User avatar Hello,

These bumps could be due to:
- Sebaceous cysts (epidermal cysts). Due to obstruction of the glands forming sebum (fat) forming a closed sac under the skin.

Sebaceous cysts usually present in the form of:
painless, slow-growing small bumps or lumps containing a yellow cheesy" substance.

- Folliculitis is an infection of the hair follicles. Forming small, white-headed Bumps in hair follicles (roots).
Lesions may be Itching. Superficial folliculitis resolves spontaneously in a few days, while deep or recurring folliculitis should be medically treated.

-Contact Dermatitis occurs due to skin contact with a substance that causes an allergic reaction (allergic contact Dermatitis)
or with an irritant substances (irritant contact Dermatitis). This could be also due to irritation from a discharge. Itching may be present.

Other causes due to STD like warts should be excluded although less likely to be the cause.

Direct clinical examination is essential.
Best regards.
