Pearly Penile Papules PPP

If you suffer from Pearly Penile Papules (PPP), you’d know all about the traumatic effect of these annoying white dome-shaped pimples around the head of the penis. They would have developed around the age of puberty and they are not going away anytime soon. Although they may not be painful, contagious or cause any harm, they can still affect you psychologically. The condition is estimated to affect 16% of men. The more erect the penis is, the more prominent the papules become. They become most pointed at climax. As a result, pearly penile papules, PPP are considered by people affected by the condition to be a major cause of sexual encounter anxiety.

PPP sufferers are self-conscious of their condition and many are shy to talk about it. I have encountered men who chose to single because of it. Many sufferers are tempted to self-remedy the condition by picking the papules in the hope that this will rid of them; this is a terrible mistake.

Scarring risk

Picking or even worse, cutting the papules will not effectively treat this harmless skin condition, and could even lead to scarring around the penis that cannot be treated as effectively as PPP can. Sufferers need specialist experienced help at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin. It may be a discomfort to have these small white spots around your penis, but lifetime scars will certainly not be an improvement on the condition.

Typically, the area where PPP is located is very sensitive, so not only will picking your pearly penile papules hurt, it could also lead to inflammation, bleeding and infection. Inflamed papules could burst and make the area infected, and although this will heal in time, you will be left with the irregularities to remember it by. Don’t pick them.

Picking not effective

Due to the sheer number of your PPP, picking them is not an effective means of removal. Picking will not ultimately solve the condition; even if you were to pick some of the papules off yourself, many will still remain. There are medically proven methods that will effectively remove your PPP, such as a shortwave diathermy and fractional CO2 laser, which only takes around an hour.

Be wary of internet search

Hopefully you are at an age to understand the exploiting effects of the internet. A quick internet search will bring up various other home treatment methods, including caustic agents like castor oil, and alpha hydroxy acid peels, but unfortunately none of these are really proven to work and you could be waiting a long time before you see any kind of real results, let alone the possible uncontrolled burn to the head of the penis.
