Wondering what these red bumps at base of penis could be? (photo)

I have raised red bumps at base of my penis, not itchy and not sore. Tried cortisone cream for about 5 days but no change, not spreading and not going away, its been about 5 weeks now. I have looked at pictures of molluscum and folicalitus but I'm not sure that what I am presenting appears to be either. I'm wondering what else this may be?

Looks as if you have molluscum, please see a dermatologist to have them removed.  There are many treatments available.  I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
