Pus filled bump not getting healed. STD?

I have had a small, round, hard bump for a few months. About 2 weeks ago it popped on its own and was just leaking yellowish fluid. When pressed, some blood as well. It healed up and stopped leaking but is still there. It itches a bit but otherwise just irritating. Now there is another close to it. I am afraid it is an STD, but I am not sure. I have been active once in the last year.

Thanks for the query,

Possibility of std is less likely

None of the std present without a genital lesion.

It might be a recurrent folliculitis.

Apply an antibacterial cream and take oral antibiotics.

meet a dermatologist if the symptoms persist longer.
