This blockage of glands often causes lumps which are full of creamy substance causing the whitish appearance of the pearly penile papules.

Penile papules do not pose any threat to a mans health. However, it can cause severe damage to self-esteem as the penis might look unacceptable and so he may not be able to perform sexually. It might even be confused for some sexually transmitted disease, if not consulted with a doctor.

Even though these papules are harmless, there is nothing wrong with seeking to get your confidence back. The easiest way is to get a carbon dioxide laser treatment. No numbing injections are applied. The doctor just numb the area with any topical anesthetic. The laser is projected via a beam. The size of the laser is as much as the tip of a sharpened pencil. This prevents any sort of damage to the skin of the penis.

After the treatment, most patients recover by the next day. There might be some swelling but that too vanishes in a couple of days. There is no risk of scarring or infection or any other serious complication. Pearly penile papules should be treated after diagnosis so that the patient does not have to undergo any sort of embarrassing situations.

While this form of treatment works for some men, it can be expensive. If the carbon dioxide laser treatment does not sound right for you, investigate some of the more proven and reliable remedies you can try at home.
