Penis bump: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam.

Very big red bump in groin area. There is no head (like a pimple) been there for a week. What could it be and what should I do?
Cyst: Assuming the bump is painful, it is likely a cyst which is a fluid filled bump below the skin. It could also be an early abcess, which is an infected collection of pus below the skin, like a pimple but more painful and larger. Either can be a consequence of shaving in the genital region. Don't squeeze or pop it! I recommend seeing your doctor asap to see if it needs to be drained. ...Read more

A Bartholin's cyst is formed when a Bartholin's gland is blocked, causing a fluid-filled cyst to develop. A Bartholin's cyst is not an infection, although it can be caused by an infection, inflammation, or physical blockage (mucus or other impediment) to the Bartholin's ducts (tubes which lead from the glands to the vulva).

Likely staph: Unfortunately you sound like you are likely carrying staph. This will often occupy the moist mucus laden areas inside your nose & contaminate your fingers when you touch your face/nose.
