I just checked yesterday pulling my foreskin ( Think they were present since long time ) . I am worried if this is some disease . please suggest me best action.

Thank you.,

Symptoms:  White pimple like spots under penis head
Doctor

A:   Thanks for your question.

They may be most likely just blocked oil-secreting glands in the skin.
They are not red or itchy are they? If they are then they might be a yeast infection – thrush.
If they aren't and they've been there as long as you can remember they are probably just these sebaceous glands – not a disease.

Hope this helps.
