I have had some bumps at the base of my shaft for some time. When I first notice them, they were small, itchy, flesh colored bumps. I went to a doctor and was told that they were just ingrown hairs, since most of them are at the base of hairs. They have since spread, and grew in size. They look like craters when not stretched, but when skin is stretched are bumps and look like it has a hole in the center. I tried squeezing them and some yellowish/white waxy discharge comes out. They are always there and don't go away. I looked at some pics online and might think that they are Molluscum contagiosum. I don't know when exactly I first notice them, and where I got them from.
