8 days ago I had a red mark on the head of my penis. I chepured it and played with it had of paranoia, now it's like 2 side by side what I think to be zits. They have scabs on them, but when I shower and expose them to ho water, they have white heads like a pimple. They do not hurt. My groin lymph nodes are also tender. I am getting the results of a comphrehensive std test back on friday or saturday.
What is your question?

I have two scabs, which are on and off again white heads on the head of my penis for about 8-9 days now. They have had pussy white heads 2-3 times, and then they sort of fall off, and now its just a typical scab. They don't hurt. I want to know if i have herpes.

The only way to tell is with a swab.

What you describe is atypical for herpes, which usually is a blister that breaks open and forms a painful scab.

However, it is not impossible, and a doctor needs to swab one for the lab before they are gone to be sure.

Let me know if you have more questions.

I have a doctor appointment tomorrow plus I am getting the results of an STD test. I am hoping its not herpes. I just got out of the shower, when I go in, the two scabs/pimple things get white heads, like a reaction to steam or warm water, this has been happening for 3 days straight everytime i get in the shoewr. A few days ago when it first happend, i thought pimple and i went buck popping it... does this sound like herpes?

Not really.
It could be, but it could be pimples as well.

good luck.

One last question, can you explain to me why my groin lymph nodes would be tender... is that possible if i had a pimple on my penis, and caused trauma by trying to pop it?

It is possible with any infection, even infected pimples.
Make sure your doctor looks at these.
