PPP or is it?

I've read about PPP and just a week or so ago i got a little swollen pimple type at the base of my penis. I tried to pop it thinkning it was an ingrown from shaving down there. Another is there and another and it seems that i now have a whole bunch (not a ton but say 10 little pinhead size) of pimples but they are hardened now and seem to be going away ( they run from the base to right below the head on one side)...I'm confused, I don't think it's herpes b/c i've got herpes but not the genital kind and i know what it looks like when i get it on my skin..So my question is..Is it ppp and am i going crazy or is it something else entirely diff that i havent thought of?

Re: PPP or is it?

Well, I'm not sure what that is, but its definitely not pearly penile papules (ppp). PPP's are small skin colored bumps, almost like tiny fingers that form on the ridge of the glans. They don't exist anywhere but on the glans. So if you've got bumps on the penis shaft skin, that's not ppp.

Are you sure its not those normal bumps that are there with almost all guys at the base of the penis? Not all of them have to have hair growing from them.

Re: PPP or is it?

they are just fleshy white little pimples that havent changed really in a week or so...
They haven't spread to anywhere like if it was herpes.
They look like a consolidated few tiny tiny bumps along the right side of the penis and 2 or 3 on the bottom underneath.

I think those are just the normal little bumps on the shaft of the penis that all grown males have. How old are you BTW?

Re: PPP or is it?

im 23...They just appeared last week after shaving a little bit down there...Right, I was thinkning razor burn but they have turned (some) into whitish heads BUT not the kind you could really pop. They don't itch, they don't burn.
I have had a wart on my thumb and this looks nothing like that..should i be worried?
any extra steps i can take? doctor (what kind)?

Re: PPP or is it?

Sounds to me that its just part of the equipment and could have been highlighted after the shave. If they aren't changing in color or size then I suspect they are just hair follicles or tiny pimple like things. Pretty common to have that also!
