Post White bumps around the rim of my head.


The one major problem I have been worrying about is that I have these white bumps, all around the rim of my head.

I went to my GP and he said he did not know what it is. He suggested going to a sex clinic, but I would feel imbarrased incase someone I know sees me and thinks that I have an STF or something.

I am still a virgin, andI have had these bumps for as long as I can remember, I am 19. I am pretty sure I have seen these bumps on other men when watching porn, but it is not often and they don't seem to have as many as me.

It feels like skin to me.

They are called Pearly Penile Papules (PPP). Totally harmless and just a cosmetic thing. There is no effective and easy way to get rid of them. There are some extensive debates about getting rid of them here. you can look around for the thread. It has like 300 posts.
