Over the past few days I've noticed the appearance of small bumps on the head of my penis. I am heterosexual and I have been having a lot of sex with my girlfriend recently, almost everyday for the past three weeks or so. Around the same time she complained about an enormous amount of discharge that is creamy and white. I'm 29 years old and the bumps do not itch or burn. I am also uncircumcised.


Those are cysts and very common; no it's not an STI, but basically chafing of the skin. Your girlfriend could be having a fungal or bacteria infection and you could treat that with over the counter drugs, or simply visit the primary care provider for antibiotics. Of course, antibiotics can also cause a yeast infection, so make sure she asks for Diflucan. The bumps will go away on their own, but can just as easily come back. I would suggest investing in a water or silicone based lubricant to prevent future chafing.
