Question umm.... need some help here....

Hi,
Im 17 years old n have many bumps on my penis, my doctor said that it was 'calcium deposits' caused by excessive 'wetness' was the word he used and to use baby powder to keep myself dry down there.... that was a year ago, i still have the bumps and they are as big as ever...
he was right tho, i am a sweaty guy, but was he right on what he said i have? what else could it be? I have never had any type of discharge, besides when im with a girl n get a lil presemen goin...
I have been with girls before, and i have gotten head many times, never heard a complaint so i guess it cant be that abnormal, but i never saw any penis that had bumps like mine.

also i shave, and i noticed a red bump that looked like a pimple where there were a couple hairs growing back on my shaft... could it be an ingrown hair?

thx

I never heard of calcium deposits forming bumps on the skin, but I guess its possible. Are you sure these aren't normal hair follicles though? Where are these bumps located? Are they on the base? head? etc. If they're around the base of the penis going to about half way up the shaft, I'll bet they're just normal hair follicles.

Yeah, that's an ingrown hair follicle. It will go away in a couple of weeks when the hair breaks through to the surface. Don't pick at it or anything - just leave it alone and it'll fix itself.

I guess they could be hair follicles, they go about 1/2 - 3/4 the way up the shaft, and some of them do have pubic hairs.. so i guess ur right on that one

as for the ingrown hair is there any way to be positive, and is there anyway to help get rid of it... and ingrown hair is basically a pimple right? would like prescription acne medicine help, or hurt the healing process?

thanks
