Question:

Theres this pealy white bumb that resembles a pimple thats growing near the hair follicles. Yet I dont think it is those early papules. I have never had sex, so i wonder what is it?




 



Don''t try to pop it! It is most likely an ectopic sebaceous gland. This is not contagous, nor does it require treatment. It is naturally occuring in about 1/3 of all men. Most of the time the bumps will appear on the ventral (bottom) side of the penis. I have done much research in order to figure out what these are ever since i noticed them about 3 years ago. They haven't gone away, but i don't worry about them anymore because I was checked by a doctor and they assured me they are not warts.

im so glad I found this site in time. im a 16 year old male, and ive had these for a while now. ive always worried about them, thinking that i have penile warts. but now i can rest assure that i will be fine. your right about them not looking very attractive. is there a way of getting rid of them, or should i just leave them be?

Yo, I''m 24 and in med school, and I just finally figured out the name of this thing (pearly penile papules). I def remember pickin at em for a while when I was a teenager, but guys, don't worry. Before I figured out what they were, one long term gf never said a word about em, and my most recent gf said she loves giving head and feeling them on her lips. Go figure. If anything, I'd call just call them love bumps, and leave it at that. Trust me on one thing, girls won't care that much. They are so much more insecure than guys about anything physical, they'll still be more worried about pleasing you, so keep your heads up (pun intended).

i have popped mine a couple of times and this white stuff comes out. is it possible to have them on the part between the head and the shaft

Just don''t try to hide it. I noticed them when I was 14 (21 now) and I was having the same reactions that you are going through. I checked it out with a doctor when I was about 17 and he said it was nothing to worry about. None of my girlfriends had any problems with it when I was in high school... just explain so she doesn't get the wrong idea and think you have an STD or are trying to hide something from her. I am now married and my wife has absolutely no problems with it... all is well.

It's unfortunate that more isn't said about this condition. I had to find out about it first on the internet like all of you. I just wonder how many young guys are constantly worried about it. Don't let something like this ruin your confidence. Good luck.

the thing is.. i''m quite sure this is what I have.. i'm a 15 yr old male.. i don't kno how to rid of them but DON'T SQUEEZE THEM.. if you squeeze them the get infected and they get puss in them making them bigger.. i plan to go to a doctor about this sometime this week

I get the same thing - big stubborn pimple type of things, but I get them on the band of skin over my pubic hair. Having confirmed they''re not HPV related (thanks for the good news, all), and not around the glands like ppp's, I can only assume they're folliculitis (ingrown hairs, which are essentially big zits themselves). Tho, they last longer than I'm used to ingrown hairs lasting, sometimes minor discoloration lasting months.

the best way to clear these up, I've learned, is good exfoliation. Soak in a bath for a while to soften the skin, then rub it with a washcloth to remove the most exterior layer of dead skin. There are also exfoliant creams that can work.

it is called pearly penile papules, I just found out i have it. its a common condition.


9/22/2003

This website is a relief...thanks to everyone. I''m 18 and I've had this annoying little bastards for about 4 years (I've been to three doctors). On this website I've heard Vicks Vapo Rub and toothpaste...I'm so sick of these that I'm trying both!!

Question though: 1) Would those actually work? and 2)Does laser surgery or something of that nature work, and if it does, what about scarring?

I will get these things off my penis, I'm not letting them hang out there forever.


12/23/2004

I have the same thing i''m a 15 year old male and i'm not sexually active either...it's better to know it's much more common then I thought...i wanna go see a doctor about them to be sure...to be honest my main concern is how to get rid of the F%$#ing things!!!

Just watch who you come in contact with.....if I knew hpv existed i would have been more cautious!!!! please tell others!! I want to stop the ignorance!! by the way this is a great site.

these showed up on me too. I went to planned parenthood and they said it''s not warts. but i'm still in disbelief. they dont look attractive to me, and regardless of it being good or not does anyone know how to get rid of them?


4/9/2004

Warts are pretty obvious. They usually appear in small bunches and look cauliflower like.

I would reccomend lightly scrubbing it with a bath rag and some soap. That will usually get rid of the pimple.

Yea, I had these bastards since 15, but it dident plauge me as a std because my mom (thank god for her medical expertise) diagnosed it around 16, but it is a relief to know its a common occurance among men.


2/17/2005

sounds like an ingrown hair. if you shave or a hair just gets pulled out of its follicle by rubbign against your clothes, then sometimes, when it starts to grow back, it can''t finds its way back and you get something taht looks like a pimple from the irritation.

Can anyone tell me the name of the bacteria living inside the ppp?


