About 8 months ago I got these bumps (really small less than 1 MM) on the wrinkled foreskin (uncircumcised) near the head of my penis. I have read a lot and not sure what it is so I am going to try and describe it:
- There about 6 small tiny bumps that can really be felt if i pull back on the skin
- They aren't red, they do not hurt.
- They cannot be popped.
- They do not change (no more appearing, they are also not disappearing)
- Size has been the same I am pretty sure they did not get bigger.
- I thought it was PPP but it doesn't cover my whole penis foreskin in a circle looks like just a small patch
If this is not due to PPP, this could be fordyce spots. They are small, painless, raised, pale or white spots or bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that may appear on the glans (glands) or shaft of the penis.They are a variant of sebaceous glands without hair follicles. They are very common and are not a sexually transmitted disease.
Although no treatment is required, those with the condition can utilize chemical peels, gels or creams and vaporising laser treatments such as CO2 laser or electrodesiccation.
