Herpes: Herpes is a viral infection of the skin. It always comes the first time from another person. Herpes on your penis could come from your penis contacting the virus in a woman's vagina, or a persons mouth or anus, or even their hand.

Not herpes: This isn't herpes. Herpes causes red bumps, blisters, pimples, or open sores over 1-2 weeks. Anything that looks the same after 1-2 days is never herpes. This might not be abnormal. I'm wondering about pearly penile papules or Fordyce spots. Google both and see how the photos compare with what you have. If any doubt or you're still concerned, see a doctor. ...Read more
