Small Penis Bumps

I recently noticed a few small red bumps on the shaft of my penis. About 1mm in size. The bumps are red but have a whiteish head when squeezed. There barely noticable except when my penis is erect. I've been with the same girl for years. But recently had a wart on the hand I mastubate with. I'm wondering if I've given myself genital herpes, by spreading it from 1 part of my body to another or if this is something else.

Do the lesions itch? Is there any asociated rash at the site?

This could be genital herpes, fordyce spots, folliculitis or eczema.

Wear lose, comfortable clothes - wash youur clothes in chlorhexidine, do not use a razor or hair removing agent at the site, maintain good personal hygiene.

'Fordyce spots are small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and usually affect younger men. They may occur as a solitary lesion, but frequently appear in crops of 50 to 100. They are painless and not itchy, but may cause embarrassment because of their appearance, or a fear that they might be sexually transmitted. '