1/7/2006

At first I wondered wat these things were now i know i looked it up i thank the web i found some information on treatment i''m glad its not HPV i think this will help those who r lost i hope i can help you they are called Pearly Penial Papules, typically are asymptomatic and require no therapy ,may request therapy to alleviate anxiety.Ablation using carbon dioxide laser, electrodesiccation with curettage, and excisional surgery reportedly have successfully eliminated papules.Mixed results have been noted with cryotherapy.Topical application of podophyllin largely has been ineffective Consultation may prove useful when the diagnosis is not obvious.Pearly penile papules are not associated with personal hygiene or sexual activity. Still i doubt many of our girlfriends will be to happy but at least it isnt an STD


7/7/2004


!


Whew thanks alot, Im 14 and I guess Im gonna try that toothpaste thing and maybe vics vapo rub... and I''ll email that guy who said any Q's... Well I hope i can get rid of thse because im too embarassed to talk to my mom or my doctor.. o well I just hope this doesnt scare away any girls if i get lucky some time int he future

My god, thank christ for this site. Im not religious but tbh I was getting really worried about these gits, thankfully they are not an STD.
Just annoys me that if its so common, and 1/3 have it, y there isnt more info on it.

I noticed them about 16yr and im 19 now, but ive been sh*tting bricks until now. Thanks to everyone whos posted on here, uve put my mind at rest. By the way, we should campaign to get this more talked about, as im sure theres millions of guys out there, scared to Genital Warts about it.

Take care guys and breath the good air, haha.


9/6/2005

Wow I have had these lil Genital Warts disturbers for like 4 years ever since i was 13 and have been in denial that it was anything serious.. i would lie to my self telling me it was probably part of puberty and that it would clear itself up. I would pray to god to make them leave even tho im not religious at all. anyways now that im like 99.9% sure that i have penile papules im glad it wasnt anything harmfull but hope to god they come up with a treatment for this god awfull berdin. thank god for this web site i havent laughed about this kinda of subject for so long.. like the others are saying "keep ur chins up boys"

Yooo I am 16yrs old i had these''s white little pimpol looking things around my penis head i was soo freakin scared i had somethign wrong with me but now i fell str 8 it's hurts when i try to pop them so im going to leave them alone hopeful they go away before i have sex i hope my g/f doesn't say anything about them


8/9/2004

about 2 years ago I found these white bumps on my penis. they were/are at the bottom of my head where it turns into the shaft. it covers the surcomfrence of that area. i thought it was a yeast infection but then i asked my docter. she said that they were nothing and they are pretty common. there is no cure they she knew of dispite what i have heard about tooth paste. i am unsurcomsised and i think that may intensify the bumps because they seem to thrive on moisture. washing the area a lot but GENTLY is important. if anyone has any questions or concerns or over all comments they can email me at gphil321@yahoo.com. good luck and dont let these things keep you from a good time if you know what i mean.


6/26/2005

i have it too, I wondered wat it was for a while and my doctor said not to worry about it it wasnt an std or anything, but it wouldnt go away but whew!

Hey, think I might have an answer with regards to GETTING RID OF PPP''s.
I've had them for as long as I can remember knowing what a great toy my "little man" was!

After watching "40 Days and 40 nights" I thought it couldnt be that hard to do and tried astonance!

The Papules after sometime got smaller and would disappear starting from the sides and top first...!

I think it is a sign of an irratation (as most pimples commonly are). Take a spot for example...if you pick/pop it, it will get bigger and look worse. This is the same thing only these come from masturbating. If you leave it, it will go....

Here's to self discipline lads....HANDS OF C**K'S ON SOCKS!!!!


12/14/2004


!


It''s without a doubt PPP. I am 17 and had them for two years now. The fact is, they're not going away, so don't worry about them. one thing that I have found that makes them show up more is regular mastibation.
Toothpaste does make them less noticable, but also stings and irritates the skin. The way i see it is that 1/3 of men have them so it's about as common as frecles.

I really don't care anymore. I mean, i only have them up the shaft of my penis and not on my penis head, and only on one side which is weird lol.


3/1/2005


!


Man, thank you all for your info on this. I''ve had them for the longest time and was worried that I had something worse. I've been afraid to go to the doc and get it checked out. Now I'm not afraid of my doctor appointment next week!!!. On a side note, I have a lot of ingrown hairs on the rest of my body, so this must be like a genetic thing.

Does that vicks vaporrub really work?? I guess I'll try it and let y'all know. Thanks a million, tons of weight lifted off my shoulders today!!!!

I''ve had them since I was 14 and I didn't have sex for the first time until I was 19.

