small bump on shaft of penis, smaller hardly noticable bumps on what was foreskin (before circumsicion)

    I had unprotected sex several times in the last year. Within the past 4 months, one small skin colored bump appeared on the shaft of my penis. I picked at it, thinking it might just go away, it seems to have grown a very little bit, maybe from the trauma of aggressively picking at it. It has stayed roughly the same size since that incident. It is painless. Also, I have several very small bumps on the underside of my penis, near the area where my foreskin would have been (below the head). They are very very small and you can't see them unless you pull the skin very far apart and look in good light. Also, it is notable that I have been masturbating without lotion for perhaps 5-6 months, for whatever reason, daily or bi-daily. At times I have suffered some very temporary irritation down there from prolonged dry masturbation. I'm wondering if it's possible these little bumps could be calluses from my prolonged dry masturbatory behavior? I'm super worried obviously about all of this. What do you think? Thank you so so much for your time!!!!

Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be folliculitis,cysts , some benign growth  or genital warts(caused by HPV infection).

Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You  can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
