On my penis shaft, I have little bumps. Many of the bumps

Customer Question

On my penis shaft, I have little white bumps. Many of the bumps have a hair coming out of the center of them, some don't. I had oral sex over two years ago, that has been my only sexual activity. Are these hair follicles? Or something else?

They are Fordyce spots which are sebaceous glands (tiny glands found near the surface of your skin) without hair follicles. Fordyce spots are generally harmless and don’t need treatment. You don't worry about them. Reassured.
