Probably ok, but...: This is not particularly suggestive of an infection. Most sexual infections in men, however, produce few or no symptoms. Pain on urination is most common.

Likely folliculitis: With the development of pubic hair, you become susceptible to folliculitis -- i.e. inflammation or minor infection at the base of a hair. (You may be able to see a hair in the center of the pimple.) The only STD that could do this is genital herpes, but herpes doesn't involve hairs and is uncommon in the pubic area. You'll be at higher risk of folliculitis if you shave your pubic hair. ...Read more