These bumps are not genital warts (HPV) or an STD. I have had the unfortunate circumstance of catching genital warts (HPV) from someone, and they went away after treatment with Aldara creme. Genital warts are a very different kind of bump altogether. The PPP's have always been there, but the warts went away after a few months of treatment with Aldara creme. The creme is expensive and will not make PPPs go away as there is no cure, its just the way your skin is - so accept it.

Not masturbating will not help. I often don't masturbate for a week or two, and the bumps are still there. Some days they seem larger and other times they seem smaller, but they remain.

Don't worry about it. If you have a new partner that asks about it, then show them this website - case closed.

Thanks to everyone on this site, I am 19 now i first saw them when i was 16, freaked me out, and really messed my confidence, but thanks to the internet which seems to fix most of life''s little niggles i am much more confident. I dont believe there is a cure but am gonna try out the vapo rub and possibly the toothpaste other than that may your minds rest in peace my brothers.

Just been to the doctor about pimples like these. Kind-of pearly, hard-ish lumps that look like pimples but don''t contain pus like a zit does.
Anyhow, she said it looks like folliculitis and gave me some creams. Folliculitis is caused by the bacterium Staphylococcus Aureus (hopefully not the Methycillin-resistant type MRSA about which we hear so much in the news!), and so it can be treated with antibiotic creams. I've got a soft paraffin-based cream for my pubic region and (don't laugh!) another cream for inside my nose! The theory is that the Staph bug, which is present in all of us, lives mainly up your nose, so to clear up the spots around my pubic region, I need to reduce the total amount of Staph in my body, and where better to treat it than up the nose! Maybe picking my nose and then scratching "down there" has brought the condition on in the first place?
Anyhow, I feel a lot better about it having been to the doc.

hello to all fo you. it''s times like these where you learn to appreciate everything you have. it's amazing how in the blink of an a eye your whole view and attitude towards things can change. I have had these pimple like bumps on the sides of my penis and around the head in a neat row and i have been to 3 doctors since i noticed them. the first two diagnosed me with genital warts but i couldnt figure out how i could possibly get them. i was upset because genital warts is considered an STD but as i did research all over the internet i learned there are other ways of contacting this virus so naturally this angered me because this virus, so called STD, is really one of the most common virus' out there and shoud not be called an STD. i lost my virginity to my current girlfriend and she lost hers to me too. however, i have slept with another girl who had slept with one guy before me. however, they were both virgins so that means i couldnt have gotten anything from her. so that just confused me even more. i kept researching and found that what i have can possibly be pearly penile paules and really both the doctors i had visited mis diagnosed me. of course it is a long shot for two qualified medical scholars to mis diagnose me but i just wasnt satisfied that they would give up on me so quickly. so i sought out the opinion of a third doctor and this one surprisingly said that what i have is not genital warts at all but simply papules that i had nothing to worry about. they will go away with age she says and assured me they ar not genital warts. she felt them and said if they were genital warts they would feel rough and be colliflower like. i hope they go away soon but judging from what i have read it doesnt look like they will be going away anytime soon, but i have to beleive that i will get a second chance because i deserve one. its rough to be yougn and careful full of morals only to wake up one mornign and look down to something that will now plague you and your mind for months to years. its mentally draining because you are constantly thinking about this and praying you are ok. i have another doctors appointment on monday to further confirm my having papules and not genital warts. im scared of what this doctor might say so i will let all of you know how i goes. i will ask about a treatment for cosmetic purposes and i will get back to all of you as soon as possible. i pray that all of you are ok. i know most of us, and frankly, all of us, don't deserve something like this... however, at the same time it could always be worse. at least we are not in danger of Genital Warts or becoming unhealthy. either way, may God bless all of you and remember. "everything is going to be alright, everything is going to be alright, everything is going to be alright, be strong, believe."

Ahhh! All I can do is laugh now, I have had these damn things since I was 14 (16now). I was so scared at frist, and I thought they would go away. I figured nothing was wrong becuz they never hurt or pussed or ne thing. thank God im not circumsized becuz the girls can''t see them at all. Im so freakin releaved, I just gotta rembmer this site so I can prove to my g/f if she ever see's them that they are not contag. They sure are damn ugly though, does the laser sugery thing remove them for good, or only for a short period of time?

Don''t worry boys. I'm 33 and I've had these since puberty. They freaked me out for years and like most of you, I was worried I had genital warts. Finally, I had some serious genital pain that, as it turns out, was unrelated (and not terribly serious), but it forced me to visit a urologist and he was able to finally tell me what these things were and that they were normal and didn't require treatment. The only treatment to make them go away is surgery (laser, scapel, freezing), but you can live happily with them.

