Pearly Penile Papules Removal
Pearly Penile Papules is a benign and harmless condition affecting up to 10-30% of young males in some studies and are only significant because they cause a lot of anxiety to young men and often their partners.
They are not caused by infection, disease or poor hygiene and are not sexually transmitted nor can they be transmitted to others. They are considered to be a variant of normal.
Characteristically, they are clusters of small rounded or elongated skin-coloured papules (bumps) distributed in rows along the corona of the glans (head) of the penis. They do not normally go away on their own although their appearance may reduce with age.
Will it be painful to remove PPP?
The removal process is simple, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied for 30 minutes to numb the area and then the laser is used to vaporise and remove the papules. The removal procedure is quick, usually around 10 minutes. After removal, you will simply apply an ointment for a week until they are healed.
Normal sexual activity can be resumed once the area has fully healed.
