hii i have a question i have some small like when you touch them it looks like warts it doesn't itch or anything ? what do you thinkis it ??

Answer
Sam,

If you're referring to those little bumps then they are more like pimples or papules as we like to call them. Your penis is fair play in terms of acne and this is no different; warts are a completely different creature and resemble fleshy growths that are pliable not like these. As with Fordyce's spots and sebaceous cysts on the genitals, do NOT pop these as they can infect and cause all sorts of nastiness because open wounds on the genitals heal at a much slower rate and bacteria can fester in the wound. They will eventually go away on their own, in time, but if you want an opinion on them then you can consult a dermatologist for removal. However, it is pretty costly from what I've been told.

Cheers,

John
