Thank you for asking

I read your question and I understand your concern. These small bumps are likely clogged sebaceous pores and common in uncircumcised penises. Apply topical hydrocortisone and avoid popping picking or poking. It self resolves and are perfectly innocuous.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purposes only.

Take care
