Ever noticed very small bumps along the outer edges of your penis? Think you might have a STD? Too embarrassed to talk about it with your doctor, girlfriend, or wife? You are not alone. In fact, around 60% of all adult males have this same issue.
But what are they? Do I really have a STD? How can I get rid of them?
Let’s tackle all of these tough questions.
What are they?
These little bumps are called Pearly Penile Papules otherwise known as Hirsuties papillaris genitalis or just simply PPP. These are small, white colored skin tags that only form on the penis gland. The cause of these skin tags is unknown at the moment, but most say it’s just swollen or blocked sweat glands.
Here is a clear picture:
Pearly Penile Papule Facts:
– These are not related to poor hygiene or sexual activity.
– They only occur in men.
– These bumps cannot be spread by sexual activity.
– Pearly Penile Papules are quite common with some reports saying 48-60% of adult males have them.
– Sensitivity may, or may not be a problem.
– Better yet, these are not caused by a STD.
How can I get rid of them?
Well many men have tried painfully picking the bumps off with tweezers (ouch!). This will cause even more irritation and potentially an infection so this is definitely not recommended. Plus, they will come back eventually. There are other remedies such as home freezing kits. Again, this is not a great option and the papules will eventually reappear anyway even after you suffer through freezing your manhood.
The current medical option is surgery. Laser surgery to be more exact, but good luck trying to get your insurance to pay for this since it’s almost always considered a cosmetic operation and not a health issue related surgery. Also, try explaining the procedure to the insurance agent on the phone. It’s even more embarrassment and hassle then you need. The removal cost of this operation is very high and again most likely 100% of the cost will come out of your wallet.
In fact, most physicians will just tell you to live with them since they are harmless. Harmless to them maybe, but the self esteem and embarrassment can be too great to live with. Can you image telling your next girl friend.
