weird white bumps on head of penis

I just found this site, and hallelujah, it's exactly what I've been needing for awhile to ask all my weird health-related questions that I'm too embarrassed to ask a doctor.

Anyway I've been curious about this for years. I'm a 25 year old guy in good general health. Around the base of the head of my penis, there are a bunch of small white bumps that almost look like pimples. They really only go around the top and sides and there aren't any under the bottom. I'm uncircumcised and I am still a virgin, so I know it's not an STD. These bumps have really only been there since I was 14 or so. They don't hurt, or itch, or anything...they just don't look very nice and I'm afraid any girl that gets a close-up look at it might think I have an STD (although I haven't heard anything about it yet). What might be causing them?

Thanks

Re: weird white bumps on head of penis

Sounds like pearly penile papules. They are totally harmless and I doubt a girl would notice them unless she was examining you under bright lighting. Not exactly a typical scenario when messing around. If she does notice them, at least you can tell her what they are now.

Aha. What causes them, just out of curiosity?

Re: weird white bumps on head of penis

If they are pearly penile papules, they are harmless nerve endings. Why they show on about 30% of men, I don't know.
