Pimple penis

This answer was rated:

For about 10 days now, I have had two side-by-side pimples(?) or something on the head of my penis. Everytime I shower, they become white heads, and then the white heads rub off, and they are just a scab. BUT Every single time I am in the hot water, white head emerges, I do not touch it as I am scared. Originally, I popped the hell out of it, and that did me no good. I also have these little scabs 2-3 other places on my shaft, they are superficial, very small, look like masturbatory scabs. But again, I dont know. My lymph nodes in my groin are tender. What gives?

painful or not?

No pain. I mean my groin lymph nodes are tender, but thats the extent of it. I have no pain, worked all week, went out with friends last night, it doesnt hurt when i pee or anything of the sort.

When we last talked about this, you had a doctors appointment the next day...yesterday correct?

I had to rescheudle till Tuesday, so I have not gone yet.

Dr. Why thought these were abrasions.
If they have not been there more than several weeks, again you need to be checked for herpes
Infected pimples are possible., but these look more like healing scabs at this point.
I would have them swabbed now; I am not sure why you would reschedule..if they are gone, there will be nothing to tests.....however, infected pimples that are resolving, scabs, most likely, herpes, less likely.

Yeah I had a work emergency unfortunately. The two marks/pimples/herpes near the head, everytime I shower, they puss right up into a white head... how should I handle this... should i pop them? Would a herpe really do that?

Not typical of herpes.
More like infection, infected pimples.
You should leave them alone until you are seen.
And swabbed.
