Answer
Your sexual history is very important here. White pin head lesions may be infections
( eg virus, fungal infections,bacterial ) or may be due to contact dermatitis or allergic reactions.

Another possibility is a cyst like stricture called milia. Although not quite common, milia on penis can be occasional findings in men. These are again harmless and can be treated simply by unroofing the with a tip of a needle and extracting the contents. This is often quick and painless procedure.

I would recommend you see your dermatologist for the correct diagnosis and treatment.
