What is This White Stringy Mucous Film That Develops Every Morning on Your Mouth Right After Brushing Teeth? A Gooey Slime Discharge

Well, I’ve been having this issue for quite sometime and wondered what is this white stringy mucous that develops on my inner cheek right after i brush my teeth.

I finally found the answer to it.

This is usually caused by a toothpaste or mouthwash that burns or necrolizes the very sensitive outer tissue of the oral cavity. The resulting damage causes the dead tissue to collect into globs or peel off in thin sheets when you move your tongue across the gums or cheeks, or eat food.

If you don’t want this to happen, do not use any toothpaste that contains any type of peroxide or whitener (other than silica). Don’t use an alcohol based mouthwash.

Baking soda can cause this as well.

Buy a ‘sensitive’ toothpaste like Sensodyne or a generic equivalent and this problem should go away. I’ve found that Mentadent P and Sensodyne Pro Enamel don’t leave any slime, but Sensodyne Gentle Whitening does.

Some medications can also cause this to happen by itself or exacerbate the damage caused by whitening toothpastes.

So to conclude, if you don’t like to burn the oral tissue and don’t like picking this slimy white mucous on your mouth….then use a mild toothpaste without harsh whitening ingredients.

Crest Pro Health, and Colgate also seem to cause this.

But peroxide is an important ingredient in any teeth whitening agent

So if you want shining white teeth, probably you could look for something that bring instant results and don’t use any whitening toothpaste for long time besides it should not hurt enamel.

Thankfully, a dentist from the USA recognised these problems and invented a remedy that would enable normal everyday people to achieve great looking teeth risk free on a budget. 

His name is Dr George Madray and in 1989 he cleverly devised the ‘Dr George’s Dental White’ formula comprising of professional strength gel only used in dental surgeries that when applied upon tooth enamel removes the staining and discolouration leaving you with enviable gleaming white teeth. And best of all, does not soften and harm teeth enamel.

It comes directly from the manufacturer so you can be sure you are purchasing a high quality product at a low cost. 

‘Dr George’s Dental White’ kit is very simple to use. Other kits can be fiddly, awkward, time consuming and messy, with this kit you just follow the easy 4 step process. Within 30 minutes you will see a difference in the shade of your teeth.The gel lasts up to 2 years if properly stored so you really are getting a lot for your money without the need for replacing frequently.

You will be hard pushed to find any home whitening kit as professional, efficient and as safe as this. The results are that of just out of a dentist surgery, no-one will know that you have whitened your own teeth for just a fraction of the price you would pay for professional whitening.

    Can you develop ‘pearly white papules’ on the foreskin?
    Most photos on the internet only show them on the glands of the penis and I was wondering if you could accually develop them on the foreskin itself? If possible and you provide sources.

    Thank you

    • Aidan Connor says:

      Yeap, it’s possible. It’s also possible to get it on the head of the penis. A lot of the time they are hair follucules and completely benign to anything foreign.

  2. Photato says:

    Does Pearly White Papules have a pattern of growth?
    Do they grow gradually over years…or very quickly in any given year?
    Also, are they less common to develop in males over 20? I ask this one cause I hear many boys get it at 17.

    • Anonymous says:

      Yes, PPPs grow over the years. They are most common in men 17-40 years old. They can be cured at home.

    • ttpawpaw says:

      Hirsuties papillaris genitalis (more commonly referred to as ‘pearly penile papules’, or PPP) is a clinical skin condition of the male genital organs. It is a harmless anatomical variation with no malignant potential, although it can be mistaken for warts by inexperienced doctors. The papules appear as one or several rows of small, flesh-colored, smooth, dome-topped bumps situated circumferentially around the corona or sulcus of the glans penis. Uncommonly, lesions may extend onto the glans penis. It is not a sexually transmitted disease. The bumps are however extremely sensitive and many sufferers view this sensitivity as unwelcome. Various other studies have shown that the number may be in the interval between 8% and 48%, varying with region and whether or not the subjects are circumcised. Lesions typically are asymptomatic and persist throughout life; however, they gradually may become less noticeable with increased age.pp

    Difference between Pearly Penile Papules and Herpes????
    I have this tiny white dots on the frenulum of my penis. I don’t know if it’s just a pearly penile papules (which is common among men) or herpes. It’s not itchy or anything. How can I tell which is which? what’s the difference between the two??