I wish that when I was a teenager I'd had a resource like this to ally my fears of STD's and even cancer. Since a third of men are said to have these, this really should be better publicized to young men and adolescents so they understand what they are seeing. Look at how many of you (me included) were embarressed by this condition and unwilling to visit a doctor about it? For papules, this made no difference, but with an actual STD, you could be talking life and Genital Warts issues. Need to lose that fear.


9/24/2005

Don''t worry about it. I went to the doctor about a spermocidal cyst or something I had on my testical (thought it might be cancer, so I got it checked out!) and I got an ultrasound to be sure it was a cyst. I was worried the doctor would see my testicals or penis and go "OH MY GOD!" but she didn't even comment on it. Not even a second glance.
I also have this, I would call them "pits" but thats not what they are. they are hair follicals that are pulled back or something so they create a little deviation in the skin. I started freaking out until I realized that there was a small hair growing out of them.

Bottom line is don't obsess about your penis. You can pick and squeeze but that just leads to infections and pain.


6/18/2006

If the bumps are on the head of the penis they are pearly penile papules, if they are on the shaft of the penis they are Sebaceous Glands, they are the glands at the root of hair follicles that secrete an oil to keep hair healthy and hydrated, it is still unkknown why ppl get them on the penis but they are harmless, both ppp and sebaceous glands so dont worry guys, I have had them since puberty and was too embarassed to go to my GP now i am a med student and have found out what they are my mind is finally at rest


2/22/2006

Sorry, this might be a stupid question that''s already been answered.

I'm 15, I've never had sex, but I'm thinking about it, and I wanted to make sure that what this is isn't going to interfere. There are very very small whitish bumps, but they are around the base of my penis instead of the head. It almost look like a rash, but it's not irritating or itchy at all. It's too small to even feel or see unless you look close. Is this these penile papules?

I know exactly what you''re talking about, I also suffer from these hair follicles, not near the pelvis, but all around my legs and arms!!! And yes it is genetic condition called Keratosis pilaris (http://www.atlasdermatologico.com.br/listar.asp?acao=mostrar&arquivo=keratosis_pilaris2.JPG)
It is very disgusting so i went to the doctor and he prescribed me glicolic acid, but it has'nt worked well for me. Anyways as a genetic condition it has no cure so live with it. And I also have ppp and keloid (suposedly a black people condition, but i'm white). Yeah my parents just inherited me the worst part...

i have reached a conclusion about the whole tooth paste and vapo rub thing.

i am pretty sure that they just need to be dried up, I just tried the toothpaste today and they seem to be going away, but cause the toothpaste seems to air them out, and i am assuming the vapo rub would do the same. and i think i read someone sayin about standing infront of a fan for a while. anyway i would say just try some normal tooth paste (i used colgate). oh and you got to stop the masturbating. i am pretty sure mine are long gone.

Hi Guys,

Im 32 and have had these ever since I can remember.

One day at school(an all boys school) one of the kids asked a teacher in front of everyone. The male teacher did nothing and shrugged it off.

I had the same question... just wasnt gonna say it in front of the whole class.

I never spoke to the other kid about it.

For many years it has worried me.... especially when a girl has pulled my knob out for oral.

I have had quite a few sexual partners - probably around 15 - and only one has ever mentioned it ..... and that was the woman I married and she compared them to the lumps around her nipples (which most women have). She was more worried about her nipples.

Im glad this resource is here ... more importantly Im happy so many others are here to help each other!

im so happy this things arent some weird STD. Ive had them since im 13 and I felt like it was some curse from God or something, since im still a virgin was allways wodering what the f**k they were. Anyways, when i was 15 i tried stopping masturbation, i did it for about a month and, in my experience, it didnt make them go away, not even get smaller. im not saying you shouldnt try it (maybe it would work, who knows) some dude said it did work for him. Im really gonna try using the toothpaste to check if it actually works (really hope it will!) kuz, lets face it, its nice to know that they are not contagious and stuff, but personally i dont think they are really atractive.

WOW! Thats a relief, I thought i had some kind of horrible disease and was gonna die. I''ve had them for about 3 years and have always been insecure about them, now I look back and hate myself for turning down sex on several occasions for the fear i had warts or some Genital Warts. So apparently less masterbation helps make them go away? I think that i'll be able to refrain from shooting off some knuckle children for a while. And im definately gonna give the vapo rub and tooth paste a try. One more thing, is this more common for guys who are uncircumsized? Because i know I am, and judging from the comments lots of you are too. THANKS A LOT AND F*CK SCHOOL FOR NOT INFORMING THIS TO US!! >LIKE WTF!! I WAS SKETCHING OUT FOR NOTHIN! l8r

SOO doctor''s claim that ONLY surgery can cure it... from what was found here, toothpaste and Vick's VapoRub seems to work too... so what's up with that?

