Hello I'm a teenage boy who's a virgin and circumcised

Patient

Q: Hello I'm a teenage boy who's a virgin and circumcised. I have had a small grey bump on the shaft of my penis for a while now. I popped it and puss came out, then I wiped it down with an alcohol wipe to keep it clean. The next thing I know, a few weeks later the bump is back in the same exact place. There seems to be two little holes on it and that is where the puss comes out when I pop it. Since I'm a virgin I don't think its an STD. It also appeared before I started masturbating, so I don't know if that's a factor or what. Could it just be an infection from touching my penis without washing my hands or something?