    Can you get pearly penile papules arounnd the uretharal opening (jap’s eye)?
    I’ve recently been to the GP, 3 times! the first time i was diagnosed with thrush and given a cream, then i went back because the cream didnt work and i was given a stronger cream, third time i was diagnosed with genital warts and told to go to the GUM clinic.
    i went to the GUM clinic and was told that the white papules are completely normal and there is nothing to worry about etc. but after looking at pictures on the internet ive realised that there are non around the japs eye, can you get them here?
    Please help,

    • advice guru and mom says:

      as a nurse and without seeing it I would say stop messing with the Internet to try to figure it out go to a real doctor like a urologist who specializes in these issue and get some real help. if you are not satisfied with answer get a second opinion. if you are having sex and that is why you are worried about it. remember there are diseases like HIV, aids , herpes and more out there waiting for the man who is sleeping with every girl he can and having casual sex literally risking their lives doing it. One girl One night One encounter of sex with the wrong girl can ruin your life with pregnancy, or disease. remember condoms are never 100% safe they break, they fall off and they sometimes have holes. and oral sex can transmit disease just as easily as well all it takes is a small cut, cavity or coldsore to allow disease to enter blood stream. be smart the only safe sex is your hand and save sex for marriage. And go make another appointment to make sure you are healthy and safe before you have any kind of sex again. good luck

    Im pretty sure I have pearly penile papules?
    Im pretty sur e I have it because the white bumps look the same as the other one and I have never had sex so it cant be a STD the pearly penile papules make my dick very sensitive almost to the point where its painfull to wash my dick (I just got out of the shower I was shaking because it hurt so bad) now I wanna know is there away I can get rid of them or at least make them less sensitive with out me going to the doctor I wanna do this because I am 15 and its going to be weird if my mom and Dad find out or my friends find out.

    • Mandarin2 says:

      This is strange because PPP are usually painless

      Have you checked they are PPP ?

      Sound to me like you have ripped your foreskin back early and have bits of epithelium

      stuck to the glans.

      Pull your foreskin forward and leave it there for 6 days and DON’T wash it.

      And see if it feels better when it’s healed.

      If you are circumcised, I would guess you’re using soap on it.

    White bump with black centre on penis?
    Hey dudes. I have pearly penile papules but I’ve also noticed a small white lump, about 3mm, with a black centre. I’ve had these before for as long as i remember and I remember one crusting over and falling off which left a small mark. I’m still a virgin and as I say i’ve had them for a while so i don’t think its anything seriously malicious but could you help me with what they actually are? I’ve thought hair follicles but there doesn’t appear to be a protruding hair.

    • Rick A says:

      i dunno if those are fordyce spot..

      it seems to be like a black head..

      they dont just appear on your face.. it maybe present on different parts of your body where there are hair follicles, sebaceous glands and alike..

      go to your doctor, have it checked.. dont do self medication..

      dont wait for it to get worse.. since u said it left a mark after that..

      u would want your penis to be full of scars dont you?

    I seem to have little red bumps around the head of my penis.?
    I’ve doing lots of research about this and i can’t seem to figure out what they are..everytime I look up red bumps the pearly white papules pop up and i know I dont have that..
    the bumps don’t itch they dont even bother me at all.. and the scary thing is they popped up after i had oral sex with my girlfriend but she had a “dead” cold sore. (STUPID MISTAKE) but i went to the doctors and he said its not herpes so i didnt worry after that.. but these bumps have been there for almost a month or so…and she knows about this and since then we’ve had sex a few times..
    thing is im 16. im sexually active and i dont know what these are..the symptoms i have are
    small red bumps around my head
    slight dryness of my head
    and redness
    thats about it. no itching, no irritation.. nothing really..

    please help!

