It is just a few white spots on my penis head and they are in a row. I don't feel it but I want to know what it is. I think it might be ppp
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.


It most likely is pearly penile papules, which are normal.

Have you always had them?

Can you post a picture?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not sure I just saw them the other day their but they are very small and vague
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.

PPPs can be quite small or larger. Either way they are perfectly normal, and usually do appear in a line around the head of the penis. Sometimes they completely encircle the head, and sometimes there are just a few here and there.

Please let me know if you need additional information.

Best regards,

Is their a cure or something to get rid of it?
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.

There isn't a cure for something that is natural. Since they are normal, there is reason to get rid of them. Some men consult with a cosmetic surgeon to have them removed by laser or other method. However, this is purely a cosmetic procedure, not covered by insurance.

Kind regards,
