Please help

Hey hey. I'm 16 and about a year ago I noticed these tiny white bumps just under the head of the penis. A group on either side of that bit of skin that goes up from the foreskin to the hole. They all vary in size but are relatively small. I have only recently had sex for the first time. But as I have said. I noticed them a while ago. Does any one have any idea of what they are.

Re: Please help

The "bumps" you talk about are harmless and many guys have them. They are either fordyce spots or Tyson's glands. Tyson's glands appear exactly where you describe them -- on both sides of the frenulum. Two other common "bumps" that you might like to find out about are pearly penile papules and sebaceous prominence. All of these skin features are common on men's genitals; as you are aware, they are not caused by having sex.
