Black spots on the shaft of penis, itching. Masturbate occasionally. Diagnosed with balanitis

I have noticed several black spots on the shaft of my penis between the head and crotch area. This started yesterday and they measured about 1-2 mm in size. Now they are about twice the size and there are many more and they are a purple color now, like a bruise. They are starting to itch , as well. I haven't had sex for months, but do masturbate occasionally. I was diagnosed with balanitis 2 weeks ago, but that has cleared up and I shower more frequently now. I have a photo if I can get it to upload here.

Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as Fordcyes spots.

The penile l skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.

Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.
If needed some of them which are bigger may need to get excised in Toto (Completely along with the sac)

Ensure to clean your genitals with warm water twice daily.
