Small bumps around the base of penis

About 2 years ago, I was diagnosed with HPV and had them promptley burned off at the doctors office. I've since returned to the doctor out of fear of the return, however my doctor assured me they were not warts, etc.  I took his word for it. These bumps do not get bigger so i'm not worried about them being warts, however, they ARE somewhat sensitive and quite annoying.  Is there anything I can do to reduce their size or sensitivity? Also, I have to spots on my penis from where the warts were removed that are reddish, they almost look like scar tissue.  Is there anyway to reduce the appearance of these spots?  They are also sometimes sensitive and again, annoying.

This is a wonderful service and I appreciate your time in responding.

Thank you.

It sounds as though the bumps that stayed behind after your warts were successfully treated are not themselves warts.  As I told the last questioner, I think bumps like the ones you still have are best left alone.  Treatment is both unnecessary and ineffective.  The same is true for residual red spots.  Confidence that you don't have warts now should make the problem less concerning.

Take care.

Hi,

I joined up to this website cos im really worried.  I just turnt 16 and ive got these sort of bumps around the base of my penis and all over my scrotom.  Im really worried because theyve been there acouple of years now and they dont go, the same spots stay and i think more and more are growing. Im not sure whats happening because i havent had sex and i dont abuse my penis in anyway, im afraid to confront my family about this and i dont have the bottle to show a doctor. does anyone know whats wrong with me??

Hi,

I think it's normal, i recall when i was 14 i saw those bumps too and i panicked.

If you did not have unprotected sex and you been safe, i think it's nothing to worry about.

my doctor told me that those bumps were follicles for the hair to grow and it's normal.

If you feel worried, just go see a doctor and he will reassure you.

hey i was reassured about what that guy said, but i went on another website and saw a picture of it and think i have sumthing else. this looks pretty much exactly the same as what i have, and im thinking if this is so normal how coem ive never heard about it before? also i have watched a fair amount of pornographic movies and i never seen a man with the same thing as me although every1 seems to reassure me that its common and normal... also i found out there is no way to get rid of this and i dont know how i am going to tell my girlfriend or girlfriends to come, i feel so sad and i dont know why

I believe i have something called Sebaceous Prominence but im not sure how it gets there...

the picture of it is here:

few im relieved.  im so sorry for sending so many comments but ive finally figured how to get rid of these bumps! if u have these bumps tyhe best thing to do is leave your penis alone.  this includes no masterbating (masturbating), clean undies everyday, and try not to scrub too hard when washing.  also if u have a girl who wants to touch u etc, make sure she has clean fingers, mouth or whateva.  i am so glad about this information, and i bloody hope it works, for all u people who are worried to hell like me i hope this eases yourself because i think u get it if u irritate your skin like this...

Damn, sorry to hear they aint gone guys!!

When i found out about how to get rid of them it was through a friend online, and she told me about how her boyfriend had the same thing.  She told me it took him about 3-4 months for them to fade.

Sorry to hear your having problems but they should fade eventually mine faded after about 6 months cos i couldnt help masterbating (masturbating) its almsot as addictive as smoking lol!!!
