Does this look like an std?

I recently had u protected sex with an ex girlfriend two weeks ago. I just noticed 3 spots on my penis and am worried it might be an std. I feel weird asking my normal doctor about this and prefer the anonymous approach. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Theres no pain associated with them. I do believe I have jock itch though. I sit in a hot truck 8 hours a day. Would that cause these spots? They are mainly flat but raised slightly. First time I have had sex in 6 months

It's hard to say from the picture you provided. If it is painful, it could certainly be herpes. If it doesn't hurt, then it could be a papilloma which is another term for wart. It should be checked out. In addition, exercising safe sex options such as the use of condoms can protect you in the future from STDs
Really can't tell from the photo. Your Doctor is there to help not to judge. They will protect your privacy. Let someone exam you who knows you, better to have the whole picture from your regular doc, then some anonymous doc who sees you in a clinic.
The picture is not adequate and you could have venereal warts or herpes, both of which are difficult to distinguish. If you are embarrassed to talk about this with your doctor go to an STD clinic where you will remain anonymous until your sexual contacts have to be notified if you have an STD.
