Sexually Transmitted Diseases/white bumps



Hello, I am a 19 yo male, for the past 2 years I had these small white bumps near urethra/meatus ... what could it be? I never had sex, I also have PPP and predispose to acne ( when i would masturbate sometimes i've tend to rub that area with finger, can that be the cause? ... what could it be and how can I get rid of it? ... and also about PPP, could it be gone using toothpaste method ( heard of it on the internet ) srry for my english ... Thank You

Hi Lukas,

They're called papules and exist under the skin like a sebaceous cyst and in fact are very common and tend to come and go as they please. With that said, there is no treatment I know of to get rid of them because I've had mine for going on 15 years! They can shrink and then grown somewhere else, kind of like Fordyce's spots, but Fordyce's appears in clusters and mine are spread out kind of like yours. If this concerns you further, please consult your primary care provider or specialist for more information and best wishes.
