I have a question and I hope you could answer it or give me advice. I noticed maybe about 3 years ago that I have tiny white bumps on the rim of my head. I am not circumcised so I never really paid attention to them because they don't bother me whatsoever-there's no itch or pain. I am 20 years old and I've only had oral sex with 4 girls, I have never had "real" sex. I also can't remember if I had them before the first time I had oral sex, I'm just not sure. Do you know what this might be and should I do something about it? Thank you.
It is hard to determine what these bumps are without seeing them. The dimensions, the number, and if they happen in clusters would help a lot. The bumps are not due to an acute infection because of the lack of itching and pain. If they appear in clusters, then you might be experiencing genital warts. You might want to visit a dermatologist to determine the exact diagnosis.
