Sebaceous Glands or STD?
herfyguy posted:
I'm 24 and sexually active but pretty safe with condoms.

A week ago I noticed a little bit of itching focused near the base of the penis and scrotum, mostly when I'm moving around. Then I took a look and thought I had genital warts, then I noticed the bumps were mostly coming from pubic hair follicles on penis and scrotum. Today the itching has mostly subsided but i've noticed the bumps have moved up the penis shaft focused on the right side. The bumps are hard to see flaccid and are not above the skin. None of them are painful or becoming worse/red/blister like.

I plan on getting tested in a few days, but I would love to hear some opinions. Does anyone have any insight into this? I'm obviously kind of nervous.

It sounds like some type of pimple or some other agrivation but it never hurts to go and get a complete STD testing and make sure they do a type speciffic igg blood testg for both HSV 1 & 2 so that you know what your herpes status is. People can have herpes and have no idea they have it.
