Expert Q & A Answers About genital herpes
Recently, I’ve noticed a hard, tiny bump below the skin on the top of my penis. When I move the skin around, the bump stays in place. I’m 17 and I’ve never been sexually active. Do you think I might have an STD?
We used a condom at first, but then we stopped. That’s when I noticed this red rash and skin-colored bumps. What are they?
My girlfriend and I recently started having sex. When we had sex for the first time, I used a condom and everything was fine. Then, she got on the pill and we stopped using a condom. That’s when I developed a red rash and many skin-colored bumps on the shaft, scrotum and anus that are uncomfortable, but not painful. I don’t feel sick and I don’t have any trouble peeing. Is this an allergic reaction to her birth control or something that her body makes? Or, do I have an STD?
Could you give me some ideas as to what these small, skin-colored lumps might be between my vagina and anus?
I discovered some small, skin-colored lumps in between my vagina and anus. They don’t hurt or itch, and my boyfriend seems to be okay. Could you give me any ideas as to what this could be? (I've been with my boyfriend for nearly five months and we haven’t slept with anyone else.)
I’m a 31-year-old male who has been stupid and had unprotected sex. Now I have a few red spots on my penis and the skin seems to be rubbing off. When I touch the spots, it stings a little. Also, one side of my penis is slightly swollen. Can you please let me know what you think it is?

It doesn’t hurt, but it is itchy. I don’t know what it is...could it be genital warts? How should I treat it?
We’ve been having sex for over a year, but now I’ve noticed some red and itchy bumps...do I have an STD?
I’ve been having sex with my wife for the last year without any problems. But last week, I found something that looks like a pimple on my penis. It’s red and itchy. It went away after a few days, but after we had sex tonight, I found two more bumps on the other side of my penis. Do I have an STD?
I’m worried that I might have herpes. Can you tell me more about when to get tested?
I’m getting tested for herpes and waiting for the results, but I have no idea what to look for when they come back. What do the test results for herpes look like? How will I know if I have herpes, or not?
I have some red spots at the base of my penis...is that a place where herpes can show up?