    • GrimZ X says:

      Ugh…the name of what you have escapes me right now but I know exactly what you’re talking about. It isn’t an STD: it’s actually a form of acne. Search google for “penile acne” or along those lines, there is a wikipedia site for it with pictures so you can compare and see if that is what you have.

    pearly penile papules?
    Im 17 and i found LOADS of little and medium sized white spots all over my penis (especially the area where you sack and penis join up) and scrotum i haven’t had sex in a while so its not a transmitted disease, i dunno what to do, if i should see a GP or just keep washing my penis until it goes away
    Is this common with teenagers and men?

  14. Nguyen P says:

    Is pearly penile papules contagious and dangerous?
    im a 17 years old, never had sex before, few day ago while i was in bathroom i found some white dot on the side of my penis, it circularly around my penis in a circular pattern you can only spot them when the penis is erected. I look up on Google and found what the name of it, but couldn’t find the cause or the effect of it, is it something i really need to be worry or it just something common but not dangerous

    • LYNN W says:

      It is nothing you need to worry about. It is not an STD. They are very common in men and sometimes disappear and reappear on their own, If you are embarrassed by them, they can be removed by a laser by a dermatologist. By the way, doctors really don’t know why some people get them and some don’t. They are more common in circumcised men though.

    Pearly penile papules – scared please help?
    Hi.. So I’m a 16 year old male and for the past year I have noticed on the rims of my penis head, several white little bumps have started to develop. This scared me when I first noticed this because I thought it may be an STD or something, but I’m a virgin, so it’s not possible? I wash and clean my penis good and shower everyday, so it’s definitely nothing to do with Hygiene.. I did some more research on what it could be and found these little bumps on my penis look exactly like a condition called “Pearly Penile Papules” I found on google. They are not an STD, and it’s just a normal skin variation. My only concerns are, is how my doctor is going to react to seeing them (Is he going to mistake it for something like HPV?) And how my girlfriend is going to react. (She is most likely going to think it’s an STD.) I’ve been in a serious relationship with my girlfriend for about 4 months, and were about to the stage where we want to take it to the next level.. but I’m afraid when she sees the bumps she will get freaked out and become disgusted.. Should I talk to her about it before having intercourse? Any advice would be really appreciated.. I’ve been really depressed about this lately..

    Small, white, unpoppable “pimples” on penis??!?
    Well, I’ve had these for about a year now. They come and go, but lately they’ve been staying longer and getting bigger. They occur in clusters as well. They’re really white and small and I can’t pop them. But they are REALLY distinguishable. They don’t really come off the skin that much. I’ve looked at tons of pictures of things you can have on your penis. It doesn’t look like herpes or genital warts or anything serious. It sorta looks like Pearly Penile Papules…I’m not sure. But I’ve done a lot of research but still can’t find anything solid. This, rash, or outbreak, or whatever the hell it is, occurs right at the end of my shaft.

    What do you think it is? They occur in clusters, they are white and small, yet easily distinguishable. They can’t be popped. and they occur on the inside of my foreskin. [I’m uncut]

    • xtremelyeuro says:

      That sounds really bad. Dude, why the heck did you do nothing for a year? Don’t you get health care? Go see a doctor about it.

      Listen, it may not be serious at all. But let your doctor figure that out. As of now, you still don’t know exactly what this condition is. Your health isn’t worth gambling with.

    How can i eliminate these pearly penile papules without surgery, plz help me, these are embarrassing?
    i’ve had them since i can remember and i always thought something was wrong with me till i researched it and i’ve found out that it’s common in uncircumsiced affrican americans ( i’m white-black and uncircumcised) so now that i know it’s ok that i have them i still wanna get rid of them plz help me :(

    • jasonm512 says:

      Essentially you can’t. It’s very common in all races, not necessarily just african americans. I’m totally white and uncut, I have them and they are called “Fordyces Spots” to that effect, I believe they are just oil glands that are visible. If you were circumcised then they wouldn’t be as evident because they would not be in a moist environment. I really don’t suggest you try and remove them.

