Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Now from what you are describing and from what i see in the picture, it looks like that you may have developed fordyce spots. Fordyce spots are small raised yellowish or skin coloured pimples usually found in clusters on the shaft of the penis but they can also occur singularly. They can affect upto 80% of the population at one point in their lives. Fordyce spots are enlarged sebaceous glands. The function of Sebaceous glands is to produce and release a natural oil known as Sebum into the hair follicle to lubricate the skin. In the case of Fordyce spots, there is no hair follicle, and the Sebum is blocked resulting in raised bumps. The condition occurs naturally and is not associated with any illness, HIV or any STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). They are not caused by a virus, and are not contagious. In fact the spots are completely harmless, and considered a cosmetic concern only.

Now in most cases they would fade over a period of a few weeks to few months however if you want you can have them removed by visiting your dermatologist via a simple procedure but there is NO real need for that actually. These are COMPLETELY harmless and are NOT associated with any STD.

Do you have any more questions?

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.
