I've have small flesh coloured bumps on my penis head (glans)

Customer Question

I've have small flesh coloured bumps on my penis head (glans) for over a year, they are mostly at the base of the head in a formation going around the circumference. They are pretty discreet but more visible when erect and sometimes redden after sex or masturbation. I am circumcised and not had much intercourse in the last 12-18 months.
I used a similar service to this and they recommended moisturisers but I feel it's not just dry skin. It's like the pores are blocked or something. They're not as big as warts and they don't hurt, itch or irritate. I'm pretty certian it's not pearly papules but am baffled as to what it is. As I say, it's more of an aesthetic concern and to make sure it's not serious.

those look like benign fordcye spots on the head of the penis.

Dr. David :

they are not warts or STD.

one way to get rid of fordcye spots is to see a dermatologist to get laser skin treatment.

any creams? natural remedies?

creams and natural remedies will not change fordcye spots.
