Hello,I am Dr. Aren and i will help with your query.These bumps are injuries caused to the skin of the shaft either due to chafing / friction due to humping /sex without arousal of the partner(Dry vagina).These injuries are due to intercourse with a dry vagina,do wash them with warm water .Application of a mild steroid cream (after discussing this with your doctor) and use of NSAIDs like Ibubrufen will help reduce the pain.It would also be prudent to rule out Herpes (HSV1 and 2),and any local fungal infections which may also make the skin more sensitive to friction.Rough sex without adequate foreplay may also be the cause.

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.
