What are these bumps on my scrotum? Is this genital warts or herpes? I went to sleep slightly itchy in my groin area one night about a week ago, then the next morning i woke up with an intense itch on my scrotum and penis. I scratched very rough for about 5 min straight because the scratching felt really good. When i went to shower about 30 mins later, i noticed that i had these bumps on my scrotum and a few on my penis. The ones on my scrotum are more raised than the ones on my penis. The ones on my penis seem more flat and slightly pinkish, and the ones on my scrotum are skin colored and more raised. Ive had ingrown hairs on my shaft before because i shave my penis and scrotum with a razor and shaving cream, but nothing has ever happened like this. They arent really itchy and havnt bled or anything. As far as i can tell, they aren't filling up with stuff that will burst soon. I havnt set an appointment with my doc yet, but i will soon. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

To be honest they don't look like either herpes of HPV. Make an appt and have this checked out.
