I have had several little...
I have had several little bumps come up on my penis. They have been there for about a week and have not changed at all. They appeared less than two weeks after having unprotected vaginal sex. I can't figure out what they are but I think they could be genital warts. The girl says she has been tested and doesn't have anything and the incubation time seems kind of short. Here are some pictures:

There is some redness here but that's because I had just tried to pop some of them. Initially thought it was an outbreak of small pimples (they have a whitehead look to them.) It's harder to tell here because of the flash.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

I looked at your photos

These aren't genital warts and not herpes either

These are Fordyce spots--small benign cysts and not any infection

Usually they go away on their own in time

Please let me know if you need any more information

fordcye spots can just appear that? Is there something that causes them to appear like an irritation or something? I always thought that fordcye spots are bigger than these and lower on the penis like hair follicles?

Yes they can and there is no particular trigger for them

But these are definitely Fordyce spots and they can occur in those areas

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
