Hello,

The problem may be pearly penile papules. Some patients with pearly penile papules may request therapy to alleviate anxiety. Ablation using carbon dioxide laser, electrodesiccation with curettage, and excisional surgery reportedly have successfully eliminated pearly penile papules.

Therefore I suggest consulting a skin specialist for physical examination, diagnosis and treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. K. V. Anand
