Dermatology - Penile blemishs


I'm a 29 y/o Caucasian.

4 days ago I noticed a small white bump for the first time on my penile head.

See image here;


This morning after intercourse a red blemish appeared next my penile head opening.

See image here;


Any suggestions or explanation?

Hi, since herpes sores rarely appear on the head and are not white, what your describing is not suggestive of herpes at all.

Any idea what this is? Why it's happening?

There are things callled penal perlies that are similar to what your describing and then it got irritated from sex and caused a friction burn. See a doc if your concerned but it doesnot appear herpes related.
