Answer for: Are Pearly Penile Papules a transmittable disease?

Pearly Penile Papules, also known simply as PPP, are asymptomatic, do not produce any discomfort to those who are affected by them and are not sexually transmissible. They generally tend to appear in uncircumcised males, with ages between 20 and 30 years, but disappear after a certain period of time, even when left untreated. The manifestation of the penile skin condition is not connected to any hygiene issues. They are relatively easy to identify due to the small spots which appear around the glans penis, though they can sometimes be mistaken for certain Sexually Transmitted Diseases, such as genital warts or molluscum contagiosum. Despite certain physical similarities with some types of STDs, it is important to note that Pearly Penile Papules are not transmittable in any way, sexually or otherwise. It is advisable that before reaching any conclusions, you get a correct diagnosis from a specialist.
