Small ulcers on penis shaft

Hello, I am a little worried as I have started to develop some ulcers on my penis shaft. I have recently tested negative in my last STI checkup and only have sex with one partner in a monogamous relationship, who has no similar symptoms on her vagina.

There are 5 ulcers, all on the shaft, about 1-2mm in diameter, most have popped and scabbed over. (see photo). They appear to be going away but I would like a diagnosis as I am currently outside my home country and I do not feel comfortable going to the doctor here where I do not speak the language. I recently (about 1 month ago) had another lump on my penis which was diagnosed as molluscum contagium but it went away after a few weeks.

Thank you very much
