Let me preface by saying, I dont have insurance and i barely get by on my wages. Just keep this in mind.
About 2 months ago, I trimmed my "area" which I rarely do because it gets easily irritated. My skin is very sensitive in general. Even hot showers make me blotchy and red. Full disclosure, I have a very active sex life but with one regular partner at a time. Theres a lot of friction. Anyway, shortly after trimming, I noticed these teeny, tiny almost Whitehead looking bumps here and there on my shaft. Not clusters, not blistery looking, no redness, no pain, no itching or any physical discomfort whatsoever. I cant stress enough how tiny these bumps are and how non clustered they are. They're very spaced. All on like, the "top" part of my shaft, as in the side facing me, not underneath or near the head. They tend to disappear/become translucent when wet and when I'm erect. I've thought maybe folliculitis because I have very muscular legs and a big muscular butt and a tiny waist so my briefs fit tightly around that whole area. Some pairs are pretty constrictive. I move a lot. I have a physically active job, I'm constantly hiking and lifting weights. Rarely am I without undies on.

Anyway, I'm reasonably concerned seeing as how I do have an active sex life but no insurance. I know what warts look like, I know what herpes looks like. Doesnt look like either one of those things. But still, worried. Anyone have any experience with anything like this. Not really looking for the "bite the bullet and pay for a doctor visit" responses. Im smart enough to know that's an option I may have to visit. Just looking for a little peace of mind for the time being.

i think i know what you're describing. very likely just hair follicles/normal human anatomy. really nothing to be concerned about.

I have those bumps too. Looks like tiny ant bites? Mostly near the bottom of the shaft and disappears when you get to the head?

Like matisworried stated, I think they are hair follicles

Yeah, tiny ant bites is a great description. Like, the size of a pin head and sort of spread here and there. The thing that concerns me aside from it potentially stopping a woman in her tracks when she goes down there, is, it's been like this for almost 2 months.
