Penis lumps

Hi all,
Im a 25 year old male
Kind of freakin out at the minute.
I have noticed three lumps on the shaft of my penis, they are generally skin colour/ pink, and very small.

I have also noticed, the skin starting to flak and go white in couple of areas.
Naturally i am getting very worried.

Hope you can help,
Not sure what it is, whether its an STD, natural infection or what

Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be contact dermatitis, rash due to friction rub, folliculitis, cysts ,molluscum contagiosum(multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug) or genital warts(caused by HPV infection) or herpes.

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.

I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
