Question: small red bumps on head of penis

 thatguy08 - Tue Feb 26, 2008 1:25 pm

I'm 23 and for about a month I've been getting very small red bumps on the head of my penis. Sometimes there is a very mild irritation. It's not really an itching or burning one either. It almost feels like something is barely poking the inside of the head. I've researched every possible thing I can to figure out what it might be. I have not had sexual contact in about 11 months. I do not have isurance what so ever. So before I blew a lot of money I thought I try this first.
