Small HPV like bumps on the shaft of my penis, had even prior to sexual activity. Just barely off skin color. Smaller when erect. Any idea? I am 16

Allergic reaction: Itchy bumps on the wrist usually means that you got something on your wrist that you are allergic to.
You are on prednisone. This should help them to go away more quickly. Hydrocotisone 1% cream might help and does not require a prescription.
