Bumps on shaft and scrotum of penis, what are they? (Photo)

I've had these white bumps on both the shaft and scrotum of my penis since I was a kid. They don't bother me, but I would like to know what they are? Is there any treatment available with no scaring?

These are call fordyce spots and are due to dilated oil glands.  Nothing to worry about it.  Wish you the best, Dr. Emer.
