What do pimples on the penis indicate?

I had sex with a women that had been in a 13 year marriage at which I was her first partner,and did not wash after sex for several days. She tells me that she is clean and free of any stds since she was tested at the birth of her children and has numerous blood test. I found 2 pimple like sores on the shaft not indicative of herpes, I know I get cold sores, and the pain and the appearance didn t match. It looked like a white head with a dark dot in the middle. I popped one of the lesions in the shower with hot water and there was puss and with puddy internally at the base of the cyst which I wiped away with a wash cloth. Primary didn t seem too concerned but did order a std blood screening. Could this be fungal bacterial or does hsv2 look singular like a pimple and formulate different excretion than cold sores. Pretty well healed now exhibiting nothing more than slightly itching entirely absent of pain. Been two weeks.

Lesions of herpes would appear as reddish sores. As these are itchy sores, it may be fungal. Go for blood screening as an added point.

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