Dear XXXXXX,
Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX
Small pearly white glistening bumps on glans are most likely to be fordyce spots and are normal for the organ. These might increase or decrease, change areas but are absolutely harmless and also might swell up in active sexual like.
They dont require any treatment.

Regards

Hi Dr XXXXXXX

Thanks for the quick revert. Like I've also mentioned I've had oral sex last December and I was worried this might be STI.

Sure its nothing to worry right?

Fordyce spots are not related to sexual encounters and are not contagious. they are not a STD.
