PPP: Pearly penile papules are small dome-shaped to filiform skin-colored papules that are normal variants, and typically are located on the sulcus or corona of the glans penis. Commonly, pearly penile papules are arranged circumferentially in one or several rows and often are assumed wrongly to be transmitted sexually.

Possible: Such papules can be normal and caused by various processes such as clogged sweat glands, heat and moisture. Tingling sensations are fairly common. If any discharge occurs or if pain emerges. See your PCP for a possible referral to a urologist.

Not easy or needed.: Doesn't need treatment. It is not a skin disorder- just a normal variation. There is no method of removing these that you won't later regret.
