small bumps on penis

About 2 months ago after having protected sex with my girlfriend these small red bumps appeared on the glans of my penis. They were sore for like a day then after that they started drying up and just becoming dry spots and then went away and about three more just appeared and I cant figure out what it is. From pictures of std's it does not look like any of them it is not clustered just three random bumps. I can provide pictures if necessary. Please help!

Hello,
It can be due to allergic reaction, scabies or heat rash( less likely). If it is painful then herpes is an important possibility. Scabies is a contagious  skin infection caused by a parasite – the mite, which burrows under the host’s skin and causes intense allergic itching. It is transmitted from objects or beddings, but more with direct skin- to – skin contact.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
