    red spots on penis

    Almost a year ago, I visited two doctors for an STD check. The first sloppily lost blood and urine samples, but when the test was finally completed correctly it came back with borderline HSV1. When I say borderline it was right between positive and negative. I never got an explanation of these numbers as that doctor was too incompetent to follow up or respond to inquiries.
    The next physician looked at the same test and decided I needed a swab test. According to new doc, the blood test for HSV was not always reliable in its predictions and a physical swab was the best indicator. The swab came back negative for HSV 1&2. I was diagnosed with a yeast infection or something similar(previous partner had yeast infection and I'm not circumcised) and told to be hygienic.
    Fast forward several months, and most of my symptoms have cleared up associated with that diagnosis(uncomfortable feeling when I don't wash, some mild burning, irritation, etc. Most of these occur when I don't wash). I haven't felt anything in several weeks. Today I was upset when I found two red spots on the penis head in a new area. It appears to be reddish bumps and the surrounding skin(maybe a millimeter or less radius) is red. It's slightly uncomfortable but more upsetting than anything else. I've only had one partner with no STDs in the past year and we have been very careful.
    From the internet, this doesn't seem to be a yeast infection, do I have HSV1? Were the doctors wrong? I'm frustrated and unsure after going through two physicians. Another STD test?
