I've got these tiny white spots on the edge of my foreskin. They're not painless or itchy. They're all over the tip of my foreskin, some areas of the top of my foreskin have more of these spots than others.
Has anyone else got these? Or can anyone suggest what they may be? As i am very reluctant to have intercourse with these spots on show.
Thanks<p>[This message has been edited by Fear95 (edited 12-09-2001).]
Sounds like Pearly Penile Papules, a fairly common condition. They aren't an STD and there is really nothing you can do about them. They really are not a problem. Remember, you have more chance to realize what's on your penis than anyone else....cuz you're looking at it. Chances are anyone you're having sex with isn't gonna notice, and if she does...explain it as part of the equipment and "move on" with your the business at hand!
But reading through the other thread on this subject, it sounded as if PPP was only found on the penis head itself and not on the foreskin- which is where it is on mine. Can it be on the foreskin aswell?
I have these tiny white dots also, but only on the bottom side of the foreskin below the glans on either side of the frenulum. I asked a urologist about these while beieng treated for HPV and he said they were just tiny cysts. I didn't get into how or why they turned up. I was embarassed enough just being there. BTW, they showed up many years earlier when I was about 15. I don't know if we have the same thing but you should see a doctor for peace of mind.
I've been looking around the net and can't find any instances where PPP appears exclusively on the foreskin, which leads me to think i haven't got this PPP thing,althouh the pics i've seen do look the same as my spots. Being a 18 year old virgin, it's VERY unlikely that it's an STD. So they may be cancerous cells of some sort <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> having said that, i've had them for over 3 years without any other effects on my health. I guess the only way to find out what they are is go to a doc which is going to be embarrsing to say the least. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/redface.gif">
Sure, going to the doc will be the only way to truly find out. And besides, you need to get in the practice of the doc checking things out anyway. I hate it too, but remember that they see hundreds of penises and look at them, check them out and such...its their job! Don't worry about it, and if your friend decides to "rise to the occasion" then try to ignore it and know that that happens all the time to us with our docs and its a natural response to stimulation and it isn't always sexual!
Hi Fear95 I have exactly what you have.
i also went on the net looking up about ppp but it never used to say anything about it being on the foreskin.
I have exactly what you describe on my foreskin and annoyingly they seem to be spreading more as time goes by.
Im 21 and I had them since about 14 when there were hardly any at all on my foreskin but now there is loads and Im scared about having sexual relationships <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">
Also now the same kind of spots seem to be growing on my top lip and that is rlly freaking me out!
Please if ur reading this cud I have your email so I can talk to you about this cos i havent found anyone else at all on the net that has seemingly what i have and Id like to see if you have any signs of those spots on your lips?
I don't have a foreskin (unfortunately) but I do have those spots on my lips. I was worried about them when I was young and went to a doctor. She said they were just glands with fatty material in them and not to worry, there was nothing I could do about them. Every couple of years one gets bigger than the others and I can squeeze a bit of material out of it. Then it shrinks and settles down. Otherwise I have no trouble with them and no girlfriend or my wife has ever noticed them unless i point them out. I am sure the glands on your foreskin are also your white bumps. I have them on my shaft and scrotum. Lots of young guys, cut and intact, write in worried about these white bumps but they are totally normal. No girl will comment on them because everybody past puberty has them so just relax and enjoy your body as it is.
Hi. Has anyone here heard of (PENIS) PLANUS LICHENS ?
my husband is NOT circumsized, he had these white dot things....... that come out on the head of his penis, and along the shaft...hence the foreskin. this is what the doc called them.I went in to the appointment as i was concerned and pregnant. He said they were not contagious, brought on by stress, gave him a cortisone cream that he had to put on 4x a day. took 2 weeks, but they went away.
