I have two small pimples on my penis at the top of my shaft by my pubic area. But they are going away now I also had a sore throat for a few days?

Probably Unrelated: Pimples that are getting better may not mean much since, near the hair area, there may be hair follicle infection (folliculitis), if the pimples are recurrent, open and very painful, you may wonder about herpes. Ok as long they are going away. Sore throat is probably unrelated unless there is a male receiving oral sex. In this case, sore throat may be a sexually transmitted infection. ...Read more

I get small black pimple like bumps on my penis if I try to pick them off they bleed and leave a scar. What do you recommend?

Your description: Is clear, but its implication requires an expert to look at the lesions. 'black' + 'bleeding' in any skin lesion warrants inspection by a dermatologist. Infectious, cancerous, and benign moles can all be the cause that I can't tell from here, but they can.
