Pearly penile papule: Perly penile papules of the penis are multiple flesh color papules. They are benigh lesions and they are confused sometimes with warts, but they are not this entity. It can cause anxiety because people sometimes may think they are genital warts and sometimes can make the penis have a crown full of these papules making the penis look very unusual. Best treatment is desication follow by c02 laser.

I strongly advise against CO2 or laser ablation, such treatment can be quite risky!
