Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The skin colored bumps at the base of the penis could be Fordyce spots, Bowenoid papulosis, angiokeratoma, or a mole. Since this has not spread or cause further lesions or itch, possibility of fungal infection, STD or skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, lichen planus etc are less.

Fordyce spots are dilated blood vessels covered with skin and can heal on their own. The other possibility is pearly white papules. These are harmless swellings and disappear on their own. The third possibility is blocked sebaceous glands. These too often open up on their own.

I would suggest you refrain from touching them and watch then for another week or so. In all probability they will disappear on their own in 10-15 days. If not then consult a doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
