So i had a brief encounter of unprotected sex about 17 days ago. I have not experienced any burning, itching, swollen lymph nodes or what i would consider the typical symptoms of an std. However, right on the rim of my penis, it seems like a bump is forming, like a slight hardening of the rim. i haven't noticed any puss filled sores, or any open sores. I don't believe its part of a cluster but i can't be sure either. But i feel like this small little bump is just there. I have been waiting to see if it is actually going to become puss filled, but is this typical of a herpes bump or other std at all? Oh, and you can't even see the bump, i can barely feel it like under the skin in a little discolored part of the rim. What do you think?