    Pearly Penile Papules?
    I don’t know about anybody else, but I like to explore my man’s body from head to toe. So I’s like exploring his penis and realize that he got white bumps on the base of his shaft (below tip area). So I asked hime about it and he says the doctors say the they are harmless and not sexually transmitted so he is ok. I don’t think he knows what it is and I don’t think he intends to find out anything further so II deceided to surf the net and the closest thing I found to his problem is what is known as Pearly Penile Papules. Does he have this?

    What is the difference between Genital Warts and Pearly Penile Papules?
    I need people to be honest and please dont say anything mean the info i’m about to give you may disturb some people but please help…

    At first me and my husband thought we had genital warts but i have no symptoms or markings or bumps around my vagina. I did hours of research of looking around google for pictures of stds and stuff.. a few pictures i found were identicle to the markings on his penus they are white things going around the glands in which they are called Pearly Penile Papules. it is not an std and infact harmless. and only found in men.. usually men that are uncircumsized ( my husband is uncircumsized) and he’s never sick or anything and neither am i.. and it also said they are similar to genital warts and can be mistaken for them but g.w.is an std… but i have nothing on me?? we’ve been having sex for 2 years… i’m praying that he has ppp instead of g.w. so what is the difference??? I can i be exactly sure??
    yes i know we should go see a doctor but we don’t have the $ right now for more bills.. we are stuck in a financial problem right now..

    • kristy d says:

      Pearly penile papules only grow around the glans of the penis. They form from fiborous tissue cells. They are common and can be removed with laser or other surgery. Genital warts-STD- can form anywhere on the penile skin. Most of the time if you develop the virus you have it for life and can pass it on to your partner.

    White bumps on penis(possibly Pearly Penile Papules)?
    First off , i am 15 , uncircumcised and i have never had sex.
    I had noticed these white bumps around the base of my penis and on the back side of the shaft possibly a couple of years ago.They cause no pain at all , and cause no irritation whatsoever.But , obviously they still make me uncomfortable in sexual situations.A while back i had enough guts to ask my doctor to take a look , which she did , and told me to wash it with soap and water more often.This doesn’t really seem to help.Just the other day i received oral sex and the girl miraculously didn’t notice the bumps.I sure as hell know i wont be this lucky forever , and i don’t feel like being rejected or not believed in future situations.If anyone out there knows any type of cure , or treatment that i could use to deal with these bumps , please let me know.Thanks.

    • Joe K says:

      sounds like penile papules – which is a harmless genetic condition (washing won’t make them go away) – just learn that that’s what you’ve got and its not gonna hurt anyone or yourself – its thought that around 30-40% of uncircumsized men have then, so don’t worry about it

  23. vijaysinghrajpoot says:

    It sounds like Pearly penile papules: it every man have that type pimple?
    It sounds like Pearly penile papules:

    These small papules are best described as embryological remnants. They are usually located around the circumference of the crown of the glans penis. It can be a single lesion but usually They are multiple in number and small (about 1-3mm).

    They usually appear as yellow-white, domelike papules arranged in a row of multiple-grouped lesions along the corona and sulcus of the glans in adolescent males

    how do you tell if you have pearly vaginal papules or warts?
    I have white-ish bumps on my vulva, I have been tested for STDs as far as I know the gonorrhea I contracted has been gone about 2 or 3 weeks, everything else was supposedly negative. I got tested pretty soon after I had sex with an infected person though, thats why I’m wondering if it was too soon for something else to show up. I’ve looked at pictures, they do look like pearly papules, but im not sure. There is a a little soreness in the vulva, but the bumps don’t hurt and they don’t itch. I just don’t know how to tell the difference between genital warts and papules. Please tell me specific differences if there are any. Could I possibly have the beginning stages of HPV or Herpes? Should I get tested again or go to a doctor?

    • Lily L says:

      You get a biopsy.

      And btw, you were probably not tested for HPV. Even if you were tested for HPV, the test they give only tests for high risk (cancer causing ) strains and not low risk (warts causing) strains.

