Okay - you more than likely have an infection - of what type this is difficult to say - this could be a herpes infection although herpes is more smaller lesions with clear fluid - but they do burn, hurt and sting.
This could be some other time of STD - but hard to say which one unless I could actually look at it.
And, this could just be a simple infection that IS NOT a STD - but either way you do need to get this evaluated, and 'Cultured' to see exactly what type of infection this is, and hence your doctor will be able to treat this appropriately.
