Regarding lesions on penis

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.

Fordyce spots can be left as it is. They are a normal finding in many.
The red, raised spots on underside of penis are most likely HPV warts. They need to be removed with either electrosugery or Laser.

Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be penile papules

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Penile papules are usually quite distinctively arranged circumferentially all around on the corona of glans penis. Whereas these are quire far from the corona and don't exactly look like penile papules.
