Small red spots with black/pinhole center on penis (Glans and Shaft)
Forgive me, I have posted this question on the regular forms but wanted to get professional advice.
A few years ago I had a breakout of some kind, on two separate occasions in which they were pretty close together, of a cluster of small red spots with a black center maybe a day or two after sex. Almost looked like thorns within these red dots or just a black pinhole. I even recall an odor along with this breakout. They did itch slightly but not very painful at all. I want to say that I had a hard time urinating (with no pain) some days prior to these spots appearing. These spots would start to heal and turn into more of a flat, round, shiny, flesh colored circle then disappear all together on their own. I have not had anything like this since (2 years now). I think where the answer may lie is that my girlfriend chronically had bacterial vaginosis.
I cannot recall the actual time frame of the results but I did test for HSV-2 shortly after the break out and the test did come back negative. The physician that saw me didn't do a swab and also was not sure what the break out was after doing a quick exam.
Does this at all sound like herpes? A reaction from the BV? Friction from sex?
Not sure if anyone is going to respond to this but I did see my primary care doctor today and after explaining this he said that my "outbreak" was probably molluscum contagiosum and that it didn't sound like herpes.
