PPP is benign and treatable  April 14, 2011 2:21 PM

It is important to understand what PPP is (a mostly cosmetic, treatable skin condition that is not dangerous) and what it is not (an STD, cancer, etc.) The first thing you have to do is get it looked at by your physician and make sure the diagnosis is PPP and nothing else. Assuming it is PPP, the next step is to decide whether you want to just leave it alone (a perfectly reasonable option) or to treat it. If you decide to treat it, there are a few options available. I think that fractional CO2 is the most effective and quick treatment option and that is what we do in my office. For more information, you can take a look at the PPP page on my website: http://www.westsidemedicalspa.com/pearly-penile-papules.html