PPP y is everyone so fussed over it if the answer is so simple 4 fuks sake.. so many people mentioned it already..TOOTHPASTE go get sum ice whitening mcleans and rub it on ur Genital Warts b4 sleep den shower it off in d morning


7/4/2006

Wow, I think this site helped. I''m still not sure though. I looked for some pictures and the things I saw are not what I have, just some small colourless bumps around the shaft.

That white Genital Warts on the head is seriously messed up though. I feel sorry for you guys. I wouldn't touch that if I was a frickin doctor.

Always worried when sleeping with a new girl if she''ll say something, I'm 21 now and I grew up not knowing what they were and too embarresed to ask the doc. Well I've never had a girl say anything and they always come back for more so I don't think theres anything to worry about. I always kinda assumed it was something to do with hair follicles, like ingrown hairs or something.


11/9/2004

I love this site. I was so worried about confronting my docotor about this. I was so worried it was hpv like most of you. I doughted it because I have never been sexually active. Don''t pop them. I got one bigger and don't want it to grow ne more. And when one gets infected from poping it it's scary. Thx every. This was such a reilife =)


5/12/2005

Yeah I have them too. i was freakin out when I thought i had HPV but I really wanna get rid of them they are annoying and dont look good.


4/16/2004

Thank God, I was at the point of aviod sex and sports cause i though i had a STD or something. Thank God!!! Somehow we need to get this to kids and stuff in schools cause i avoid so many things in life because of ppp. 1/3 of men have it and this bastard needs to be taught at schools... i am so glad i dont have a STD THANK GOD


10/1/2005

Thank goodness, I had em even befor i got married and had sex, for somereason I just decided that it was a curse from god, but now i know its not! Glad i found this site...

I just recently noticed small bumps all over my scrotum and shaft... now I''ve heard you ppl talking about this- but its seems like I have way more than normal... so I dono. I do want to thank everyone though cause Ive been freakin out for the past I dono how long... I guess I should try the whole toothpast and vapo rub thing- but its just really hard to believe.


2/15/2006


!


Wow thanks, Ive had these ever since I can remember and ive never had intercourse and im a 15 year old male that has never once again HAD SEX. I have these pimple like things on my penis and when you do pop them very little stuff comes out of them their on the shaft of my penis not noticable until erected or when i pull the skin back. Then it will be more noticable thanks so much nothing to worry about any more ive had these for about 4-5 years now.


1/5/2007


!


THERE IS NOTHING 2 WORRY ABOUT!

Ive had these 4 a while (im 17 and Ive had it since im 14) but nope sometimes it itches but its very rare try 2 shower more often though and keep it clean you know what I mean, also they will bug even more if u try to put toothpaste or any mint cream they will go away same way as the Pimples! use BENZOYL PEROXIDE Wash 5% just apply a little bit every time you can but wash IT before putting it again and when you pee! well is better twice a day because your penis could over dry.

My girlfriend says it tickles her and feels even better that I should have them instead of getting rid of them but I had them kinda big well not BIG but i liked them smaller. Ask your partner whether you should keep them of get rid of them. Or its up to you right? well enjoy em or kill em! thats all i got to say! HAPPY TIME BONER! =)


12/18/2007

omg life saver or what
i had like 3 smallish white hard pimples on my scrotum (ball sak) I noticed when i was like 15 now i coming on 17, and tbh, im guna try toothpaste tonight, but its common everysay says 1/3 men get them on scrotum or penis, and ill report back tommorow if toothpaste works, if not then ill report back saying how stupid i was for trying it

anyone who posted on this site life saver lol

when your un-circumsized how do you apply toothpaste on your penis in order it to dry and what do you use to hold the foreskin up?

-- !MUST READ!-----

ok I have the same thing everyones talking about about the lil white dots around the penis head
what im doing is getting rid of it actually almost instantly
all you have to do is keep your penis clean and "DRY" serioulsy it works for me keep it dry dont let it get moist under the extra skin i thinks thats the reason why men with uncircumcised penis'' have it more than men circumcised penis's because mositure gets locked under the extra skin.


