Pimples on penis - likely molluscum

The lesions you show in your picture are likely the viral infection molluscum contagiosum, similar to warts, and confirmed by an in-office assessment by your dermatologist. In this location, they are typically sexually transmitted, but not a lifelong infection as herpes would be. Thankfully they can easily be treated.
