Pearly Penile Papules or PPP are a genital condition only affecting men, manifesting in around 30% of the male population across the globe. There is no well-determined cause for the appearance of Pearly Penile Papules, except a greater incidence being noticed in uncircumcised young men. This condition may also disappear on its own, but it usually takes too much time, or reappears after some period.
The small, dome-shaped PPP are asymptomatic, non-contagious, never malignant and have no connection to personal hygiene. They are simply unaesthetic skin growths that can affect men’s sexual life and self-esteem due to the fact that the PPP are generally confused with genital warts or other types of STDs, the sufferers becoming anxious about their nature.
The best solution in the Pearly Penile Papules diagnosis is seeing a specialist who can ensure a thorough visual check-up and recommend you the treatment that best suits you, but not before assessing your medical history and current health condition to prevent possible future complications or side-effects and also to ensure the optimum results the patient expects.
