Any treatment for blood blisters on scrotum/Angiokeratoma?

I went to my Urologist and she told me men occasionally gets this.  Angiokeratoma of fordyce.  I have around 6 or 7 on my left scrotum and maybe 1 or 2 on my right.  It's really making me so self concious and I am wondering what can I do to treat it?   I heard some certain laser, pulse , electric or something along those lines might help.  I tried to drain it myself and it does work for a week or so and they come back.  I know I might sound vain, but i'm despreate on getting these removed or at least stop it from getting more.   So if anyone can give me some advice and where I can get these taken off?  Also what causes it, I heard from people that men who wear penis/scrotum rings develops this .. I use to wear it but not anymore.. Please help, it looks ugly...

Angiokeratomas are benign marks on the scrota of middle-aged men. Your best bet is to accept yourself as you are.  These can be burned off with electricity, if you insist, but new ones will come back.

Best.
