Sexually Transmitted Diseases/bumps on genitals


Hi, Im 18 and I have these bumps all over my testicles and around my penis. I've had these bumps as long as I can remember, I don't know if they are pimples, I have popped some and they seem like pimples, I take a shower everyday, my hygiene is good. I haven't had sex yet so I know It can't be a STD, and I went to my doctor and he said that it was nothing and said he couldn't do anything about, but said if I wanted to make sure that I should go see a dermatologist. So what do you think I should do?! Or what do you think it is?

Sounds like papules to me, which are completely normal and not indicative of any harmful disease. They are part of your skin cells and come and go as they please. You can also get acne on your penis and shaft, however, they don't normally contain sebaceous (oil-producing) fluid. Its just a part of your anatomy and I'm afraid the doctor is right; there's nothing you can do! Stay safe my friend.
