Hello from JustAnswer.How long have you had these lumps?Could you attach a picture of the lumps?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 7 months ago.
I had asked for a picture and have not heard back. The most common cause of lumps on the skin of the scrotum and penis would be from prominent sweat glands. These are called Fordyce spots and are considered a normal variant. If I could say more if a picture could be reviewed.

Thank you so much for the reply sent. These are not Fordyce spots . This is an epidermal cyst that comes up with a follicular infection.It has become a furuncle now which is a larger swelling. This can be treated as follows:Use Cetaphil cleansing lotion to clean the area. Use Neosporin ointment on the area twice a day on the lump for 15 days. This will help treat the area and solve your problem. Do let me know if you have any further queries.
