Bumps at the base of my penis

Two months ago I have realized bumps at the base of my shaft and my testicles. I dont have an itch, burning, or pain associated with them at all. In addition It seems like these bumps are collocated with my pubic hair spots. I have been to a dermatologist last month and she simply said it is related to friction and moisture at the genital locations and prescribed me a clindamycin phosphate topical gel. Although I have used it regularly for a week, twice a day, the bumps are still there and didnt seem to heal. I was wondering what these bumps could be and what should be my next step to get rid of them.

P.S. As I regularly get tested for panel STDs, I know that I am STD free..

your derm is correct, its called a skin tag, its caused by frictrion and sweating, from clothes. the only way to remove it peeling it off, or cuttin it, however it will bleed alot, and can recur.
