Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. Small red dots on the glans and shaft of the penis are likely angiokeratomas of Fordyce. These are produced as a result of the deformities of the capillaries (small blood vessels). These are not infectious and require no treatment. Anyhow, I’ll suggest consulting a dermatologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
