Or genital herpes

This may not be an STD. It can be just skin gland inflammation. If this grows in size, genital warts can be a possibility in that case. Presently they look like skin gland inflammation. Usually, they are self-limiting. You may get an STD screening since you are exposed to unsafe sex which will further help in the diagnosis.
