Doctor :   Let me tell you that you may be infected with Geniatal Herpes .

Doctor :   They dont show up regularly as warts, they start with as sores or cuts
Doctor :   initially and start to devolop as warts.
Doctor :   Is this the first time you are having this problem ?
User :   yes
Doctor :   This stage usually starts 2 to 8 days after you're infected, but it can take much longer to begin. Usually, the infection causes groups of small, painful blisters. The fluid in the blisters may be clear or cloudy. The area under the blisters will be red. Primary stage :The blisters break open so easily that they quickly become open sores. You may not ever notice the blisters.

User :   they are not blisters
Doctor :   Ok.

User :   litrally tiny pimples
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   Then may be you need to start on an antiviral course , instead of waiting for too long, and nothing harmful in doing that.
Doctor :   I do agree, that there can be other possibilities like yeast, fungus, but are very rare compared to Herpes.
User :   i have squeezed 2 of them and a little bit of white solid stuff has come out followed by bleeding
Doctor :   Please do not do that.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Tips to follow : Take aspirin, acetaminophen (one brand name: Tylenol) or ibuprofen (some brand names: Advil, Motrin, Nuprin).
Place lukewarm or cool cloths on the sore place.
Take lukewarm baths. (A woman may urinate in the tub at the end of the bath if she is having pain urinating -- this may help dilute the urine so it doesn't burn the sores so badly.)
Keep the area dry and clean.
Wear cotton underwear.
Wear loose-fitting clothes.

Doctor :   Ok.
User :   not even itchy
User :   just looks out of the ordinary, not sports, not warts
User :   pimples size of pin heads
Doctor :   As I am not able to see you physicaly or examine you, the best thing would be to go to a Dermatologist or Sex-Disease specilaist.But I would advsie you to take the following medication : Doctor :   If you use an anti-viral in first time infection within one week there is a better chance to cure it and prevent recurrences which are very traumatic emotionally.
Doctor :   i would advise you to : Doctor :   However, there is treatment available for acute outbreaks that involves the use of anti-viral drugs such as Acyclovir, Valaclovir or Famcyclovir.
Acyclovir has been found to reduce the reproduction of the virus in initial outbreaks, thus possibly lessening the number of subsequent outbreaks. To be effective, therapy must be started immediately after the first sores appear. Every sexual partner of the infected person needs to be examined, and if necessary, treated.

Doctor :   Famcyclovir has similar effects and may work to prevent a herpes infection from establishing itself if taken soon enough in the course of the illness. Valaclovir has similar effects.
Long-term drug therapy ('suppressive treatment') may be helpful for individuals who suffer frequent recurrent outbreaks.
Doctor :   Please do heed to my advise and get yourself a blood test done for Herpes and start with Acyclovir.
