Customer Question

I have these bumps on my penis that make me self-conscious. I have had my dermatologist look at them twice and she said that they are nothing at all to worry about. What is your opinion? Are they genital warts, my dermatologist said they were in no way representative of genital warts. Thank you, ***** ***** hopefully stop me from worrying

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Definitely not genitial warts and not herpes either

These are a combination of pearly penile papules and Fordyce spots--basically totally benign cysts and no infection of any kind

Please let me know if you need any more information

Why do they seem to be more prominent now? I have only had them for a year and they have gotten more prominent over the last year. How certain are you? Thanks for your help.

I'm 100% certain

They can become more prominent from time to time
