On the Internet, there is no shortage of people peddling information –and much misinformation about Pearly Penile Papules. As with most things, there is always someone trying to put a spin on something if they stand to make some money or increase their ratings, etc.

It is so normal that if your penis is graced with PPP, you are in good company, as millions of other young and middle aged men are graced with it too. By some estimates, as many as 30 % (or more) of the population (in the age bracket) have this condition.

You can expect Penile Papules to diminish as you age. I am in my upper middle age and it’s been gone for a while now. Most people are generally uneasy with Penile Papules, at least at some time in their life –usually, I suspect during the years when searching for a mate.


Once properly identified so you’re certain what it is (and not something worse) you can really forget about it.

I am aware that not everyone sees the humor in that. I’ll attempt to give you all the information needed for you to come to terms with it, if you would, or, so you can determine what the next step is for you. Some people choose not to deal with the papules and actively seek methods to rid themselves of the problem.

There really is no need to remove the papules, unless for aesthetic reasons, which is the usual reason stated. Guys don’t like PPP, because it is, or could be perceived to be unsightly. It can cause self-consciousness, problems with self-esteem in some and cause your new girlfriend to wonder about it, aloud, from a safe distance.

If you are hell-bent on getting rid of the adornment, be sure and do it safely -some methods have ‘convalescence periods’ and/or possible side effects. There are some methods of removal that are benign and reliable. Read more about them here:

Pearly Penile Papules are small, white, pimple-like protrusions, not unlike a ‘skin tag.’ They show up in groups of many, arranged in rows around the circumference of the base of the glans, or corona, of the penis. There are variations as can be seen in this dermatology atlas collection of photos. Click the link for photos. Be forewarned -these are graphic photos, not suitable for all eyes. Photos HERE

One study in the UK surveyed 188 college students under the age of 25 and 70 patients over the age of 50. The study was to determine the prevalence and to compare the related information regarding size of the papules and how widely spread they were in each case. The PPP was categorized from one to four according to increasing size and distribution of the papules.

In the under-25 age group, the prevalence of Penile Papules was 26.5% in circumcised men and slightly over 42% in uncircumcised men. The findings were not related to frequency of sexual intercourse, nor to elapsed time since first sexual intercourse.

One advisory that came out of the study was to uncircumcised men. In order to maximize exposure of the coronal area to normal abrasion, men could be advised to wear the foreskin rolled back. The extra abrasion that occurs may shorten the time it takes for the PPP to go away.
