Re: Fordyce spot, or herpes?
Just a bit of an update, since this sore/pimple/object in question is on the underside of my penis I started to realize that it's constantly trapped from air and maybe that's why it was looking a bit different than the other pimples I've gotten in my time. Last night after a long thorough shower I kind of positioned myself so that wasn't the case. I woke up and the sore is smaller and not as red.
I decided to still go to the doctor's though just to make sure everything is okay. After all they're only a mile up the road.
Also I did do some searches for pictures of herpes in its beginning stages, and it seems to look considerably different. It looks like a small cluster of dots, but they don't look like pimples, which are round and very uniform. These look like they vary in shape and size, however even the smallest one looks to be bigger than a typical pimple. Granted the pictures are nothing to go by, but after looking at the pictures I'm more confident it's just a pimple now. I think the only reason it really scared me was because... assuming it is a pimple, and knowing full well I popped it, maybe that's why it got the redness it did. Because after popping it, the open sore was just sitting underneath everything kind of trapped from air. Perhaps that explains it.
