Red bump on penis with pus.

Yesterday, I was going to the bathroom and noticed a small red bump on the side of my penis.

At once I was aware that there was a problem and that this wasn't just your conventional ingrown hair, I thought that maybe it was a mosquito bite because it showed up almost immediately as I had not noticed it about an hour before.

It doesn't seem to be growing, getting more sensitive, swelling, getting irriated, or anything to show that it's getting worse.

It hurts, bad, but only when I squeeze or put pressure on it, it'll sting for about 2 minutes and then it doesn't hurt anymore. I've continued to squeeze the pus and when I wipe it away with a paper tissue it almost seems yellow (but it's white when it comes out of the bump)

The bump had a white head, almost like a pimple.

The area around the bump is not irritated, so I'm not sure.

I am still a virgin, therefore any STD's are out of the question, I rubbed some polysporin onto the bump when I had squeezed out most of the pus and it seems to be helping, there has been hardly any pus coming out after I had applied the polysporin.

I'm not exactly sure what this could be, I'm not deathly concerned at the moment, just enough to check up and make sure it's not getting any worse.

Any ideas?

Re: Red bump on penis with pus.

Squeezing it only opens you up to infection, in a place you don't want to be infected.
Time to see your doctor. It may be a cyst.

It was already infected to begin with. (Hint being the pus)

I got rid of it now, it was the size of a BB pellet and hurt, bad, so I squeezed it, tons of pus and blood came out, got the polysporene and put a nice size of it on there.

Now it's basically gone. Over the past 3 days it slowly disappeared (this was after I popped it and put polysporene on it) and now it's barely even noticeable. It should be gone in the next day or two.
