These are known as pearly penile papules which are totally normal and completely harmless. They are not sexually transmitted. You do not need to treat them but if you wish to remove them, a dermatologist can freeze them off.Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.

Is it normal for them to hurt I also been dealing with high blood pressure and elevated blood sugar. Could this also be playing a rule? I do get a little red on my glands at times
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 5 months ago.
They should not hurt. With elevated blood sugar, it's common to have a fungal infections which can be painful. I would use an OTC antifungal ointment such as clotrimazole 1% twice a day along with hydrocortisone 1% twice a day for 1-2 weeks.
