penis slight discoloration and raised bumps

Hello,

some brief notes i am a 19 year old male with pearly papules as diagnosed by 3 physicians, i have been sexually active for two years with my girlfriend we have been together for four years and were both virgins we have only very rarely had unprotected sex (she has the implanon contraceptive implant), for the past 6 months there has been a mild discoloration of the glans (glands) of my penis and several hard white bumps (about half a millimeter wide) on the glans (glands) around the urethral opening and on the sulcus, they are only noticeable when i am erect, when flaccid they become harder to spot, i have been to a GUM clinic and was told it could merely be friction from intercourse, other irritation, or general skin variation, i visited my physician and was informed that it was just variation of skin on the penis and should clear up by itself, however i got the impression he didn't actually know. these bumps do not itch, do not hurt, do not weep or create any other discharge, they have not spread or otherwise multiplied, however they do seem to calm down and become less noticeable some days. any help would be fantastic as the two doctors i have seen have not been able to set my mind at ease

extremely kind regards.

Hello,
Chances are more that these bumps are due to molluscum contagiosum. They present as multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug. The other possibilities are folliculitis,cysts , or genital warts(caused by HPV infection).

Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it.You  can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen.If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
