Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

I would like rule out possibility of an STD. In that regard I would like to know if you are sexually active?If yes, with single partner or more partners?and when was your last sexual contact?
Thank you. I have reviewed the Images.
I can see erosions at the base of shaft of penis and adjacent base of scrotum. I would keep a possibility of genital herpes. A condom does not protect 100% from genital herpes, specially since it covers only the front part of shaft of penis and leaves the base of shaft, base of scrotum and pubic region exposed by skin to skin contact during sexual intercourse. I suggest that you visit a venereologist nearby for a confirmatory clinical diagnosis and lab testing for herpes genital
You can take tablet Zovirax 400mg (Acyclovir), three times daily for a week. Topically you can apply T- Bact cream.
You can certainly have a family. Herpes can be effectively treated however it may recur as episodes of genital sores since the virus (herpes simplex virus) stays inside body,after it is acquired. However the episodes can be effectively treated with antiviral medications.
