Eliminate embarrassment and boost confidence
Did you know that an estimated 35 percent of the male population have pearly penile papules? And while these papules are not associated with any type of health risk, they can be unsightly. They tend to form around the head of the penis, with most of them displaying a pearly white color. If you have PPP, there’s no need to worry about passing them on to your sexual partners. However, you might find it odd when explaining the condition to a sexual partner as many people mistakenly identify the papules as a type of sexually transmitted disease. If you have PPP, you should not attempt to remove them by squeezing or picking at them. This can lead to the papules becoming enlarged, or possibly infected. The best method for having the papules removed is by taking advantage of targeted CO2 laser technology.
What to expect after Pearly Penile Papules treatment
While in recovery after targeted CO2 laser treatment, you should expect a bit of mild discomfort. You might experience scabbing and redness as well; however, almost all recovery symptoms will cease within two weeks.
Receiving a diagnosis
If you have noticed a penile pearly papule, you can go to either a regular physician or a dermatologist to receive a diagnosis. And while many doctors will suggest that you leave the papules alone because they don’t present any health risks, you can choose for yourself whether or not to take advantage of modern technology to have them removed.
Should you choose not to have the papules removed, you will of course want to inform your sexual partners beforehand that you have them. And being that they will likely want proof that a penile pearly papule is not a STD, you will want to visit a physician and receive documentation that you have been diagnosed with PPP.
When going to receive a diagnosis, it is imperative that you seek service from a doctor who has diagnosed PPP before. Doctors who lack experience may misdiagnose penile pearly papules as genital warts. Fortunately, though, testing can be performed to confirm whether or not you have PPP or genital warts.
