Welcome to EHEALTH forum!
Do these dotes look like dome-shaped growths, with overlying surface slightly scaly?

Do you feel some sensation at the scrotal skin, like itching?
Are these black dots located at the same place where hair grows?

It does not hurt or itch, and i don't feel anything at the dots.
Those dots do not have hair growing out at it, hair grows near it, but does not grow in it.

This could be a fungal infection.
Check it with your GP.
There is no need to be shy.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These black dots are known as angiokeratoma of fordyce. These are harmless skin lesions.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
