I have small painless bumps all over my penis

Last updated on October 8, 2020


I have a cluster of small and painless bumps all over my penis, I’ve had them for about 2 years. They don’t itch and there’s a red dot in the center if they get irritated, but they’re mostly all skin-colored. Will they go away?


You have to remember that since I can’t see what you see and because there are numerous causes of bumps, I can only guess a few possibilities.

Fordyce Spots

My first inclination is that you are seeing Fordyce spots, which are normal. See Fordyce Spots.

Lichen Nitidus

Another possibility is Lichen Nitidus. These are small, shinny spots with flat tops. These are harmless and do not require treatment.
