Bumps on penis, used Tecnu. What could it be?

Ive noticed my penis the past few weeks has been getting bumps on the sides and head. I thought it was poison ivy at first so I used tecnu for a few weeks. But it just keeps getting worse. What could it be? I ve only ever had sex once and she was a virgin and I used a condom. So I don t understand if this is an STD , how did I get it?

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have developed infection of the glans penis due to allergic reaction to condom(Ballanitis).

You need to take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefotaxime along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily along with topical steroid cream for local application.

Ensure to clean your genitals with warm water twice daily.and avoid any sexual activities till it gets cured completely.
