This : This is very difficult to answer without a clinical examination so i would follow up with a dermatologist. Perhaps this is folliculitis, lichen planus, psoriasis, warts, another std, or eczema, or other possibilities? Read more about these conditions and see a picture at the link below. I hope that helps!

You : You need to go back to your physician or another specialist who is able to perform a biopsy on your penis to determine exactly what the "pimples" are. Sometimes, the peace of mind of having a diagnosis is very comforting, and can rule out harmfull conditions. There are pearly penile papules which many people find physically concerning, but are totally harmless, however, usually these type of papules have been present for longer than 4 months. Neosporin has neomycin & Bacitracin in it, both of which have been allergens of the year and could contribute to a worsening of the problem.
