Millions of men worldwide live with pearly penile papules, so if you have PPPs, the good news is that you’re not alone. While it’s true that pearly penile papules have no negative impacts on your health and are, for the most part, entirely painless, that’s not the issue. Instead, the issue is that they are noticeable and a huge source of embarrassment.
They are often mistaken for STDs, and many men have even found that PPPs negatively impact their intimate relationships. In short, PPPs can be a huge source of emotional discomfort, but what are pearly penile papules?
Pearly penile papules are small growths that form on the corona of the penis and, occasionally, alongside the frenulum (back of the penis). The pearly-white glow of the growths is why they’re called pearly penile papules.
It’s unknown what causes PPPs to form though they affect 1 in 5 men and usually occur around puberty. The growths that form are typically painless and won’t cause physical issues during intimate encounters. They are, however, noticeable, and so can often lead to a lack of confidence and confusion as they can be mistaken for STDs.
PPPs won’t disappear on their own, and we strongly recommend against home remedies, as these never work and usually always make the problem a lot worse. Instead, we highly recommend that you contact The PPP Clinic by completing our confidential form.
