Customer Question
I noticed random microscopic...

I noticed random microscopic bumps on my shaft about a week ago. They are skin colored and not itchy, nor are they painful. They appear to be receding as the week goes on, however I am worried about what they may be. I have one partner

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

This has lasted 6 days now. Nothing appears to make it worse. I have been using soap more thoroughly every day and they appear to be receding into nothing

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have one sexual partner. Previous sexual partners (all female) have recent std testing completed and are all clean

microscopic means you need a microscope to see them.

these bumps don't sound like they are sexually transmitted.

you may just be feeling hair follicles or skin pores on your skin.

Microscopic meaning I can barely see them. I should have used a better word. To give a reference they are the size of a pinhead
Urologist: Dr. David, MD replied 11 months ago

these sound very small

you want to upload a photo of them

they sound like skin pores or hair follicles.

they don't sound dangerous.

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.
