Post Concerned male teen with white spots on penis

For starters I've had sex one time when I was 14 and I use a condom. Now I am 18. When I was about 17 I started to notice white spots/bumps under the skin on the shaft of my penis. I haven't gone to a doctor because they haven't gotten worse. Some I can squeeze almost like a white head pimple and a puss like liquid comes out. Most are toward the bottom of shaft but there are spots around penis towards the top. I don't think its and STD like herpes or warts cause I've seen pictures and they don't resemble what my condition looks like. I've read about other cases, in which people have talked about things such as Molluscum Contagrosium, clogged hair folicles, Penile pearls but how to determine is unsure. Can anyone explain what these are?

Impacted hair follicles will often resemble a pimple and may produce some puss like stuff when squeezed. Pearly Penile Papules are usually whitish or flesh colored, most often feel like a bump and will not produce any puss like substance. Either of these are perfectly normal and many of us have one or both of them on the eqiuipment. Nothing to worry about, not an STD and there is really nothing you can do about either of them, just accept them!

Doesn't sound like a STD, more likely to be a hair follicle or just pores, or most likely if around the head of the penis, Pearly White Penile Papules

Cheers,

What about bumps that resemble mosquito bites that are filled with pus and blood? I do tend to pick at my pubic hair quite often.

I'd stop picking at your pubic hairs and leave things alone. You DON'T want any infections down there. If you develop those things like pimples...leave them alone and let nature take care of them. Unless, this happens all the time and they begin to change in shape, become swollen or appear infected, then you need to see a doc!

Can these "pearls" be cured?

Re: Concerned male teen with white spots on penis

Yup, I had the same thing. White, silverish, type bubbles, if you will? I to was told about 'Molluscum Contagrosium'. Was refered to a dermotoligist and she said that it was pores. No STD or strange disease. They can be frozen and removed with a laser. Dont pick at them.
