Hard to say w/o pic: Could be related to folliculitis, molluscum contagiosum, or viral warts. You'd need to be evaluated for any of these conditions by a physician. Don't worry about embarassment, we do this all day everyday!

Genital bumps: This is definitely not something you can fix yourself. What you need first is a diagnosis and you have no way to escape the dermatologist looking at this area to make that diagnosis. I know it is embarrassing, and you may think that yours is the only penis the dermatologist has ever seen, but that's grossly misleading and false. Go see a dermatologist as soon as you can and have them look at these.

Look up: Look up pink pearly penile papules. Look up Fordyce spots. Notice exactly where they are. If you find an exact description of your bumps, then you have a common, benign condition which should be ignored. If not, see a dermatologist. Even if you are embarrassed, you will want to be treated if you have warts!
