also just noticed while doing more looking around that the small un noticible bumps on my shaft and scrotum i was refering to look like penile papules.
could this have anything to do with the larger ones on the bottom of my penis?
You really should confirm whatever you think you have with a doctor. I am sure there are good compassionate doctors in the state of Florida. I am sorry to hear some medical provider just gave you medication for herpes when you probably didn't need it.
You need to see a good doctor (they are out there) for whatever is bothering you about these bumps or STD concerns. A igg HSV-2 and igg HSV-1 would tell you if you have herpes.
It sounds like hair follicles, or sebaceous bumps, Ive got them all over my penis and scrotum there completely normal, dont pop them as when they grown back next time theyll be bigger.
If the doctor doesn't seem bothered I wouldn't think it's that serious but I would check it out again
