Hi,

If you were not engaged with unprotected sex then you are not having STD. That spots on shaft of penis are due to Tinea infection. Use Clotrimazole cream for local application. It will heal soon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
