STD's or something else?


Q: I have flesh-colored bumps on the shaft oy my penis that seem like that have been there forever. They vary in size, but do not hurt or itch unless i pick at them, then they will hurt a little and become red. I can think of only a few times where a bump was sever i.e, red, or maybe even looking like an ulcer if i pick at them enough, which then i also end up giving myself a scar. Sometimes white puss comes out of them, sometimes a clear liquid, and sometimes nothing at all. There are definetly more bumps on the bottom part of the shaft. I do, however, sweat a lot, more than the normal person, but i've also always known to sweat this much. I researched HPV and Genital Warts and Herpes but again, these bumps i have, never go away, nor have they ever really hurt. I am too nervous to go to my doctor, any idea on what you think these bumps might mean?
