Pearly Penile Papules Treatments (PPP treatments)

Home treatments for PPP that work

How are Pearly Penile Papules Treated?

PPP treatment (Pearly penile papules) uses a simple medical procedure by either Electrosurgery or a CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser.

Electrosurgery offers just as high quality as a laser but with a much lower price. Both CO2 laser and Electrosurgery concentrate exclusively on the individual papule being eradicated. This ensures no damage to the Glans or the penis. The treatment starts with using a topical anaesthetic cream that numbs the required area. This will remove any need for injections whilst still making sure that the whole treatment is painless.

PPP areas treated will form a small scabrous tissue for a day or so as the skin fully heals beneath. Any scabrous tissue will rub away naturally.

The resulting effects on the treatment area are instantly noticeable and almost always permanent, meaning that there will only be a single treatment required with the doctor.

PPP creams and other home treatment choices

Which PPP home treatment is available in the UK and do Pearly Penile Papules treatments actually work?

There is an extensive array of different Pearly papule treatments being sold in the UK; however less than a handful of these are any good.

In fact, the more popular methods of Pearly penile papules home treatments are not treatments at all!

Are there pills for Pearly papules treatment?

Dr Josh can categorically state that he has never seen any pill that will remove PPP at all, period!

We were surprised to hear of patients being offered penile papule treatments as a series of pills. There is no pharmaceutical offering available for the treatment of papules on the penis. Any advert or article you see that offer pills to remove PPP is a scam.

Which home treatment is the best Pearly papule treatments?

In the UK doctors have to abide by the General Medical Council rules and regulations for medical treatments.

Unfortunately this doesn’t leave us fully protected when it comes to PPP treatments that only suggest a scientific basis.

Cleverly worded promises and careful descriptions, internet articles, and old wives tales say they’ll treat Pearly penile papules.

From PPP creams and potions, to Pearly penile papule pastes and ointments and finally to Pills and good intentions, there are numerous ways that people will try to sell you the cure-all remedy to PPP removal.

So which are the right ways to treat PPP and which are the treatments to avoid with a medical bargepole?

Will PPP treatment Damage anything?

That will all depend on the treatment type you ultimately choose.

We have mentioned above the pseudo Pearly penile papules home treatments. None of these options will help you in anyway. They are not medical treatments and should not be classed as such.

There is no guarantee that any of these will be safe. That they will not incur damage to the penis or reduce sensitivity of the skin around the glands.

Any use of these baseless recommendations may result in a future dermatological condition. Skin irritation or inflamed skin around existing papules and down onto the shaft of the penis may occur.

We do not recommend that you entertain any of the above Pearly penile papule home treatment offerings in the slightest.

What exactly is Electrosurgery?

Electrosurgery is a term used to describe a set of machines that use electricity on the skin tissue to cause vaporisation, coagulation or dehydration.

Specifically, our electrosurgery uses vaporisation to completely remove the papules from the skin tissue.

By sending a low pulsed signal of electrical alternating current through a medical electrode we’re able use the papule tissue to cause a resistance to the electrical current. The heat this produces, although not painful, is enough to remove the papule by the process of ablation.

After ablation an immediate scabbing forms that help to destroy any remaining papule tissue. For each few papules we treat we finalise with a curlette to remove dead skin to reveal the papule free area.

What science is there to show electrosurgery to work?

Electrosurgery has been in medical use since 1926.

There are many many scientific and medical papers about the use of electrosurgery since first used in 1926. It is widely used in operating theatres and by specialist doctors up and down the country. Electrosurgery for PPP is a very safe treatment.

By its very nature the electrosurgery is a perfect medical treatment for treating pearly penile papules.

We have not had any reports or seen any observations of any side effects at all.

So what is the best treatment for PPP?

None of the home treatments you see advertised will be recommended by any Doctor that values medical treatment over false hopes and promises.

The facts are obviouse and easy to understand. Electrosurgery is almost certainly the best treatment for PPP and although it’s not the only treatment available (a CO2 laser will treat PPP), Dr. Josh has remarked many times that he prefers the results of Electrosurgery as he feels there is a faster healing time. This for him is one of the major factors towards offering this PPP treatment type.
