it might be an infected hair folicle, though herpes cannot be totally ruled out yet.

It's probably just an ingrown hair. Take a washcloth and wet it with as hot as you can stand water but don't burn yourself. Hold the dampened washcloth over the pimple repeat this several times and it will bring it to a head and soften it enough to free the hair. Clean the area and apply a dab of Neosporin or similar ointment. It should be gone in a few days.
