Hello. Thank you for posting.

It’s possible to get pimples on your genitals if the pores become clogged. A different condition of chronic (long-lasting) genital acne is technically known as hidradenitis suppurativa. It can be caused by tight clothes and profuse sweating, both of which clog up the pores. It can also be genetic. That said, be aware that symptoms of some STDs include one or more bumps or sores on the penis, for example, genital herpes, genital warts, and syphilis. For a definite diagnosis, see your doctor for an examination of your symptoms.
