Skin Conditions

Pearly Penile Papules

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) are benign lesions on the corona of the penis. They are unusual but not abnormal. They do not require treatment. However, many men are self-conscious about PPP. Their partners often think that PPP are venereal warts, a form of STD.

At the Laser Center of Maryland, we perform carbon dioxide microscopic laser excision of Pearly Penile Papules. The operating microscope enables us to focus the CO2 laser beam to a fraction of a millimeter and specifically vaporize even the smallest papules without needlessly injuring the surrounding tissue. This results in rapid healing without scarring. A specially compounded lidocaine cream is applied 50 minutes prior to procedure. The lidocaine cream provides complete comfort without needles. The skin heals completely within 7- 10 days.

Will I be comfortable after treatment, and what steps do I have to take to care for the treated area?

Your discomfort is mild following treatment. A light application of Aquaphor several times per day keeps the treated area from drying out and it also reduces irritation. Our doctors recommend comfortable and soft underwear.

When can I resume sexual relations?

The doctors advise waiting for two weeks following treatment to allow enough time for the penis to completely heal.

Is this condition caused by sexual contact?

No, enlarged glands around the head of the penis cause the condition. Many men want these removed, and laser treatment is an effective and cosmetically pleasing solution.

Love yourself. Inside and out.
