Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have developed sebaceoud cysts ove penis.
This area is rich in sebaceous glands hence prone for sebaceous to occur frequently due to accumulation of sebum below te skin.
Normally no treatment is required.However in case it gets infected you have to take antibiotic for a week. Please consult qualified surgeon for clinical assessment and further treatment .You may need to get it excised in Toto.
