On the shaft of my penis i had a bump that looked like a regular zit and i popped it and a lot of pus and blood came out. Do u think its herpes?

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave at all like this; herpes lesions do not have pus and blood. And pimples are quite common on the penis. Herpes lesions tend to be quite superficial, whereas pimples are deeper. Think of herpes blisters as being on the surface (they start in the outermost laters of skin), whereas pimples develop "in" the skin. And most herpes outbreaks have multiple lesions, not a just one. ...Read more

May be just an acne: It's most likely just an infected hyperactive sebaceous gland like an acne on the face. Its occurrence will not affect how you urinate, but give you some local pain & irritation. It tends to recur once infection once took place; so, it may require surgical ablation or excision. But, without inspection / palpation, it's still hard to give an accurate Dx. So, see Doc for sure detail and care. Best.. ...Read more
