I am a gay 19 year old male, sexually active. I always use a condom (a couple of exceptions were people I was in long term relationships with). About thirteen days ago, while masturbating, I discovered several pimple like bumps on the upper part of my shaft. They almost immediately flaked off and scabbed over and now there is just a scar where one of them used to be. About 5 days ago, I noticed another small bump near where this was different. It is sometimes skin colored but mostly its red, especially after fussing with it. A couple more popped up in different parts too but these are pretty light colored but can become red with irritation. they are all very small. They do not pop. When I am erect, you can hardly feel them or see them. They do not itch at all and I was recently tested for STDs and came back negative for everything. yesterday, after masturbating, I noticed a small pin sized dot on the the head of my penis which appeared right after masturbating. I tried applying apple cider vinegar to test for warts but there wasn't a change. The bump on my penis head looks like it is going away now. The other three bumps still remain. Any ideas what's going on?

I'd like to reiterate that all of these things are very small and really only noticeable to me. If i stretch the skin, the bumps almost disappear.

As we are not doctors, we cannot really tell you what is going on here. The best thing do with things like wierd bumps is always to have them checked out by a doctor, and to have them checked while they are still there so the doctor can take a look and figure out what's up.

Thanks for the reply Joey. In case I did not make this clear enough in my original post, I have gone to the doctor and was tested. Everything was negative... and she claimed it was non infectious. I am posting on here to get some answers as a couple of weeks ago, these small bumps were not present.

Were these bumps present when you saw the doctor? Have you been to see a doctor specifically about these bumps?

yes and yes, she said they looked non infectious... this is completley possible but is a tiny bump sometimes just a bump?

Yep, sure is.

They can be Fordyce spots, ingrown hairs or infected pores (AKA, plain old zits), swollen sweat glands, and number of things that aren't infections nor anything to be concerned about.
