What causes bumps on penis head and discomfort penis?

i have flesh colored what look like swollen bumps on the head of my penis. They are not very big or terribly noticeable. I feel like i have to pee a lot. I have slight burning/discomfort only on the head area of my penis. It does not burn when I pee. I have no discharges. Other then that everything looks normal. Is this just a rash? Or could it be an STD? I m 33.

Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be most likely due to yeast infection. But if you have unprotected sex with risky partner then you should run STD tests to rule out those. If you were my patient with yeast infection then i would suggest using miconazole ointment for local application. Soaps and antiseptics should be avoided as it may increase irritation. You can use saline or warm water instead of that.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.

Hi, I have just recently discovered these bumps on my penis. There is a small one on my head, and two bumps larger in diameter below that. There is no discharge, no burning. It just itches really bad. There is no head on these bumps. But I have just recently started a new job in a fiberglass plant about two months ago. It is very very hot inside of my work, sometimes reaching 120 degrees. And I sweat all day long, especially on my pelvic region. So I believe that it is heat bumps or heat rash. No signs of STD s

Im having bumps on my penis not on the head but on the shaft. When i pop them clear water like pus comes out. Then they scab over but it fills back up a few times prior to scabbing. I had it happen once before i just used soap and water constantly and it went away for a little over a month but it has returned. It started out a few bumps, now its multiplied. I havent had sex in 6 months and the first breakout was a month after I stopped having sex.
