About last December, I noticed a cluster of small reddish bumps that began to form on the shaft of my penis. They began to grow in size slowly, and they appeared to be globe-shaped, fleshy, and pinkish. Eventually I noticed pus build up underneath the spheres of these little bumps. The pus wasn't at the very top, but rather underneath the skin a little, so it was not possible to pop. After about a week or so, I squeezed one, and managed to get the pus out. It took about 2-3 weeks for them to heal by themselves and go away (towards the end, slight itching occurred once ina while).
Prior to this break out, I had sex with my girlfriend (I was a virgin at the time), and when she also had this breakout around the same time as myself, she said her doctor believed it was HPV. I was skeptical though because I've never heard of HPV causing "reddish bump with a white dot."
I've done a lot of reading on this virus, and it seems it causes long-lasting, hard/fleshy, pus-less warts that take a long time to go away. I compared pictures of HPV warts to the fleshy-pimple like bumps I had. I don't think I have HPV, but rather acquired some type of bacterial infection. Can HPV cause these types of little bumps with pus in them (that go away within 3 weeks)? I'm not even sure, I'd really like some closure on the matter though.
I haven't had an occurrence since then.
