Last year i had a initial break out of blisters on the penis

Customer Question

Last year i had a initial break out of blisters on the penis shaft, It was quite itchy the night before and woke up to the blisters - 3 days later i went to the doctor who thought it was Genital herpes at first inspection but told me it could be a bacterial infection - He took a swab of the blisters witch really hurt so he think he got a good swab, and also a blood test testing for genital herpes witch both came back negative. so he put it down to a bacterial infection. A few months later a single lesion/bump appeared on my penis and a different doctor at the same clinic said it looked traumatic and wasn't a herpes lesion. and there is 99% chance that i do not have genital herpes. A year later i still get these random red bumps/lesions on my penis that almost look like an in-grown hair they appear as single bump and never in clusters, they do not blister up, hurt, or crust over, and almost impossible to pop. Almost a hard shiny look to them. What else could this possibly be?
