Penis infections

I have been HSV2 positive for 14 years but a series of other problems began about 2 years ago. First areas on the head of my penis began to turn white, maybe chronic yeast infection? Now after having unprotected sex I have small blister like lesions on the head of my penis that form circles about 1/16 of an inch around. Doctors give me ointments but that keeps coming back. Some say thats herpes but I know my body and breakouts. It's not herpes. Related...unrelated...any ideas?

The white color on the head of the penis may be vitiligo, a harmless loss of pigment common in the area.  A dermatologist can use a Wood's light (ultraviolet) to tell if this is so.  The "blisterlike" lesions are, I agree, not likely to be herpes and more likely to be secondary to friction, but again, a doctor would need to see them and perhaps culture them to tell for sure.

Take care.

Hi. 4 days ago I noticed a small red pimple-like bump on the very tip of my penis, just under the opening in the very center. It had a dark, scab-like center and grew a little in size. Last night I noticed a small red dot on the shaft, on the foreskin, on the top of my penis. Both dots appeard after having unprotected sex. The dot are both ring-like, but no discharge. Not bubbly or clustered. I have been putting a triple antibiotic on the one on the tip, and have not yet done anything to the other one. I have an appt. with my GP in 3 days, and have recently requested, and recevied, an STD screen. We are to discuss the results during the appt. but he won't disclose the results over the phone. From the pictures I have seen, this does not look like genital warts, but I am freaking out nonetheless. Please help. Thank you so much.
