Get Rid Of Papules
Laser: I'm going to assume you are describing pearly penile papules, a row of bumps that one man in 100 has on the back of his glans / head. It's a matter of personal preference as to whether to keep them or have them lasered off; they are harmless and might be considered cool / special.
Surgery: Although pearly penile papules (ppp) are a benign variant and do not require any treatment, some men request therapy to have them removed to help alleviate anxiety. Successful treatments include laser ablation using co2 laser (including fractional) electrodesiccation with curettage, and excisional surgery.
Normal variant: Pearly penile papules are a normal anatomical variant. They have no clinical significance and are found in up to 25% of men. They may actually be beneficial, as some men with ppp report enhanced sexual pleasure with stimulation of the papules.
Very Stubborn.: Good luck in finding any way, cheap, affordable or expensive, that effectively eliminating these papules. Fortunately, the papules are rarely symptomatic.See 2 more doctor answers

May be normal bumps!: Fordyce spots are considered a normal feature for many people. Therefore, one may have to consult with several urologists in order to find one who may be interested in trying to remove them. A skin laser treatment center may be needed, so a dermatologist consultation may be helpful. One should realize that removing a spot can leave a scar.
Unnecessary but...: If insisting their removal for no practical benefit but mental soothing, go to see urologist for proper counseling of the balance of medical necessity and proofessional possibilities for PPP since there are harmless. Best wish...
Penis: If you are talking about the small glands around the head of your penis, don't.
Proactiv: Your skin begins a lifelong process of shedding dead cells and producing oil. This process can be disrupted by your hormone balance, which changes throughout your life. The acne cycle is initiated when excess oil and dead skin cells combine to plug the pore of a hair follicle; behind the plugged pore, bacteria grow and multiply, triggering inflammation and swelling. Try otc proactiv.
Pearly penile papule: In all likelihood these are pearly penile papules and are not considered abnormal. There is no "treatment" for normal.

10 ds ago I was bitten by a mosquito, up till now there is a red blanch-able Papule, non itchy non tender, only red, how can I get rid of it!
Avoid any irritation: If it's not painful and doesn't itch, you probably don't have to take any action. However you do need to avoid scratching a plane with it. Avoid any kind of friction. Avoid putting any substance or chemicals on it. If it's just a simple mosquito bite, pimple should go away on its own. Give it another week if it's still not bothering you.
I have a small white papules around my eyes (i think it is milia) it is persist for along time, I need a way to get rid of it (medications or so on)?
Small white papules: Milia are tiny cysts that don't have an opening to the surface of the skin. The only way to get rid of them is to have your dermatologist open them with a needle or blade and scoop them out with a comedone extractor. The skin around the eyes is delicate and easily damaged, so please have your doctor take care of that.
I have atrophic scars on the glans penis, like acne boxcar scars, shallow/flat. Can I get them laser resurfaced like treatment for papules? Options?
Scars of the glans: Hello, from your question I did not get the sense that you had pain from the scars. I recommend against any further ablative treatments to the skin of the penis. This is a very sensitive part of your body and any ablative therapies such as laser resurfacing or more caustic treatments could reduce sensibility to this organ. Good luck.

Typically but cause?: This depends on the cause and if the papules are inflammatory or due to scarring.
PPP: These are a common naturally occuring normal variant of the glans. They can be laser ablated for cosmesis if desired.
