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" or comedones (plugged skin pore, plugged hair follicle) but other times they may be from viruses like HPV or molluscum. For unusual rashes, a skin biopsy may be done by a dermatologist.
