Smooth pink bumps on penis, hair protruding from them. Treatment for ingrown hair?

I m a 56 year old male. This past August I noticed a couple of smooth, pink bumps on my penis . One had a hair growing out of the middle, the other had one out of the side. I didn t pay much attention then, now I have maybe 6-8 of these bumps. I actually caused one by pulling on a hair. It worries me that there are more of them, and most have a hair in or close, but a few them seem not to have any. Any clue what this might be?

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your description. I sincerely believe there is nothing wrong with the condition. Consider some of the following. Weather, sweating, underwear, soap etc

These are some of the issues that might cause the projected problems. They might be simple skin irritation or miliaria. Sweat glands do get irritated often.

Keep the hygiene of the private area for a week or so and see the result.

Hope this clears your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
