I am 14 years old and I have noticed flesh colored pimple like bumps on the shaft and testicles of my penis. I haven't had sex or anything so I'm pretty sure it's not an std. I'm still worried because I don't know if this is a serious or common condition. They don't hurt at all. Are they ingrown hairs? I have noticed that they are right around my pubic hairs. An answer would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Sean-- I really cannot give you a diagnosis but I can help give you a list of what they could be. Only your physician or Dermatologist could give you an accurate diagnosis.
Possible causes: normal penile feature, folliculitis (inflamed pits where hairs grow out of), warts--STD, molluscum contagiosum--STD, I am sure there are other causes but this is what comes to mind at present.
Don't be afraid to ask to see your Pediatrician for an exam. Good communication with your doctor and your parents is a healthy thing!
