Penile Bumps on Glans Penis

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've had these small bumps on the glans penis for about 2 months or so now. I have never had sexual intercourse with anyone in any way or form. I'm 22. I have recieved all the standard vaccination shots. There is a bit of redness and itchiness but nothing unbearable. There is also a bit of irritation and sensativity as well. There is also this red line that appeared right on the corona as well. I've had those small tiny white bumps on the corona for a long time too. Please help me decifier what this is!

    Those are Pearly Penile Papules. Yours are less noticeable than the ones I had. They are perfectly harmless but a confidence breaker.

    Agree with brian regarding small papules rimming the glans. The slight irregularities on the skin of the glans proper is also normal and varies over time. Normal penis.

      I mentioned seeing these...as being small irregularities on the glans proper as opposed to the corona or rim. I don't believe they represent any pathology. The skin of the glans is still skin and very delicate skin at that. Mucus membrane in uncircumcised males and epithelialized (normal ) skin in circumsized males. Because of this, the glans is more like the inside if your cheek than the shaft of the penis which is normal skin and is thus the glans is very sensitive to irritants. I suspect it is nothing. But keep us up to date!

      I see. Yeah, my doctor did a battery of tests. He did a culture for Herpes and that came back negative. Then he put me on some anti-bacterial med, nothing changed. Then he put me on antifugal oral medication and a cortizone/betamethazone cream and that didn't change things much either. I just want to know what this is already! He said we could do a biopsy but that would involve numbing my penis, plus the local anestheic and them having to cut a slice and cauterize doesn't sound appealing at all. I just hope this goes away!
