tried several creams and none have helped.  The bump does not stick up.  It does not scab and heal like herpes.  It has not changed in 5 months.  No other effects accept tingling.  What could this be.