12/7/2006


!


wow... im VERY much releaved.... I thought it was an STD but its just a skin problem... my girl doesnt mind and i went 2 a dermatologist and they said freezing them can have them go away but its gonna kinda irritate for a while... i might do just to have them visibily gone


6/26/2006

i''m 17.. I had this since 4-5years ago.. the 1st thing i tt was.. 'I'm Dead, I'm infected'... i would have killed myself if i did not find this webby... the school shld have talks on this little ArgH... Alot of students(like me) don't know anything about this... ArgH thingy... Heard that 1/3 of man would have it... BUT Y DON'T GODS GIFT THIS TO EVERY MAN! Argh... they look totally unplesant on my penis.. mine is on the shaft... any1 noes any 'safe bet' on removing this little...ArgH..

Phew! I''m so glad this site is here, i've worried about these things i've had since I was about 13. I'm now 18, and i have been trying to pluck up the courage to go see the docs. But from a few pictures i think i have ppp. I am so glad i found this resource. Thanks Guys!


1/31/2006


!


Thanks to everyone who has came across this site and added to it. Im 25 and have had ppp since I can remember. I was always worried that id caught something after some booze fueled unprotected sex with a stranger, and ive always been too scared and embarressed to go to my doc (especially cause it''s a woman). LIke many on this site i feel like such a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Im now confident to go see the doc just to get it confirmed. There was nothing like this taught when i was at school and if there still aint its a Genital Wartsy disgrace! I mean come on, 1 in 3 males have it. Just think how many guys there are out there like us panicking cause they havent found sites like this one.
Anyways, thanks again to you all, its good to know im not alone. Stay safe so you dont have to worry again.


1/29/2006

haha the funny thing was I jacked off just before reading all this. i looked at them and it reminded me to look for treatment. i get worried that wen the time comes to hav sex, the girl will laff n tell evry1. i think that this thing should really be spoken more about because i bet a lot of peepol were scared about it at first. i really cant believe how common its supposed to be. anyways, im gnna restrain from masterbatin, and put sum vikks vapour rub on the lil bast**ds. but thank you all so much for this site, i feel more secure about it.


7/26/2006

OK WELL GUYS I AM A FEMALE BUT HERE IS SOME ADVICE.. MY BOYFRIEND FOR 4 YEARS NOW HAS THAT PPP.. AT FIRST I NEVER NOTICED UNTILL I STARTED GOING DOWN OFTEN.. THEN I FREAKED OUT. I THOUGH HE WAS CHEATING ON ME WITH SOME DIRTY SLUT. I AM A MEDICAL STUDENT SO I LOOKED INTO IT AND FOUND OUT WHAT IT REALLY WAS. I KNOW IT CAN AFFECT YOUR SELF ESTEEM WITH WOMEN BUT JUST KNOW AS LONG AS YOU EDUCATE THE WOMAN BEFORE HAND EVERYTHING SHOULD BE FINE. I ALSO HEARD THAT TOOTH PASTE HELPS BUT ALSO TRY USING THAT BODY SPRAY AXE FOR MEN,THAT WORKED TOO..

HAHA. It seems everyone is saying the same things. I went to a doctor about this because i thought they where warts and he just said it was my Hormones. I thought it might have been caused by masturbation, but it seems that 1 in 3 have it, so at least im not the only one.

I cant belive it has been so difficult to find out what they where. Thankyou for this site.

I think ill try the vapor rub.


3/15/2005

I love this site!!!I have been worrying about these things for about 2 years, now that I read up on it i know that im fine now. Everyone says that they thought it was warts, i thought it was herpes and i wasnt sure if i would be able to get into a relation ship with GH. Now that i realized it isnt an STD im pimpin'' the girls.
Thank you everyone who wrote anything on this site.

Amazing site, saved my life. I thought i had genital warts and i was way too embarrassed to go to the doc, but now i dont have to worry because i have these things which arent the greatest thing but there way better than warts.


11/11/2004

Wow, I thought I had genital warts even though I''ve never had any sexual contact in my life. I finally discovered what these small, white pin-pricks are. This site, has saved my life and my sanity.


4/7/2005

well to be honest love I think you are a dirty Genital Warts. try avin a bath or shower at least once a day, it will help alot amd you will also smell alot fresher. also, when you have a dump its important to wipe front to back to avoid spreading germs. you are a smelly twat.


7/13/2005


!


Ya I have them too, thought i was diseased, blah blah, but i have one huge questeion, why the #$^& arent they telling us about this in schools?! i mean i was absolutle freaking out, contemplating seriosusly hurting myself over these things which i thought were herpes or something crazy like that, i mean if 1 in 3 have it, why isn''t it more well known?


3/21/2005


!


