Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) is also commonly known as Hirsuties papillaries coronae Glandis, and they are small bumps in the shape of a dome, which are either white or skin-coloured. They form on the rim and the head of the penis and are usually set in rows, either a single row or multiple rows. 

PPP can affect males of any age but specifically those aged between 16 and 45 can be affected by this condition. The PPP bumps are usually harmless and do not carry any visible symptoms with them. In addition they are non-cancerous and they are not of a sexually transmitted disease by themselves.  

Pearly Penile Papules – PPP Causes

There is not an agreed common cause for the appearance of PPP but many specialists point to the fact that they may occur due to an obstruction with one’s sweat glands. They are also found more commonly in uncircumcised men but do also affect circumcised boys but it’s rare. 

Pearly Penile Papules can be left as it is and does not usually require treatment. This is because the papules are not actually harmful to one’s physical body. However, they can be a problem psychologically, affecting one’s self-esteem etc. 

Dr Jha saysThey should be left alone & only considered for treatment if it is severely affecting someone’s mental wellbeing”.
