Thanks for asking in healthcaremagic forum
Your description seems mst likely to be fordyce's spots. Fordyce's spots are visible sebaceous glands over there and are harmless. Please stop meddling with it if it is not causing you any harm. You can consult dermatologist if it is of cosmetic concern. It is not related to sexual ability in future. All the best.
