Here are some ...: Most likely, he is right about what he described as long as there being no change in size and number and being comfortable. Some men have many pearly penile papules (PPP) in 2-3 rows along the corona of penis, even around both sides of frenulum. So, don't worry about it and see.

Check: any rash or spots on the penis it's best to get checked by physician to see if it's an STD or not
