Yeast infection?: Your symptoms suggest yeast infection, especially if uncircumcised and the "white spots" are under the foreskin. Vaginal itching or discharge also would fit with yeast. STDs are possible if your relationship is new and/or either of you has had other partners in the past few months. If so, both should see a doctor or clinic. If not, you could both try an OTC yeast cream, but see doc if no response.

Indeed PPP: Not to worry. These are often mistaken for genital warts. You have pearly penile papilla and not hpv warts. If you are sexually active please see your local doctor to discuss your risks of std's. Good luck and be safe.

Rough white spots on inside of cheek. Disappear and  come back later in same place. Painless but possibly linked to irritating foods/biting cheek.

Most likely: related to chronic inflammation from repeated biting. Have your dentist take a look at your teeth. An edge of one tooth might be irritating the area.

I have white spots in my inner cheek but the don't hurt much just a little but the spots are annoying are they just ulcers I smoke 5-10 cigs a day?

Stop smoking!: You do not need to create ulcers (canker sores) in your mouth. When you smoke, you are reducing local and global circulation to your body, skin, and mucous membranes (mouth). So, you don't want to compromise your health by chain smoking. Having local ulcers demonstrate that you need to take care of your health more, and reduce physical stress on it as a young man.

I have white spots on the inside on my left cheek. There is a sharp pain it's unbarable?

Painful spots: Painful white spots inside the cheek often are apthous ulcers or canker sores which may be caused by sensitivity to foods, toothpaste, certain drinks, but often the cause is unknown. These sore spots usually resolve within 7-10 days. Your physician or an Otolaryngologist can confirm the diagnosis for you. Try bathing the sore area with warm water, glyoxide. or maalox and take a multivitamin.

What to do if I have white spots on my cheek?

Depends on cause: if theis is due to repeated tanning and/or scarring, there may be few options for definitive treatment. Some practitioners have suggested skin needling as a possible treatment. Camouflage with makeup or intra dermal pigment (tattoo) may be helpful. If due to fungal infections, treatment with topical or oral agents may be of benefit. See a dermatologist for a diagnosis

What is your questio: You apparently are handling this well with a biopsy. It may be an infection from one of yur teeth. Have a dentist take x-rays of this area to determine if a tooth is the cause.
