What causes pus filled bumps on the penis tip ? Is it due to infection transmitted by my wife during intercourse ?

Had a fungus on penis about 7 years back that cause tiny scabbed over bumps, not many. They went away for years and from time to time I ll get a bump or two but nothing like the previous case. Recently I noticed puss filled bumps on the tip of my penis towards the bottom shaft. I hadn t had sex with my wife for two weeks from the time I noticed the puss bumps. I wondered if she gave me something which I doubt but wonder where they came from.

Hi,
Fungal infection at tip of penis can reappear after sexual exposure also. Infection and pus formation in the focus is a different type of condition.
Better consult your Family Physician. he will guide you whether you require further investigations or dermatologist consultation?
Do not ignore it.
