Post raised, round dots on penis..pls. help!!

I have noticed these small, raised,round dots on my penis. They started on my balls in the hair line. Within about a year or so they had spread (but only on the bottom or underneath side of my penis. Like I said, they are small raised round bumps. Kinda like pimples only deeper under the skin. However, sometimes when I squeeze one a thin line of white stuff comes out. Like what is in a pimple but not as watery. More like a small white thread. Most of them do nothing when I squeeze them but some do. Since I got them before ever having sex I am thinking they can not be an STD, but I have never seen anyone else with them.

Does this sound like anything you have ever heard of? I have been trying to work up the nerve to go to a doctor but I get really embarrassed.
Thanks!

It sounds like normal bumps everyone has. Look closely and see if you have a hair coming out of any of them. If so, it's just hair follicles. It worried me for a while too until I did some reasearch online and found out what it was.

Actually it sounds like fordyce's condition to me but I could be wrong. Refer to above forums 'pearly penile papules' under Mens Sexual Health for more information. Or search the internet via: Fordyce. If I recall correctly my case of fordyce condition started on my scrotum (testicles) and moved upward to my shaft.

I hope for your sake it is not fordyce.

Dotking,

They are all normal hair follicles and sebaceous glands. They become prominent during puberty and stay that way. They are totally normal, all guys have this and the only reason they are so visible as opposed to other part of the body is because the skin is very thin on the shaft and scrotum.

I have the same problem. the shaft of my penis has about 75 of them on it. it is very detrimental to my self esteem seeing i dont want my girlfriend to give me oral because i fear that the school may find out if we break up. if you could somehow remove the hair folecules would that reduce the size of the lumps or eliminate then completly?

Fordyce spots are nothing bad. They are just like tiny cysts. I have 2 patches on the forskin on either side of the frenulum. They are no big deal.

Jagg: chill on the wrinkles, that just means that you have a lot of meat to shrivel up that's all. What guy minds that?

I bet when that thing is extended it aint wrinkled, right?

so how do i get rid of fordyce????


orrrr.....
is there no cure but will they go away by themselves...?

i found that using, witch hazel and then some anti wrinkle cream makes them go smaller and less noticible...

i think i might go and see a youth sex clinik.. i know theres one around my area somewhere....

There is no cure and they won't go away. I guess you can have them burned off. I'm sure that would be fun and lleave a nice scar.
