bumps concentrated around hair follicles on penis

Hi,

I have bumps mostly only noticeable when the skin is pulled tight on my penis and scrotum. They tend to be mainly located where there is more pubic hair growing at the base of the penis and testicles. I can definitely say the hair follicles at the base are more noticeable than usual. It's mildly irritating similar to the itch you get if you trim your pubic hair. Also, I've noticed it doesn't necessarily bother me until I'm walking and being active.

I'm 24 and Sexually active (mostly safe with condoms). I'm concerned it may be an STD (Genital Warts?), although it doesn't seem to match any descriptions or pictures. Any thoughts, opinions, tips would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks

Sounds like normal genital skin to me, we are not perfectly smooth down there. If it really concerns you, you should see a health care provider.

Agreed, this doesn't sounds like anything other than how testicles actually look.
