If you’ve developed Pearly Penile Papules, among your first thoughts may be – is it contagious, and is there a risk I can pass it on to my partner? The good news is there’s no need for alarm or worry, as these blister-type bumps surrounding the head of your penis are not contagious at all.
Pearly Penile Papules, or PPP, are completely harmless and benign, and develop in some 20 percent of men. There are no associated health risks with PPP, not even any irritation in the genital area. However, despite this, many men want to get rid of PPP when they appear, if nothing else other than to improve their aesthetic look and revert to the way they were previously.
It’s important to note, though, that although PPP Is not a contagious disease or even condition, some genital infections that are transmitted during sexual activity are, and their appearance can be similar to PPP. So the best advice is to first clarify whether you actually have PPP or indeed something else entirely.
If your doctor has confirmed that you have PPP you will be relieved to know that there is no possibility for passing it on to anyone else and you can get on with your life. You will probably want to explore several remedies or solutions for PPP removal, but not all are the same or as effective.
Some GPs may not, in fact, take PPP seriously in terms of treating the condition, because it doesn’t pose any health risks or discomfort to patients. They may not even known of any treatments, or be able to refer their patients on to other, specialist doctors or clinics.
But for affected men who want to restore their manhood to its former glory, there are a variety of treatment options, some expensive, some home remedies, others not entirely successful, as these white spots can reappear in the same place. One of the best current options for men with PPP is the option of CO2 laser removal, which is affordable, painless and has provided instant and lasting results.
