Brownish spots on the penis. No STD. Could this be from shaving?

Hello, my boyfriend recently got two small brown spots on the shaft of his penis one is raised and one is not they're pretty small but not exactly dots. One would mistake them for a mole or a beauty mark. We've had sex like 3-4 times throughout today. There is absolutely no chance of an std, either. Well, not on my part anyway. What could they be? Also, we shaved yesterday around our genitals

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your boy friend has developed brown spots on the shaft of the penis very recently.
Most liklely these are Fordeyce spots or sebaceous cysts which occur due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they subside of their own without any treatment .Please consult qualified general surgeon for clinical examination and to confirm the diagnosis.
