Brief Answer:
Hair follicle infection, Fungal infection,

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Hair follicle infection, Fungal infection, Pearly penile papules (which do not have a serious cause) should be considered in your case.

However, these have to be clearly distinguished from sexually transmitted like genital warts(caused by human papilloma viruses) and others. For this, a Physical examination is mandatory. If you had a risky sexual exposure, you need to get screened for some STDs as well.

Thanks!
