Hi,

Welcome to XXXXXXX

Hydrogen peroxide is an effective cleaning agent only.

It is not an effective agent to reduce bacterial infections of lesions. It is a disinfectant/antiseptic for treating wounds is a misconception.

If applied on glans, it can cause irritation and blistering.

Thus you should not use it on Penis.

To get rid of pearly penile papules and fordyce spots on penis, you should consult a Skin specialist.

With good wishes,
