Hi. It is best to just carefully trim male pubic hair with scissors. If you really need to shave, use a good quality shaving gel and fresh razor blade each time. Pat dry with a clean towel and apply a post-shave balm (Clinique make one) or some Vaseline or Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream to reduce shaving rash.
Do not pop pimples. This spreads bacteria under the skin, leading to more pimples in the same place, delayed healing time and possible secondary infection.
Do no use soap as lubricant when masturbating, this will sting. If you need lubrication use a suitable product such as KY Jelly.

On the shaft of your penis? Are you sexually active? Have you recently had unprotected sex?

Those are sebaceous glands... I have them on my genitals too. You have nothing to worry about.

When you do become sexually active, always use a condom to prevent catching an infection. Most women would not be put off by a man's pubic hair. Trim with scissors or shave carefully (as described in my previous answer) to avoid irritating the hair follicles.
I wouldn't use Salvon down below as this too may sting. If the spots continue try Sudocrem which contains zinc and is good for acne, diaper rash, eczema and other minor skin conditions.
