    Suggest treatment for bumps on shaft of penis

Posted on Thu, 2 Jun 2016 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hi, I just noticed a cluster of small smooth bumps on the shaft of my penis. Any thoughts? My sister is an ER nurse and while she was at work I sent her a picture of the area. She showed a doctor she's close with who said they did not look like genital warts or herpes. Still concerned though.

Hi, they don't seem to be fluid filled. They don't itch or hurt at all. I'm on a generic form of Tegetol for seizures called Carbambazine and just last week started taking vitamin E a ginkgo/ginseng supplement and arginine-L. I've never seen them before. I just noticed them last night after shaving the area. I've had the same partner for a year and before that my ex gf and I were together for 2 years. No sexual partners in between.

Brief Answer:
Look like seborrhoeic keratoses

Detailed Answer:

These bumps look like seborrhoeic keratoses which are benign growths of the skin.
These are harmless.
You may leave them as such though you can also get them removed for cosmetic reasons.
