curious and slightly scared

Hello, i have a problem. It all started about 3 years ago. I noticed for some reason, i hadlight red patches on the shaft of my penis, and they were slightly discomforting. They healed and i didnt have any problemsfor about a year and a half. Then got them again except they started to peel. Those healed as well andnow about 2 weeks ago i started gettingthe patches again except now they form raised bumps that are soft to the touch, almost like a pimple would feel under the skin.they are getting very uncomfortable because they itch and i dont know what's going on. Do you have any suggestions of what it might be? I looked online and symptoms point to herpes but id like to get some suggestions before i go get checked so i know what to look for.

these could be herpes, a fungal infection, irritation or any number of things. best to be seen and get a proper exam while you have symptoms.

hav you ever been tested for herpes to know your status?
