Bumpy Red Skin of Penis Glans

I'm a 28 year old male, and have had many sexual partners. With that said, I don't believe this condition to be an STD, because I have had blood work frequently and recently and came up negative for all tested STDs. My penis does not hurt, itch, burn, etc. I just realize that the texture seems quite bumpy and would prefer it to not look like this. It's probably looked like this for as long as I can remember; I do masturbate an average of two times per day without lube, so I assume this is probably a factor.

My best guess is keratinzation for the overall rough/red texture of the glans. But there is a small, circular, slightly raised bump in the middle of the penis head that has been there for as long as I can remember (pre-sexual history). I have no idea what this could be, and am hoping for some suggestions. I will see a dermatologist for these issues, but would appreciate some best guesses in the meantime.

I agree about the keratinzation, but I'm not sure about the bump. That could be part of it, but a derm who can examine it more closely, and perhaps biopsy it, will be able to better tell you.

Find out what the bump is first, but some Vitamin E may help. Ask the derm about it before using it.
