Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) Treatment

Pearly Penile Papules PPP

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP)

Pearly Penile Papules (commonly called PPPs) are tiny skin coloured or white lumps that frequently appear around the edge of the head of the penis. Usually they run round the entire circumference of the “neck” of the penis. Sometimes, there are even 2 to 3 rows of lumps.

Pearly Penile Papules are NOT caused by sexual activity but are frequently mistaken for warts as they can look similar. Rarely PPPs are mistaken for Molluscum Contagiosum which is an STD.

Pearly Penile Papules are more common in men who are not circumcised.

Pearly Penile Papules are most commonly found in men in their 20’s and 30’s.

Pearly Penile Papules typically do not disappear on their own and will remain throughout a man’s life.

Pearly Penile Papules are not associated with diet or personal hygiene.

Pearly Penile Papules are completely harmless. They are actually just bits of excess skin. Nobody knows what causes it.

However, Pearly Penile Papules can cause significant mental and emotional distress due to their appearance. In fact, it may also cause sexual partners to worry and suspect that they are due to some sort of infection.

For these reasons, some patients are keen to get them removed.

 

Pearly Penile Papules (PPPs) removal procedure

 

Removing Pearly Penile Papules is a simple and straightforward procedure. It can be done in our clinics.

First, our doctor will examine the PPPs to ensure that they are truly Pearly Penile Papules and not other issues like HPV warts.

We then apply a numbing cream and leave it on for a while.

Once the area is sufficiently numbed, we use a machine to gently zap away the PPPs.

The entire process is painless. The Pearly Penile Papules are gone immediately after the treatment.

Healing is extremely fast. Most patients are completely healed well within 1 week of the procedure.

Recurrence of Pearly Penile Papules after the procedure is very rare.

Pearly Penile Papules (PPPs) removal is available at our clinics. If you wish to have your PPPs removed please contact us for an appointment.
