the bumps on my penis head i had since i was a kid but the shaft part and from the picture its irrated from me itchy also on the shaft you can see where my skin is kinda bunched up also could this be a fungus?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
it started with a few like 3-4 then now its alot but seems no more have came up

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The bumps look like an epidermoid or sebaceous cysts.
This can contain fluid from secretion of the sebaceous gland.
These are formed from swelling of the glands.
Usually much treatment is not necessary in these conditions.
Please do not press it often which can cause inflammation.
If it becomes painful, then there can be inflammation or infection.
In that case warm moist compress, antibiotic cream , or oral antibiotic can be required.
You can consult a dermatologist for treatment.
Now a days minimal invasive surgery is done to avoid scar.
Other than this, laser or electrodessication may be tried.
Local injection of steroid can be given.
Small incision and drainage can be done to remove the material from inside.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.
