Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

A knot could be due to trauma. Another possibility is that it is a wart, however, a wart is usually firm rather than hard and it is attached to the surface of skin as compared to a knot which is within the skin. I request you to kindly visit a doctor in your vicinity for a physical examination. Most common STDs usually present either as single or multiple genital ulcer /sores, rough raised lesions or warts or as burning micturation on passing urine rather than as a knot within the skin. Kindly let me know if you need any more assistance from my side.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, Worried, On the weekend I noticed slight redness to what appeared to be some of my hair follicles on my penis (right hand underside shaft) and thought nothing of them. It is now Friday and I now have two shiny red bumps (not raised - more like blemishes) One is around 5mm, the other is around 3mm. When I looked at them yesterday, it appeared to me as though to the centre of them was a black dot (possible trapped hair). I went home yesterday and removed at least one hair from one or two of them (small hairs, hence my uncertainty). They are completely painless and are not raised. Could they be an STD? I shaved last week with an electric razor but have also had unprotected sex. Please help.

I had 3 bumps on the shaft of my penis, they appeared to be pimples so I popped them, I have not had any symptoms no burning when I pee or any other thing that might suggest I have an std besides the 3 bumps. Now that they are popped they have all scabbed over, I was just wondering do you think it could be an std?