      If they don’t look like warts, they probably aren’t warts. And my understanding is that herpes is usually painful. Seem like nothing to me. Or maybe some tiny molluscum bumps. That can look very similar to pearly papules. Get it checked out.

    if i just had a couple of noticeable tiny white bumps (looks like tiny <1mm white pimple) not on the head of penis, but just below the head, and under the penis, when i retract my foreskin Would this be PPP?
    i know that PPP can form in multples right around under the bell head of the penis, but if i only have about 4 bumps, 2 on one side and 2 on the other side of the penis, would this also be PPP?
    I am getting a bit worried, and i just want to get some info from your opinions b4 i head off to doctor.
    i am still a virgin, and have only masturbated.
    or would this description fit more under fordyce spots

    • tvm209 says:

      To set your mind at ease from the start, pearly penile papules are completely benign. Many men mistakenly think they have acquired a sexually transmitted disease or developed genital warts when they first notice the lumps. They are not a symptom of an STD. There is really no known reason why the bumps form, but it has nothing to do with sexual activity or personal hygiene.

      These bumps are very common, especially among men in their twenties and thirties. Uncircumcised men also report a high occurrence of the papules as well.

      Throughout your lifetime, it is possible that the bumps will appear and disappear on their own. Even though they are harmless, do not pick at them or try to pop them. You can cause some serious damage- scarring and infection can occur.

      Since you are not sexually active it is HIGHLY unlikely that it is anything else.

      BTW – fordyce spots usually are yellowish in appearance and more flat and spread out looking, PPP look more like whitehead pimples. Both are totally harmless, but fordyce is pretty unlikely – more rare.

  30. Nate V says:

    Is it possible to get PPP (pearly penile papules) on the shaft of your penis?
    I’m 15 years old and i think I have PPP. The only thing is that it’s on the shaft of my penis, not the head. I think it might be possible that they are clogged or blocked hair follicles or sweat glands or something. If it is something clogged, is there any way to unclog it? I’m afraid to get intimate because of what these might be an their ugly appearance. They are just little white bumps that cannot be popped. No irritation or anything. Any suggestions will be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

    • Angry Pandas Are Dangerous says:

      No. It sounds like you have what is known as Fordyce’s Spots. There is not standard treatment and they are not dangerous in any way. Treatment is not recommended.


    Why are white bumps on my…?
    There are white bumps on my penis, i know its not pearly penile papules because it is only on the bottom and sides of my penis “neck”

    small white bumps on my penis?
    i am 14 years old, and i have these little yellowish white bumps on my penis. they are the same as pearly penile papules, except on the ridge of the corona of my penis. i have the penile papules on my foreskin, and i know they are normal for a boy going through puberty, but is it normal to have it in the mucosa part inside the foreskin, on the ridge of the corona? is it possible that i may have some sort of std without ever having sexual intercourse?
    also, can i please get some real answers? something better than these immature, middle-school kid ones? i really don’t want to waste my time reading some teenage girl’s post that just says “eew std.” and if you are not a teenage girl, i suggest you mature a little more before posting little comments like that have no answer on a website that’s supposed to be for.. answers.

    • bienrad says:

      if they are on the ridge of the corona they ARE pearly penile papules
      if there are spot on the skin those are fordyces spots

      fordyces spots and penile papules are two different things, both are normal and harmless

    okay well i have heaps of white head little bump things around my labia and they look a bit like pearly penile papules but im a female.

    and i know i dont have crabs

    they are a bit itchy at times
    but i have like a redish rash on my labia aswell where they are.
    There is like a line full on tiny ones with a rash which is the only itchy part.

    Please help meee!

    Can girls get pearly penile papules as well?
    yeah i always shave, its like on the inside of my vagina. Like the soft skin when you open the lips they are like every where. Could this be caused by mastribating too much?

    • HoldMeCloser says:

      Have you shaved down there recently?

      Haha. i don’t think its from masturbating. no worries….

      I’m going to guess that it is from shaving. Your skin gets dry and ingrown hairs as well as bumps form on the vagina where you have shaved. Ingrown hairs look like pimples…with the whiteheads on the top. Just in case, get it checked out by a doctor if you are that nervous!! If you want to see if it is because of shaving or not, try not shaving for a week or two and see if they start to go away!!

