Painless bumps/blisters on penis

This is rather difficult to say but I've noticed some bumps that look like blisters along the ridge of of the head of my penis, along the bottom. They don't hurt at all, but there are a few of them close together. They aren't tiny like pinpricks, but aren't large either. Maybe 3 or 4 mm.

I noticed them about 3 days ago and have not noticed any change, larger or smaller.

It is tough for me to imagine that this is Herpes or any STD as I have been in a monogamous relationship for over 5 years now and this is the first I've ever seen of anything like this, but I am definitely concerned. There is no pain but you don't want to see something like this ever. Any ideas what this could be?

Re: Painless bumps/blisters on penis

search for images of pearly penile papules.
if it's a match, they are harmless nerve endings, visible in about 30% of the male population.

Re: Painless bumps/blisters on penis

I did that and I don't quite think it's a match (much as I want it to be). These are a little bigger than the pictures I saw that looked like pinpricks. They are also more like raised white skin (like a blister). They aren't hard. There's also not a lot of sensation in them... they don't hurt but they don't 'feel' much either, which I'd imagine a nerve ending would right?

They could be HPV warts or Herpes. Only a doctor could tell you

Re: Painless bumps/blisters on penis

I agree with the other poster....look up PPP.....I was so worried about these little bumps on the shaft of my penis that I went ahead and made an appointment to the dermatologist.....in less than 2min.....she said completely normal.......
