Here are some...: To verify if what you've observed in glans penis is related with tight long foreskin, see urologist timely so to reach right Dx for right care; if not related with foreskin or not pearly penile papules along penile corona, circumcision is needed for long-term care, but currently, improve topical hygiene with adequate cleansing & drying + judicious use of topical ant-fungal - steroid cream.

Small red bumps that appeared out of nowhere today on the head on my penis and when I pull back the foreskin. They don't really hurt or itch?

Small red bumps that appeared out of nowhere today on the head on my penis and when I pull back the foreskin. They don't really hurt or itch?

Bumps on penis: It would be useful to know, if you have any other signs or symptoms along with these red dots like itching, fever, swelling of head of penis (glans penis). The shape and contour of the said red dots is also important. Also as per you description, you noticed them after having sex. This may indicated a sexually transmitted infection. If they are red rash like spots with itching and/or swelling of head, then it could be an yeast (candida) infection. Small blister like lesions with pain and fever may strongly indicate a herpes infection. Molluscum contagiosum infection can appear as small bumps with central depression. Also, genital warts due HPV (Human papilloma virus) infection can present as small pink/red bumps over penis.

Here are some...: Without a direct look at, it is hard to draw a conclusion for diagnosis and treatment, but clinically, such bumps are most likely related with long foreskin with inflammatory change on foreskin or/& glans penis - called balanoposthitis or posthitis if involving foreskin only or balanitis if glans penis only. More? Ask doc, preferably urologists.

On the back of the tip of the penis I have two small white areas of skin (discolored) and they have little little red bumps in them. Never had sex.

Cysts: these are called penile cyst, women get them, ie, vaginal cysts. They are benign, not sexually transmitted and usually go away. However, I would have them checked anyway. Either you go see your primary doctor, or send us a picture to review and privacy.