      Best of luck!! =]

    Male White bumps IN foreskin? Genital warts yet virgin?
    So i have had these for over 2 years, but i got curious and i searched the internet for “Genital Warts”, and i found similar things yet they look alot bigger and poofier. xP
    Mine are tiny white spots in the INNER foreskin. They aren’t fordyce’s spots or pearly penile papules. I have had a physical before and he tested my urine and blood, and i was healthy. Im 14 and a virgin i do masterbate. He didn’t really check the foreskin like pull it back, but i wish he had. They are barely visible and don’t bother me at all. They kinda smell though :p Even after i wash down there.
    Help me. I am worried about this deeply. :P
    ectopic sebaceous glands is right ! :)
    I looked it up and it’s right. Thanks!!! Exactly what it looks like! Phew what a relief! Thanks once again.

    • Leo says:

      The tiny bumps on the skin of your penis are most likely “ectopic sebaceous glands,” and they are completely normal. They may contain a small amount of white waxy material called sebum, but they are not infectious and do not require treatment.

      Odor in uncircumcised males is often related to hygiene. Are you able to fully retract your foreskin completely over the glans (head) of your penis? Is there any white, cheesy material (smegma) present underneath? It’s important to completely retract your foreskin each time you urinate and clean daily when you shower or bathe.

      We are unsure what you mean by “tiny fungal spots around the head of my penis.” Uncircumcised males can get a fungal infection under the foreskin (called Candida balanitis), especially if they have diabetes or are taking antibiotics. This can be treated with the same non-prescription creams used to treat yeast vaginitis in females. In contrast, scabies produces intensely itchy red spots on affected skin and requires a prescription cream for treatment

    White Bumps on my penis?
    im 14 yrs old, my penis is uncut, and im a virgin. I have little small white bumps onmy penis, they look EXACTLY like pimples. they are on the very tip of my foreskin where the head is and there are some on the head but they are less noticeable. Im not sure if this is pearly penile papules because the pictures ive seen of them are way bigger than what i have, they dont stick out so much also. they are just flat on there like if you had a small pimple on your face. what are they? since they looked like pimples i tried popping one but they are impossible to pop. i dont have the best relationship with my parents so i dont want to tell them. and i cant see a doctor because they are the only ones that can take me. if your a doctor can you help? please dont answer “go tell your parents” after i specifically said i dont want to

    • Harriet says:

      Could be PPP just looking a bit different. Hair follicles? (They’re usually at the base though.) What about Fordyce spots? Also some guys just have little white bumps on their foreskin, they’re normal but I don’t know what they are.

      It’s probably nothing to worry about if they don’t hurt and you haven’t had sex, but if you are concerned then you would have to see a doctor.

    Pearly Penile Papules !!!Help Me!!?
    I have some small white bumps on my penis, initially I thought the were genital worts but the i learn that they are called Pearly Penile Papules. I know that they are not harmful, and that several guys have them–but I really need to get the rid of these things because they are really embarrassing.

    I think that I can have them lazared off–but i dont know how much it will cost. I have also heard of all kinds of remedies like tooth paste, antibiotics, and other crazy methods. This is really serious for me guys so please give me quality response. Thank you.

    • The mom says:

      Truthfully, do you want to risk the health and welfare of your precious possession to home remedies? The fact is, the best person to help you with this is a urologist. They can be removed with a CO2 laser. However, be advised that laser removal can still leave scarring and cause some loss of sensation. There really isn’t any reason to be embarrassed about having them, though. In the course of my career, I’ve seen lots of fellows with them. I’ve never heard of anyone being teased about them, or being rejected as a lover because of them though. Aside from a doctor, rarely a nurse, or perhaps a very intimate acquaintance- nobody except you is going to see them or notice them. It’s not like they are on your forehead. I know it’s a sensitive issue to you, and I’m not trying to make fun of you. I’m just trying to get you to see them as the small and insignificant thing they are, and to learn to accept them if at all possible. If you just feel you can’t, then you need to see the urologist. Then you can learn all about the procedure to remove them, all the risks, and the price of having it done- at least to your wallet. Then you can make a truly informed decision. Personally, I’d recommend learning to accept them as a natural part of yourself. Chances are they will actually decrease in size as you get older. And even if you remove them, you can have more show up. You aren’t broken, you’re not malfunctioning, and it’s a very normal thing to have. Try to learn to live with them if you can. But if you can’t, just don’t go using home remedies. See a urologist to have them removed.

