I have hard pimple-like bump on my penis skin, but no white head, what could this be?

I have hard pimple-like bump on my penis skin, but no white head, what could this be?

May be ...: A bump from pimple (1- 1.5 mm) - hyperactive hair-follicle-related sebaceous gland, usually has its white head visible, but at times, can be a "black" head. But, it's harmless as long as being asymptomatic and remaining stable in size. But, if still in doubt, see urologist timely for confirmation. Online guess is not always accurate. ...Read more

I'm just getting over a sty but i now have hard pimple like bumps on my stomach, hips, and legs. They do not itch but some are tender.

Not related: The sty of the eyelid usually resolves with hot compresses. As for the unrelated bumps elsewhere, i believe they be keratosis pilaris and may feel better with moisturizing lotion & creams, and sometimes better with exfoliation lotions. However, to be certain, an examination of your skin would be necessary. A family doctor may be all that is necessary, or if particularly stubborn, a dermatologist. ...Read more

There are two or three pimple like bumps that have popped up on the top of my head. They are really hard? What is this? They don't hurt.

Scalp?: If on the scalp, they're probably sebaceous cysts. If on the forehead, could be acne or warts. See your doctor to get it taken care of. ...Read more
