Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Sebaceous Cysts over your Penis.
This area is rich in sebaceous glands and hence more prone to develop Sebaceous Cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally no treatment is required as they fade away themselves. However need to be treated if increase in size to give discomfort or get infected..
