Brief Answer:
Could you upload an image of these spots for review?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for contacting us at healthcare magic.

I am so sorry to hear about these spots that you have reported. I understand how disturbing such spots could be on the penis. With such spots, seeing and reviewing is very important in making the right calls. This helps us avoid generic responses which may not exactly apply in your case. For this reason, I suggest that you upload an image to us for review. This way, I can send a personalized and helpful response to you. However, possible causes of such spots could be penile papules or to a lesser extent genital wart.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.

Brief Answer:
This looks as infected hair follicles!

Detailed Answer:
HI an thanks for uploading the image for review.

I have reviewed it and this looks very much like an infection of the hair follicles. I think your repeated picking on it has hampered any complete healing and has made it more of a recurrent issue.

My suggestion is that you stop picking on it often. If it persists unto when you have a scheduled appointment for something else, I will suggest that you report to the doctor and get it checked out.

Let me know if this works out for you. If there is something more you would have loved me to touch on, do not hesitate to bring it up for discussion.

Kind regards!
