Hello from JustAnswer.
What symptoms are you having that makes you suspect that you may have an STD?
No, these red spots do not look like an STD. A small red spot that develops into a blister or an ulcer would be worrisome for herpes, but these red spots would have evolved by the point that they would have gotten to this size.
It is possible that these red spots could be due to a fungal infection of the skin of the penis, but a fungal infection of the penis is not sexually transmitted, and can occur in someone that is not sexually active.
There also are some inflammatory skin disorders that can present as red spots on the penis.
If you were being seen in the office, the usual next step would be to scrape the surface of the red spots and examine the scrapings under the microscope to look for evidence of a fungal infection. However, if you are trying to deal with this without seeing your doctor, another option would be to try an over the counter antifungal medicine to see if it helps, such as clotrimazole.