Iv had these for a while now and at first my natural reaction was to freak myself out and convince myself I had every STD under the sun, but i didnt hesitate to go see my doctor, and he put my mind at ease. But you all seem to talk about it like its a illness, when its just the way your skin is! like some-one said in an earlier post its like freaking out because you have freckles or a mole. It still gets me down a bit sometimes but i check out this web site and i look at the pictures of the poor b******s with HPV and it really puts things into perspective so ill leave you with the thought "ITS JUST YOUR SKIN"

P.S my girlfriend dosnt care and if you did meet a girl who was bothered, there not even worth your time, how shallow must they be to care about a few spots on your "old fella"
hope you all stop worrying about it
good luck in your search for peace of mind (lol i sound like yoda or something)

hey I have had these things on the end of the head of my penis and on the shaft and im not circumcised so i have them like on the top of the foreskin, im pretty damn sure its them now n i feel slightly better, i looked up other STD''s and after seeing photos, makes my thing look like nothing, if 1 / 3 men have it wtf is the deal with no info on it!!! i wanted to die i thought they were seriously bad, thanks to every1 on this site but id like to make sure thats wot these things are, can some1 please me an email on jim_4_root@hotmail.com

thanks so much dudes, peace out...

hey all, as everyone else said thanks for the relief. I knew about these little bastards before but i didnt find this site the last time i looked (about 4 years ago).
im 23 now and had them ever since around puberty. i was just looking for a way to get rid of these little things now, but it doesnt look good :S. ill try teh vics and tooth paste thing but i cant see that helping that much. i havent been to a doctor either cause im too embarassed and from all teh pictures ive seen i definatly have PPP.

any for every1 out there thats worried? dont worry, that will get you nowheres, trust me i know..


9/3/2005

Wow Hurray. This site is great like everyone else stated. Im 21 yr old guy I think ive had these since i remeber starting masturbating around 13. I believe all forms of this are not called ppp i have the pimply looking thing on the bottom of my shaft only but they go up from base almost to head, i also have a bit larger then average size member so it makes them that much more prominent. But anyways i was lloking on a site they called the ones that run along the shaft Sebaceous prominence. Well my wife noticed these last night because i had masturbated about 3 times before she got home and we had sex and i believe it must of made them more inflamed because they were a little more larger then usual, but it was so aqkward cause she looked at my Genital Warts and said i had warts at first i told her they were ingrown hairs. Thing is ive never known what it is i thought pimples on the Genital Warts how? but i also used to have very severe acne as a teen i wonder if its a certain skin type that makes this happen. But i believe this needs to be posted and sent out to school because this Genital Warts kept me along with being uncircumcized from having sexual intercourse till i was 18. But good luck to all with this hey 1/3 of us got it, and my wife seems no more changed. If someone is wanting and willing to have sex with you these will not change the fact be open with your partner and you''''ll get through it fine.

hi all, im 15 years old soon to be 16 ive had these annoyin pimples since I was 13 im realli unlucky to get em so young my doc said, but i dont let it bover me i have a girlfriend i told her bout em she dont mind, its all good, just gotta explain if any of ya are embaressed :D but they are a bit annoyin but my doc said 25-44% of ,males get em. and only laser surgery can cure em and thats not 100% certain so just live with em , i thought they would just go away but they neva, but im fine with em, hope you all do well atleast u aint got an STD that can harm u see look on da bright side


9/16/2004

Definately PPP. I have these little bastards and they make sex a big anxiety battle. I have two suggestions...the first is accept it and hope you meet a girl that doesn''t care (lets be honest that is never gonna happen is it) The second is to get them removed surgically. I hate this answer I have given you as much as i can imagine you do but thats all I can suggest. Im saving for an operation now to laser these little anoying off. Good luck with your decision and keep your chin up )


8/31/2004

Im almost certain there is no way to get rid of them. Getting rid of them is like getting rid of taste buds or pore on your skin. I guess just deal with it. I mean, a lot of guys have them, so women that have been with a few guys know what they are from previous experience. Don''t freak out about it. Save the freaking out till you are 26 and your urine is green.

I know what to call them now!! My chick calls them nobbles and we think there cool.Espeacially now I no there not warts. My chick cut one off with nail cutters, it was a rogue from the other cluster, it hurt like hell and you need suducrem to stop any infections. Anyway so relevied to now it 8nt serious life is good again. Thanks for the website its a godsend

Hey I got the bastard spots on my penis too and im going to try the toothpaste, what im wondering though is this. How long do you let the toothpaste stay before you wash it off ?

I think the following should help people who want to know if they have HVP or GENITAL WARTS or not.

The ANSWER: THE ONLY SURE WAY TO TELL IS TO GET TESTED! (Do NOT be afraid of going to the doctor.)

Many people have posted questions about little white bumps, wanting to know if they are infected with HPV.

