As with any ailment in sensitive areas, one of the main problems with Pearly Penile Papules lies in a lack of frank open discussion of what the condition is and what can be done about it. But to be forewarned is to be forearmed so here’s a quick guide to five things you probably don’t know about Pearly Penile Papules.
1. They are perfectly normal
Some studies have demonstrated that as many as 20% of men have Pearly Penile Papules, and whilst they are more common in young and uncircumcised men, in truth anyone can develop them at any time in their lives.
2. The Papules are left over from way back in our evolutionary past.
They are in fact the vestigial remains of penile spines; a feature common to many primates. For those animals that retain the full set of spines, their presence can enhance sexual pleasure. The human papule however, is merely an unsightly anatomical aberration.
3. The papules are often given to a case of mistaken identity.
HPV warts are a sexually transmitted infection more commonly known as genital warts. The Papules, to the untrained eye, could easily be mistaken for genital warts leading to a high level of distress and consternation in the patient. Papules, unlike HPV are not sexual transmitted, however; in fact they aren’t the result of an infection of any kind whatsoever, so you can’t pass them on to your partner.
4. Treatment is simple, effective and quick.
You might find lots of home readies online offering creams to soften the papules but the truth is if you want to get rid of them then all it will take is 60 minutes of your time. They can be removed, under anaesthetic by one of our trained physicians using a tool called a Hyfrecater or else by laser treatment.
5. They won’t grow back.
The procedure is almost completely discomfort free and you won’t need any period of convalescence after the procedure, you can just go about your daily business. You must abstain from sex or masturbation for a ten day period, just to let the skin heal fully, but they won’t grow back! Our treatment offers a permanent and not just cosmetic solution.
