Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Bump under foreskin


Penis with unknown bumps
Penis with unknown bum  
Hey, I would just like to find out what this might be. I know I have had this since I was a child only from a friend discussing ppp that I wondered what this might be. I have never had sex and it is not painful hope you can help.

Apologies for the poor image quality.

Hi Thomas,

Indeed your friend would be correct, as I see penile pearly papules as well, which are harmless and completely benign. People, like myself, live with them forever, and they never cause any problems. The fact that you only have three and I have TONS is actually quite extraordinary, but I think that's because your uncircumcised and I think that's a distinction between men. Remember not to pick at them as they are a part of your skin and doing so would lead to permanent scarring. If you have follow up let me know.
