No effect on erectio: Are they Fordyce spots or are they pearly penile papules? Either way they are harmless and best ignored.

No effect or: erections. Fordyce spots are enlarged oil glands & a completely normal part of anatomy. They are bumps found on edge of lips, inside cheek (whitish/yellow), or on labia or penis/ scrotum (red color) that are usually 1 to 3 mm in diameter.

Not sure: Your question is not very clear. Craving for what? Food exercise, etc? Usually cravings are caused by repeated use of a substance, i.E caffeine, chocolate, etc; your body gets used to this; the best thing is to wean yourself off. You can go cold turkey or slow wean. Drink water because most things are dehydrating, chart to see triggers: menstrual cycle, moods, weather etc to prepare yourself.
