White bumps on dogs genitals :( (pics)

Greetings dog lovers! I have a bichon-poodle who is about 6 years old now. Just over the weekend I noticed he was licking himself in his genital area far more than he normally does. So we took a closer look and found white bumps on his penis and some around his testicles (not neutered).
I read reasons for dogs being itchy in this area and I came across possibly a yeast infection or 'hot spots' (urine). I am taking him to the vet tomorrow.
Just would like to know if anyone happens to know this issue, and if it is contagious?
Much appreciated!

Do you have a diagnosis yet? I wonder if they are flea bites? I see what might be flea frass on him. Looks nasty and uncomfortable if the poor boy is itchy.

ETA: LOL, first thought was this was going to be a glandis bulbus post.

hey guys, thanks for your concern! I took him and it turned out to be some sort of allergic reaction, we were given a oily gel to relieve the itch and kill any bacteria on the affected area

2 days ago we began applying it and his drastic itching has died down
