Dear customerThank you for staying online. The two pictures you have send & the symptoms you have described of painless bumps on shaft of penis since last few days is most likely because of a condition called fordyce's spot.They are painless bumps but may cause embarrassment because of their appearance, or a fear that they might be sexually transmitted – which they are not! They are abnormally dilated blood vessels, covered by thickened skin. Another possibility is of angiofibromas. They are Pearly papules & are not infectious and require no treatment. Both the conditions are self limiting & don't require any treatment & it is not an STD.So bot***** *****ne is that there is nothing concern about these bumps on shaft of penis.Nothing to worry.Just keep an eye of observation.They usually resolve on its own within few days to weeks. Hope this helpedMy goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.Thank you.Kind RegardsDr.Josh
