Hey all.
17 years of age here.
Only had sex with one girl - lost virginity at age 15, after 11 months of dating.
Dated for 2 1/2 years total.
I took her virginity - she took mine (this is not to dismiss it can be an STD.. we really were both virgins)

Okay so, about 3-4 days ago, I noticed one small bump on the shaft of my penis. Wasn't huge - was wondering what the ***l it was. Yesterday I noticed, in addition to that, 3 smaller bumps on the head of my penis .. barely even go above surface of skin.. very small red bumps/spots. Im worried what this can be. First thing that comes to mine.. of course 'HERPES', i dont know how that would be possible though. My penis has yet to be inside another girl, her hand, her mouth, nothing. Furthest was making out, clothes on.

I did, however, pick up some sort of skin disorder, hopefully temporary - about a month ago. It started with a few itchy bumps by my thumb where it joins my wrist. Then over the course of a few days.. i had a bunch of tiny little bumps in between my fingers and over my hand. I used this benedryl spray stuff which didnt seem to work alot, but eventually the bumps cleared up, but i was still always itchy. I now get itchy alot on my arms, forearm, elbow, legs and even my azz lol. Now im just wondering if these bumps i got on my penis could be an aftereffect of this? Is it possible it could have spread to my penis from me touching it? I dont mind havng most conditions, but the thought of havin a disease on my penis frightens me - because most are everlasting, and I don't want to have troubles with future intimacy with girls because my penis isnt looking how it used to. Im hoping this is all just temporary, and I can wait it out. If i tell other people the first thing they do is say DUDE U GOT HERPES. Honestly everyone, Im not hiding any truth or beating around the bush - Sex::one girl::no others:: and we were both virgins. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any tips, suggestions, or just clearing up what this most likely is.


Another thing - bumps.. possibly acne? During the school year, etc.. I used to shower twice a day, everyday. When the summer hit and i was hangin out with girls.. atleast once a day. I wont lie - past 2-3 weeks ive been very lazy, staying up all night so I sleep all day.. missing out on showers. Past couple weeks.. 14 days.. maybe 5-6 of the days i skipped a shower because my schedule. Could this be it?

This is also my first case ever having anything looking wrong with my penis.

In no way do things look severe,, there arent tons of bumps/spotting. Its actually not alot at all. Howevr, its there. And i dont like it lol.

Thanks guys/girls.

  • Have you considered the possibility that these could be genital warts?Another possibility is that they could be from a fungal infection. Try an antifungal cream.If that doesn't work, I'd go to the doctor.

  • Hey the bumps on your penis sound like pearly penile papules. Do a google search on it and you will find heaps of information and there are pics with examples at the following linkhttp://images.google.co.uk/images?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENGB335&=&q=pearly%20penile%20papules&lr=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=viIf it is this then there is nothing to worry about, it is real common and you shouldnt worry about it. I started getting these bumps when I was about 15. I am now 28 and had never had any problems with partners or people thinking I have anything wrong with me. I have even seen ***n stars with these bumps. Like everything its always best to see a doctor to make sure there is nothing to worry about. Hope this was of some help

  • Hi,In response to your post, I would suggest the following:1) find out if your (ex?)/girlfriend has or has had any skin rashes or bumps anywhere.2) I wouldn't assume this is only an STD. You should go to a doctor to ask for an STD panel to rule everything out, but don't hang your hat on it.3) You could be dealing with bed bugs and need to change your sheets at least once a week and shower at least twice a week to keep your skin clean (skin is an organ so you have to note changes in your habits when your health changes). Bed Bugs are not about how clean you are, but vacuuming your matress, using a mattress cover, and changing your sheets can help cut down on keeping them as pets. Could even be spider bites.4) Think back over the last few weeks about any changes to your diet, use of topical creams or soaps, sun exposure, changes in vitamins like if you have started taking excessive (this is subjective based on what your body requires) amounts of vitamin D5) Have you taken benadryl or any other anti-inflammatory drug to see if that has helped = if your skin is sensitive putting benadryl cream or anything else localized on the skin could create a secondary skin reaction because the skin is already inflammed6) also consider allergies which can occur over time like laundry detergents (if you recently changed it or maybe didn't rinse the clothes enough this time), pets, or latex allergy = meaning if you were using condoms or latex gloves for the last two years and were fine but have developed an allergy over time since then you may notice a skin rash7) lastly have you had the bumps before = I assume you have had mumps, measles, chicken pox or the vaccines and would know if these bumps fit those profiles, but have you considered why you were showering twice a day during school like when you sweat alot or your skin is overly hot or cold or if you use a disposable razor you may have noted the bumpsI hope this helps and I wish you well.

  • So this is your first encounter to the grown up world and the consequences of sex--physical and emotional.Yes, absolutely you can pass warts on your hands to your penis and then also to your girlfriend...so...fyi...a mess..not HPV, but warts in the genitals in any event....do not tell ANYONE...best friends, etc...your mom or dad maybe...tell her you had warts on hands and think you need to see a doctor because you spread it and then go into details with doctor (not parents). Mother doesn't need to know. Another thing the doctor needs to rule out is a disease called Molloscum contagiosum. Your girlfriend may have had something and not known, even if a virgin--it's spread other ways, but, too, is a mess to clean up and she may need treatment if she is not pregnant...the bottom line is to get some instruction on the use of condom to save yourself grief. No, you need to pass on the sex until you have a diagnosis and no more things on the penis..does not sound like herpes because you would have a blister and then it would pop...do you? And for your information, people lie about diseases/sexual status, "oh I have nothing"...well, they don't know unless they've been screened for a dozen diseases. All because they can't see it or feel it doesn't mean that it just won't drive you insane with symptoms. Half the people with herpes don't know they have it or have no symptoms...a marjority won't give a **** and won't tell and then you have a small handful who don't want to hurt other people and always inform. Get to the doctor asap and then tell your mom something to get her out of the picture, like warts on your upper legs or something...rest assured, your girlfriend will be needing treatment, too, once your doctor figures it out.Could also be scabies on your hands; you'll find out soon..
