I have whitehead on top of penis. Is it herpes ?

I had unprotected sex about 3 week ago with an ex girlfriend. The night before I went to get my physical done I had sex with my current girlfriend. On the day of the physical I noticed a small white head at the top of my penis, and a couple of red bumps. It never itched or had red areas, burning etc. Now my penis head is very dry. I asked for std s bloodwork but freaked out when I saw the whiethead I have been looking at it a lot and washing it a lot. I m super worried its herpes but hoping to God its not.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic. It can be due to infected hair follicles, contact dermatitis, allergic reaction or genital herpes sores if there is any history of unprotected sexual or oral intercourse. I suggest you to consult a doctor and get specific investigations done for herpes. Till then apply some topical antimicrobial cream.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
