No no other symptoms and dont take any medications. Never smoked never took drugs and hardly drink alcohol. Tiny white pimples under the hair. As you can imagine it is embarrassing
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for that additional information.

A picture would be helpful, however I understand where you are coming from.....
The good news? These are most likely fordyce spots.

These are normal sebaceous glands in your skin near hair follicles.

Do not pick at them, do not worry about them. They are a normal part of your scrotum and penis.

Does this make sense to you?

You can not get rid of them -- they are a normal part of your scrotum and penis.
