Well, I recently notice this tiny whitish-flesh color bumps all around the tip of my penis. I am a young circumcised afrian american man and I can't remember ever seeing them before. It could just me the normal texture of my penis or it could be something else.
I have never been sexually active but a while ago after doing my laundry in a public laundry mat within a couple days I had a itchy rash on my scrotum. After a few weeks the itching and the rash went away and I haven't seen them again (at least I don't think... I now I haven't had any more itching), but I as said earlier I now notice tiny bumps around the tip of my penis.
Are these two things related and can you give me any information of either or both from my description.
Itchy rash on scrotum most likely is (or was) jock itch. If it recurs, treat yourself with an over-the-counter antifungal cream; some of them are specifically labeled for jock itch.
What exactly do you mean by "tip" of the penis? Bumps like you describe around the corona--the edge of the glans (head) of the penis--probably are pearly penile papules. Pearly penile papules are normal, just a variation in normal anatomy; they are more common in African Americans than whites. But bumps at the true tip of the penis--around the meatus (penile opening)--likely are something else. But still most likely a normal anatomic variant, and definitely not an STD since you havne't had sex.
If still in doubt after you read this, consider posting the same question on the dermatology forum--with more precise description of the location of the bumps.
