Hi, i'm 14 years old and i am a virgin. Therefore i can not have any HIV. I have these little bumps all over the shaft of my penis, all around. There is like a little line going around on top. I am really confused! They are very visible with an erection, and semi visible without. How do i get rid of them???? Please help ASAP!!!!!
From the symptoms that you have mentioned it can be Fordyce spots or pearly penile papules.Fordyce spots are small, painless, raised, pale or white spots or bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that may appear on the shaft of the penis. The spots are a form of ectopic sebaceous gland, and are not known to be associated with any disease or illness and are of cosmetic concern only.
Pearly penile papules are small dome-shaped to filiform skin-colored papules that typically are located on the sulcus or corona of the glans (glands) penis.They are non-infectious and a natural occurrence on the body.
Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or in case you have additional queries. Kind regards.
Fordyce spots and pearly penile papules cannot be removed as such by any ointment or cream. Treatment of Fordyce spots includes CO2 laser or electro desiccation, TCA chemical peels(temporary treatment),diathermy or laser vaporization and for peraly penile papules ablation using carbon dioxide laser, electrodesiccation with curettage, and excisional surgery reportedly have successfully eliminated lesions.In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this.But they should be got removed only for cosmetic reasons as they are normally found on the penis.
I hope that helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
