Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) Causes and Treatments Revealed By Experts

There is one thing for sure why you’re reading this article, right now. Probably, you have pearly penile papules also known and abbreviated as PPP and you want to get rid of it, or you might just want to know more about it for some research purposes. There are certain paid guides out there telling how to cure PPP, but that’s what not the real experts are telling about it.

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP)

Pearly penile papules(PPP) are small bumps along the penis glans line with color similar to skin or sometimes a little more discolored. This is a type of skin condition, which only affects the skin and it is not a kind of disease neither it is contagious or spread through sexual activity. PPP is not an STD either, so you don’t need to worry about especially that doctors have determined PPP as harmless and benign. It only affects this part of the penis without any external factors influencing its presence there.

Dr George Forgan-Smith explains what more about pearly penile papules and among other common penis lumps that could occur including penile warts, herpes, and syphilis.

The cause of pearly penile papules is still unknown. The only thing experts know and certain is it harmless, as mentioned earlier. Just as with any numerous skin conditions, it could disappear by itself, but only time can tell. This means while you age, the number or quantity of these small bumps decreases significantly, eventually could disappear completely. Additionally, there would be time when bumps appear are fewer and certain times when it increases in numbers.

Seeking Medical Treatment

One thing to note when it comes to PPP is this condition cannot be treated with any sort of creams, etc except for a medical procedure through process known as CO2 laser treatment. However, opting for a laser treatment can be costly, although the treatment can be painless and with the right dermatologist to perform it, certainly no infection or other complications can happen.

If financial is the issue for laser treatment, just leave it there, you’re not alone in that condition, anyway; and the only thing could be an issue is when you have sexual intercourse with your female partner and she is not well-informed about the condition. She might not feel comfortable with it. If that happens to you, just send her over to this article for educational purposes. On the other hand, if you’re a female reading this article, you’re now aware this condition is quite normal for many men, and the condition is harmless and benign.

Another thing that cannot be avoided on men with PPP, they consider it a very delicate issue, and they can’t be blame for it. In fact, majority of men who experienced it find it difficult to talk about it and refrain from consulting a doctor. This is one of those conditions in which may make older men blush with shame and discomfort. Mainly, this is the reason why a lot of men suffers from it search online for information about how to get rid of it. However, as mentioned earlier, this is perfectly fine and normal condition, and any man who has it should not worry about it.

Here’s another case in person with pearly penile papules covered on of the episodes at The Doctors Show.

Home Treatments For Penile Papules

While medical professionals have been telling us there is no need to worry about it, still the irresistible urge for men who has it seek ways to naturally get rid of it. Of course, laser treatment has been proven effective, but it is not for everyone’s wallet. Also, the urge to get rid of it even though it’s perfectly fine and normal is due to lack of information about the condition, and somewhat result to low sexual confidence.

Here presented are some of the common and homemade pearly penile cures, but take note, these are not approved by medical experts and only use it at your own risk. Among these homemade remedies are applying either of the following to the affected part; tea tree oil, castor oil, Alpha hydroxyl acid(AHA), toothpaste, etc. Others are even employing bizarre method like urine therapy. Also, it is worth noting there are no available creams to treat PPP.

Personally, I have PPP, but since I know they’re harmless and benign, I never tried any of these home treatment methods. Of course, I do apply certain lubricant sometimes when doing Jelqing, but not for the purpose of getting rid of these pimple-like bumps on my glans.

In case you want to try any of these mentioned home remedies, here’s what you need to do step-by-step.

  • Step 1 – Pick or choose a home remedy you are comfortable using with such as any of those mentioned earlier ((castor oil, tea tree oil, etc). Don’t mix them all, just pick one and try it, and observe the progress.

  • Step 2 – Clean/wash the penis especially the area on the glans where PPP are located

  • Step 3 – Dry it using a towel

  • Step 4 – Apply a small amount of the above mentioned home treatment.

  • Step 5 – Allow the applied remedy to remain for a few minutes to maximum of 2 hours, then rinse it.

  • Step 6 – If there is no irritation occurs, increase the amount of time say 5 hours. Otherwise, if irritation occurs switch to a different remedy. Or, if irritation persist, better leave it as is. They’re harmless, btw.

  • Don’t get caught on these information being sold online claiming to be able to cure PPP in just a few days. Of course, it might work on some men, but might not on some.

    From my personal point of view, there is nothing to worry about it. I’m circumcised and I’ve noticed I have it since I was 12 or 13. Although, doctors say it is common on uncircumcised men, but I do have it even I’m cut. Instead of worrying about it, you better approach it with confidence and accept it is something normal and harmless.

    When I had my first sexual encounter, I was worried as perhaps my partner would examine it closely and eventually refrain from having sex. Fortunately, it was not the case, and later I had to show and tell her about such pimple-like bumps on my glans and asked if she saw something similar previously. She she had not, and didn’t bother anymore worrying and asking about it.

    Experience with other women is the same, or I just got lucky. Well, perhaps not and it might not be big deal for majority of women out there especially if they know about the condition. What you need to work on and focus is to be able to last longer, and give her the most amazing orgasm every time. Trust me, if you could do that, those pearly penile papules are history.
