I've had these pimple like bumps on my penis for about 2 weeks now, I tried to pop a few which I probably shouldn't have, and they don't hurt unless after I tried to pop it, and don't itch, but seem to get more red when touched. I definitely have Fordyce on my scrotum, perhaps that's all it is? any ideas?

Hi Mike,

You have a virulent form of the condition, but yes it is Fordyce's. Pleasseeeeeeeee don't pop them!!! If you want to get rid of them, visit a dermatologist and they can help you out, but you risk permanent scarring if you keep doing that!

Best wishes,


Sexually Transmitted Diseases
