Pearly penile papules please help

Can somebody please help me with this it is rlly distressing me alot!!
I have read about peoples cases of pearly penile papules and they always seem to say that thers only one or two rows of these papules and just on the head. Well I am uncircumsised and I not only have them round the head of my penis but all over my foreskin at the end. Theyre not in rows but just scattered around and theres loads of them. They have been growing slowly spreading on my foreskin, I can see loads of small bumps just starting and I know theyre gonna get bigger and it already looks bad so if these keep growing then I feel completely f**ked!
Sorry but it is ruining my life at the moment and other people with pearly penile papules talk about you can hardly notice them but its not just a line or two for me its hundreds!! <IMG SRC="">(
The problem doesnt end there what is freaking me out even more is that they are growing on my top lip and they are small at the momment but they been growing and spreading and I am sooo scared that they might start covering my whole lip. You can see rlly small ones just starting, to see them I have to stretch my lip and look closely but they will end up growing bigger like some of the others on my lip and theres looks like hundred little bumps ready to grow into bigger noticeable ones.
They seem to be growing in small bunches where theyre closely packed together and already on the side of my lip just a little bit (at the moment)where the smalls bumps are growing it looks like a tiny bit of my lip is part of my normal white skin cos theres so many small bumps grouped together.
I went to the doctor and she said if u had treatment on your lips to get them away then they'll leave scars probably worse than the bumps themselves but if the bumps keep growing then I wont want to go out in public and that is rlly scaring me alot!!!!
I am only 21 and white please can somebody help me in any way cos I rlly cant live with the fear of all this its depressing me deeply!!

soz bout the length of this message.

What treatment is the doctor proposing? What was the diagnosis? Are they genital warts or something else?

My doctor didnt propose any treatment she just thought it wud be best to leave them cos she cudnt notice anything on my lips from where she was sitting, but the point is they are growing and spreading and they probably will become noticable. She did say I could go to a dermatolgist but that wud cost a bit of money.
She didnt tell me what they were at all, I only showed her the ones on my lips.
I should have probably explained more how bad it was making me feel!

Re: Pearly penile papules please help

Without actually seeing the growths, it is difficult to even conjecture as to what they could be caused by. What sort of doctor was this?

My suggestion is to get a second opinion. Ask for a diagnosis and an explanation as to what they are (in their opinion). Ask what your treatment options are and explain the high level of anxiety you are experiencing.

Don't leave the office until you get the answers to your questions.

The bottom line is that no one is going to be able to diagnose this over the internet. You must seek medical advice from a licensed practitioner. I wish I could be of more help, but without seeing the growths in question, there's just no way.

Good luck!
