Fordyce spots or STD?


Q: I think I might have fordyce spots on my shaft, they are small flash colored bumps that dont hurt or anything. I noticed one a few months ago and about 2 weeks ago I noticed about 6 or 7 more. I also noticed a small reddish bump that looks more like a mole and it has a flattish surface with a little dimple. This was a few weeks ago. Today I noticed 3 more small red bumps near that on my groin near the base. I'm very concerned with this because my girlfriend and I of 8 months have unprotected sex. These things have also been present since she last got checked at the gynocologist. Is it possible that I have an STD? Fordyce spots? Molluscum contagiosum?

Symptoms:  none
