recently(about four days ago) i noticed that i have several small red spots on the shaft of my penis, about a half an inch from the head. they are very small, arent raised like a 'bump', and dont hurt or itch unless i touch them (then theres a slight irritated feeling) i have been sexually active, but i rarely have unprotected sex(the last time being about 4 years ago, and ive never had any std symptoms) lately ive had some irritation down there from rough rubbing from my girlfriend, and it went away in about a week or a little more (this happend twice over the last 3 weeks) im 100% sure it was skin irritation though. this particular time i had sex (with a condom)and was unable to shower for about 36 hours afterwards(Gross, i know ) could this be herpes, even though it isnt raised bumps and doesnt hurt or itch unless i touch it? any responses would be much appreciated!
Red Dots Please Help
It sounds like what are generally called "broken capillaries", which don't mean anything bad. They probably came as a result of the irritation.
thanks for your input! i know i overreact to things like this, but i suppose its better to be too cautious than to not care. Thanks for the peace of mind
