My pimple on penis has been cured and treated by doctor, can I sex with my partner?

Probably yes. ..: Clinically, yes. But without detailed Hx and a direct look and palpation, it's hard to provide a sure answer online. So, ask your treating doctor timely and it's easier and more precise than online guessing, and saves the common property of humanity - time.

Herpes?: The pimple sounds like the inflammation around an ingrown hair which should resolve with warm to hot soaks frequently. Blisters on the penis usually suggests herpes infection, but this is unusual without any pain. If you applied any medication to the area this may be a topical reaction to that, or potentially to something your wife has been using for vaginitis.

Penis bump: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean). Bottom 2 photos are STDs (HPV and Molluscum) to be evaluated by your MD so s/he can rule out other STDs and council you for prevention.

See a doctor: The bumps may just be due to irritation (too dry?, rubbed too much?) or it can be due to an infection. If it is a pimple, it can be treated with drainage or antibiotics. However, it may be a std if sexually active, but it is hard to tell what kind of infection without seeing it.

I have this big bump on the shaft of my penis. It looks like a pimple and it's by itself. Could this be herpes it popped like a pimple also?

Milia: It is possible that the lesion you see on your penis, is a small cyst with the name I wrote above. This is not contagious or dangerous and it is not uncommon.
