Bumps on my Penis
For a very long time now I've had these bumps on my penis which look a lot like acne.
I had them before I lost my virginity and before I ever had oral so I know they can't be an Std, but its still scary.
I'm afraid of my partner noticing them and would like to know how to get rid of them.
I read stuff about penis papules and sweat gland infections which sound and look a lot like what I've got. If this is the case, can antibiotics get rid of em? And if yes how long should it take about?

And another thing. As weird as it is, I herd my parents mention something about my father having a similar problem?
Can it be something genetic?

Hi,

This could be - pearly penile papules or fordyce spots. You would need to consult your doctor for a confirmed diagnosis.

'Pearly penile papules are multiple, small (about 1-3mm) papules running around the circumference of the crown of the glans penis. They typically develop in men aged 20 to 40, and around 10 per cent of all men are affected. They may be mistaken for warts, are not infectious and require no treatment.'

'Fordyce spots are small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and usually affect younger men. They may occur as a solitary lesion, but frequently appear in crops of 50 to 100. They are painless and not itchy, but may cause embarrassment because of their appearance, or a fear that they might be sexually transmitted. '

Let us know if you need any further information.

Post us about what your doctor advises.

Regards.
