If you suffer from Pearly Penile Papules (PPP), they may not be painful, contagious or cause any harm, but they can still affect you psychologically. Many sufferers are tempted to pick these white dome-shaped pimples around the head of their penis in the hope that this will help to get rid of them; this is a mistake.
Chance of scarring
Picking at your PPP will not effectively treat this harmless skin condition, and could even lead to scarring around the penis that cannot be treated as easily as PPP can, so it is important to leave them alone. It may be a discomfort to have these small white spots around your penis, but lifetime scars will certainly not be an improvement on the situation.
Typically, the area where PPP is located is generally very sensitive, so not only will picking your PPP hurt, it could also lead to inflammation. Inflamed papules could burst and make the area infected, and although this will heal in time, you will be left with the scars to remember it by.
Picking won’t help
Picking your PPP is not by any means an effective way to remove them, and will not ultimately solve the problem; even if you were to pick some of the papules off yourself, many will still remain. There are other methods that will be able to effectively remove your PPP, such as a hyfrecator, which only takes around an hour.
A quick internet search will bring up various other home treatment methods, including tea tree oil, castor oil, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid, but unfortunately none of these are really proven to work and you could be waiting a long time before you see any kind of real results. It’s also true that PPP can vanish with age, but you could be waiting years for the white spots to disappear on their own.
