hello does one of my opening of my urethra look inflamed possibly? I am not sure it might have always been like this. I dont really look at it a lot just curious. Also these red bump on penis head or bumps on there is that anything as well? rim

Your urethral opening looks completely normal to me. And the bumps are called papules. I just answered this question for another young man and wanted to suggest to him to watch them to see if they grow or look like anything other than a bubble as this could be a cluster of Fordyce's and those should be checked to make sure they don't develop into cancer. I wouldn't worry about the worst case scenario though! If you have further concerns, consider asking your primary care provider for further information and stay safe my friend.
