Most likely, ok...: As long as no local discomfort, such rashes may suggest mild balanitis (inflammation of glans penis), which is usually related with redundant foreskin with poor local hygiene. Without detailed history and inspection, it's hard to make a firm statement. If any doubt, go to see an expert in the field. Best luck... ...Read more

Probably not an STD: No STD causes this sort of rash or in this location. If primarily blisters that become pimples then open sores or scab-covered, herpes would be a concern. But this sounds more like physical irritation, allergy (e.g. vaginal hygiene product), or a superficial non-STD skin infection, e.g. fungal. It doesn't sound worrisome, but if it continues or you remain concerned, see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
