Normal variant: A couple of small bumps on the penis (especially on the underside near the head of the penis) are usually just prominent sebaceous glands or hair follicles that sometimes become more prominent with local irritation. The other less likely though not uncommon cause of 'bumps' are genital warts (hpv). If concerned, your medical doctor or a urologist can most lkely provide an accurate diagnosis.

Possible irritation: Small bumps on the head of the penis, especially in an uncircumcised male, most often either a normal variation or minor self-limiting irritation that resolves with good mild soap and water hygiene and avoidance of local irritants. Less often due to a bacterial or fungal/yeast infection - most commonly in diabetics and associated with redness, whitish discharge, and discomfort which may require rx.

Doctor can look: Bumps and rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor, a urologist, or a dermatologist can examine penis bumps to see what they might be. Sometimes rashes are normal bumps like "pearly papules", but other times they may be from viruses like hpv or molluscum. For unusual rashes, a skin biopsy may be done by a dermatologist.
