Red face Pimple on head of penis?

Hey all. I just went to the urinal and noticed that I have what looks like the start of a pimple on the head of my penis. It's a little red and looks just like a pimple. No pain or anything like that. I'm only sexually active with my wife. Is it a pimple, or could it be something left over from my bachelor days that's now cropping up? We've been married for a year, and I haven't been with anyone else for three years. I've never had an std so far as I know. Ideas?

Sounds like a pimple to me. I imagine the penis head has pores just like the rest of our skin (I can't get close enough to tell) or it could be a spot from an irritant.
Time will tell.

Okay, I think I solved this one, but tell me if any of you have experienced this before: The spot on the head of my penis never developed into a pimple, it just stayed kind of red and a little puffy. It kept feeling raw when I would exercise, and therein lies the, ah, rub. It kept coming out the barn-door of my boxers and rubbing against my shorts. Before any of you lecture to me about wearing boxers while exercising, let me just say that it hasn't caused a problem for me before.

Ever since I changed to "tighty whities", things have settled down. Stupid answer to a stupid problem, but there you have it.