In many cases this is NOT HPV or HERPES or GENITAL WARTS.

There are two naturally ocurring skin conditions that affect between 50%-90% of the population.

1) FIND OUT WHAT YOU HAVE

CLICK ON THIS WEBSITE TO SEE WHICH OF THE TWO NON VIRAL, NATURAL SKIN CONDITIONS YOU HAVE:
http://www.studenthealth.co.uk/advice/advice.asp?adviceID=153

It is most likely one of the two conditions: PPP (PENILE PENILE PAPULES) or FS (FORDYCE''''S SPOTS).

They are both NATURAL, COMMON, NON-TRANSMITTABLE, AND ARE NOT GENITAL WARTS, NOT HPV and NOT HERPES.


2) LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE


PENILE PENILE PAPULES

Some conditions (a ring of tiny white bumps near the head of the penis) are called PENILE PENILE PAPULES.

To see what this condition is visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hirsuties_papillaris_genitalis
(there is a picture there for you to compare with your condition)

To read up on PPP go to: http://pearlypenilepapules.net/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hirsuties_papillaris_genitalis



FORDYCE''S SPOTS

Some conditions (small skin colored spots or raised bumps that appear on the shaft of the penis or labia) are called
FORDYCE''S SPOTS.

To see what this condition is visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordyce%27s_spot
(there is a picture there for you to compare with your condition)

To read up on FS go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordyce%27s_spot


3) GET HELP IF YOU NEED IT

Skin conditions are very common. There is nothing to be ashamed of. For other skin conditions, including STDs
talk to your family. They should be there to help you. If you can not talk to your family or seek help you
might want to try the following site:

http://www.sworn.org/stdhelp.html
http://www.chicagohelp.org/
http://stdhelp.org/

I hope this reply was helpful for the many dozens or hundreds of people that thought they had an STD when in reality
they only had a NATURAL SKIN CONDITION with nothing to worry about. INFO=KNOWLEDGE! Pass it on.

hey guys,
yea ive had these for about 5 years now, im 18 now, and asked 3 doctors about them, the first, my regular doctor, gave some cream that did nothing, then recomended me to a demotologist who told me nothin, jus said it was normal, which really Genital Wartsed me off, about 2 years later, present day, I told my mom to schedule me another appointment, she has no idea wut it is, i jus tell her i have a rash, so i went to see another dematologist who showed me a medical book with this in it, made me a lil more calm, said there is no cure, only laser surgery can take them away, so i asked him for a number of another doctor who would have more info, so im gonna see about gettin circumcised and the laser surgery, only idk how long my mom will continue payin the bills before she starts asking questions, so i have an appointment in a few weeks, if i get ne good news ill let everyone no, but thanks to everyone whos posted, its been a great relief to no im not alone, makes me be less scared to tell my girlfriend about it before we start gettin more serious and before it gets uncomfortable. THANKS AGAIN

I''m 14, and for atleast the past 3 years I've noticed like pearly penile papules under like the rims on the head of my penis, and some more other places.

I've been reading some of the comments, and like when using toothpaste, is there like a method? Like, how many times a day do I apply, and like do I wash it off right after I put it on?

thank you everyone. I noticed the little things a few months ago and thaught i had a disease of some kind but id never had sex so didnt know what they could be. my confidence is restored (my new girlfriend will be pleased) !
cheers again

Man!! I have had these little bastards since I was 13 (I''m 17 now), and what I noticed was that after I "spanked the monkey" they became a bit more prominent, but they would would go back to normal the next day.

Anyway, I was so worried about it. I thought I might have warts, but I was sure they weren't because warts look alot worse and I have had them for years. I am so relieved to know about this. I read that it was more common in uncircumsized men, and well, I'm not circumsized. They don't really look that attractive on my penies, but I guess I will have to live with themthey are innocuous, right?

I hope they eventually go away, because I think they start going away as you age--or not....

f**k thanks boys ive had these 4 ages (im 16 now) and thought everyone had them till I asked a few of my mates and they all laughed and gave me heaps! so i started stressing out and tryin 2 pop the ones lower down (bad idea) and looking up genital warts on the web! ahahahah im so stoked i found this site, now im just gonna ease off glazing the knuckles and burn my way through a few tubes of colgate ahahah thanks for this boys, all you lads rule!

WOW!. I noticed it when i was 20. Went to the doc ,by looking at it he said it is warts. He treated it 5 or six times and told me the scar don''t go away. But mine looked the same and never made any changes. Now i am 38 and it still look same. I still think my doc was wrong what i have is Pearly Penile Papules. Fro now on i am going to stop worring about it.
