Do You Have A Spotted Dick?
As a child we were often given a steamed pudding made of suet, flour and raisins. It was called Spotted Dick and was lovely. So I could not resist making the pun.
But thats the only funny part of this article. When you look down on your John Thomas and see that there are spots where there shouldn’t be then the first reaction is fear followed by shame. I know because it happened to me when I was 20.
I was so worried after a couple of days that I had to go to my Dad and show him to ask for his advice. It was pretty traumatic and he grilled me on what I had been up to as he had never seen those little white lumps on his penis!
He sent me off to the family doctor who looked and grunted and then gave me a prescription for a cream which I had to apply. It smelled awful and two days later all the skin on the purple head of my dick started to peel off.Boy did it itch!
Then I was really scared thinking that I would never have sex again because my cock was dieing and would soon drop off.
Thankfully it did not and the pearly white spots went away. They did return a couple of times over the next 10 years but, touch wood, have never came back.
Since then I have learned that they are called Pearly Penile Papules or to give them their medical title Hirsuties Papillaris Genitalis
The web tells me that 60% of males have or have had ppp and that it is most common in men between the ages of 20 and 30.
So it got me at exactly that age.
What Can Be Done To Remove PPP
Well the first thing is to make sure that they are indeed papules of the pearly penile variety. The picture above shows them at the base of the glans and you can see that they are white…hence the term “pearly”.
Also notice that they are each very small whereas a genital wart would be much bigger.
The fact that they are white and are not on the shaft indicates that they are not Fordyce Spots which I explain later.
As you browse round the internet looking for tips for pearly penile papules removal at home you will find a wealth of sites that promote all sorts of treatments some of which even refer to using Toothpaste. I am no exception as you will see by going here or clicking the banner below the neat little video “wot I did”.
But the thing to bear in mind is that ppp is harmless. No one really knows why it occurs and it is certainly not an STD. They do not interfere with or hinder sex. They are not transferable nor are they infectious.
They just dont look very nice
But whatever you do please do NOT try and squeeze them. They are not those sort of spots and will bleed and get sore if you try. And scratching them will drive you mad even if they itch like crazy.
What are the Spots on The Shaft?
If they look like goosebumps and are yellowish or red then they are probably Fordyce Spots. They can sometimes be white but always look more like a rash.
This picture taken of the shaft of the penis should show you what I mean especially if you compare it with the picture above.
Note the grouping and the size. They do not look like warts or those little white papules.
They often appear on the shaft, the scrotum, the lips and on a female around the labia. Again they are perfectly harmless and should not interfere with sexual activity.
Apparently they arise as a result of something going on in the follicles of the skin concerning the sebaceous glands (these produce natural oils for the skin).
But again they just don’t look very nice. And you should ask yourself just how many people apart from yourself is ever going to see them.
My conclusion for what it is worth is that any sort of removal is purely cosmetic and for self esteem purposes. If getting rid of them makes you feel better then go for it.
Use the widget ( the thing with the percentage savings on it) to find a book on Amazon that explains everything on treatments for Fordyce Spot removal on lips, penis etc. Its a kindle book so its dirt cheap.
