I had unprotected sex on 2/7/14 .on 2/11/14 I noticed a clear  rising on my penis.i popped it on the same day I noticed it.the pics shown are on 2/12/14 the day after I popped puss or blood came out of it .it was shaped like skin was raised like a volcano and the small clear bump sat on top of it..any help would be greatly appreciated.

Herpes doesn't happen 4 days later after exposure, so you can automatically rule that out. Your immune system would have to recognize the virus and create an open sore (which is the active form of the outbreak) and don't look like what you have. Which means.....ready for it?.....its a pimple! Hurt like hell and I get them too, especially when I get stressed out. The reason why no fluid came out is because the skin cells of your scrotum and penis do not have the sebaceous (oil producing) cells the rest of your body has, so there's no white or black head (comedone). If you have follow-up questions, please consult your primary care provider for further information and stay safe my friend.
