Hello I am a 21 year old male. I have not been sexual active for over a year and I have only had sexual intercourse with 3 different females, all of which I was in a relationship at the time of intercourse. About 2 years ago after getting together with my 3rd girIfriend I noticed a red pub on the head of my penis. This bump accured approximetly 1 1/2 to 2 months after our first sexual intercourse.It did not hurt, itch or cause any discomfort at all and went away with in that same week. I had been camping and fourwheeling in the woods that week so I just assumed it was chaffing or an insect bite. However the bump has re-occured twice in the past 2 years, not in the exact same place but the bumps are always on the head of my penis. In both instances I was away from home, the first time swimming in a river, and this last time which occured in July 2012 I was swimming in the ocean. The July occurence is the one thatI am worried about because it's was not just one bump it was several smaller red bumps, but again they did not itch or hurt at all.
Also I frequently masterbate 1 to 2 times a day and sometimes I ejaculate in my boxers and do not always have time to clean my self up.
typically herpes lesions are itchy and/or painful. definitely cover your bases with a type specific herpes igg blood test to see what your status is and try to be seen the next time you have this again to get it looked at for better answers.
have you had your gardasil shots for hpv yet since you are only 21?
