penis zit question

Hey Doc here is what I need to know I have not been sexually active in over 1 year but have been to a few massage parlours and had some hand and body to genital contact in the last few months. About 6 weeks ago i noticed a small zit about the size of a pin head with a white head on it I just left it alone it dissapered in 2 -3 days not at all painful just stressful, than about 4 weeks ago agian i noticed the same thing and went to a doctor and had it tested for herpees (herpes) and it returned negative
once agin this week i have the same symptoms 1 small tiny zit very hard to see there is a hair comming out of this zit, I need to know if i should have any worries regarding herpees (herpes) for this matter. and also why all of a sudden is this occuring about 3 times in 6 weeks.

Not sure, but it doesn't sound at all like herpes.  Sometimes pores in the area just get blocked.  No particular reason.  No significance either.  I'd ignore them ,eave them alone, etc., and they should go away.

Take care.

If there are no active cold sore-type lesions, the risk from the kind of activities you mention would be very low.
