Small red pumps above penis shaft


Q: I am a 23 year old male and am very sexually active. Sometimes safe sometimes not. I don't have regular sex with strangers but have had strangers in the past. I always check around my self because of this reason but am far too embarrassed to get checked. I noticed small pimple like bumps lined in my pubic area above the penis shaft. No other signs have appeared however these small bumps seem to arise slowly over the past year or so? I do shave regularly however only with clippers not with a blade. I was just curious if this is a sign of symptoms or possibly just sweat rash marks or what? I am posting from a phone so it will not allow me to upload a picture. Please respond to email and I will send attachment
