Question: Pearly Penile Paules very noticeable

 seventeen - Sat Jan 05, 2008 11:42 pm

I am an 18 year old male and I am a virgin. The pearly penile papules on my penis are very noticeable and are even more noticeable when I have an erection. Is there any way to make pearly penile paules less noticeable. Can you please help me.

User avatar Hi Seventeen,

There are no medical treatments that I am aware of for pearly penile papules. As you probably know, other than being a cosmetic issue they are not dangerous. There are some surgery/laser treatments that can be done by your doctor if you desire.

For these treatments you may need a referral to a dermatologist if your primary doctor does not perform them.

Best wishes.
