Hiya. Not surprisingly, my question concerns my penis. Yesterday I noticed a red pimple-like thing about midway through my penis. I've heard that it is possible to have pimples in the genital area, but this is not really close to any pubic hair. For the first time a similar type of a "pimple" appeared about four months ago in about the same place. I ignored it then and it went away in about one week. I am 16 and I haven't been in any kind of sexual relationship with anyone except myself I do take care of my personal hygiene especially since the "pimple" first appeared. Can bad hygiene cause a pimple like this to appear? Is there a danger of any sexual disease? I've read that the symptoms of genital herpes are somewhat like this except that the pimples which contain liquid usually come in small groups. However, it shouldn't be possible to get it without having sexual relationships, or?