    One small white bump on penis, has been there for a while nothing has happened. What could it be?
    It’s just one so I’m not sure if its pearly pearly penile papules unless it can be just one, its about 4mm.

    Also it can’t be an S.T.D. as I have never done that.
    It is on the tip by the way.

    Boyfriend has these small white bumps on his penis! Should I be worried?
    My boyfriend has these small white bumps around the top of his penis and I am worried they are an STD. He swears he has not cheated on me but I am still worried.

    He did some research and showed me pictures of something called pearly papules which it does look like. Is it possible it could be something else?

    • jagannath_kr says:

      Ask him to get his penis tested by a Ganecologist immediately.
      What to have unnecessary doubts.
      I cannot understand what is your meaning of bumps.

    early signs of Pearly Penile Papules?
    I have these tiny random white dot in random places around my penis head. They’re tiny but im just worried because can they be early signs of Pearly Penile Papules? I have maybe 5 in total. Im also un circumcised and 19 years old.

    Do they all start coming out in random places or does it call slowly come out at the same time?

    thanks in advance!!!! im really worried any knowledge would help!

    • Jack says:

      Hey, im 14 and i have them too, i did research it before and it turned out that its nothing wrong, and that normally people have lots of them on, if they have pus in them ro something like that then id be worried but if it is just a little spot then dont worry. Hope i helped : )

    Can you have sex with pearly papules?
    basically can u have sex with white spots on gland

    • Shar says:

      After researching, those could be a normal variant for a male.
      But to be safe, have them checked by a physician.

      Better get tested first.

    Does Pearly Penile Papules show up more or about the same in White men or Persons of Color?
    Does it show more in lighter skin men because they can see it more often, or about the same but not as noticable because of men of color?

    • Capitain R. says:

      I would say white men, because lighter skin tends to show more flaws than darker skin.
      Example, Would you see a fly better on a white piece of paper, or a brown piece?
      Awnser: White.

    Does anyone know any home remedies to cure Pearly Penile Papules?
    I tried toothpaste for two days already. I am already seeing results. First day the dots got bigger because the tooth paste burned them and i saw white stuff coming out of it. Second day they are getting smaller and already going alway. But the problem is the tooth paste really hurts my penis and I am scared it might damage it. Anyone have any ideas?

    • Michael says:

      I’d just carry on using the toothpaste, but put it on every other day instead of everyday.
      Also, keeping the area dry helps, e.g. after a shower.

    what are pearly papules?
    I think i might have pearly papules. i am a teenage girl who has never had sex or anything like that. But i have white painless bumps near my vagina. i did some research and i believe they are pearly papules. is this possible & do they go away?

    • Anonymous says:

      At some stage of their lives, most people develop pearly papules on their genitals and if you don’t know what they are, you may self-diagnose as a STD. These are small, hard, white, pin-head sized bumps on the genitals of both males and females. You cant catch these with sexual contact and they are not life threatening. They may appear on the labia or perineum of a female, on the shaft or head of the penis.They do disappear on their own but there will probably be more.
      LEAVE THEM ALONE. Do not squeeze or break skin to pop them, you will leave yourself vulnerable to other infections. Pearly papules are harmless and are simply part of maturing. Just to be safe, you should consult your family doctor about them or any changes in your genital area.

    Pearly Penile Papules…wtf?
    Okay guys, I really feel like I’ve drawn the short edge of the straw in terms of life. For 18 years I put up with phimosis, and sebaceous prominence. Now I got circumcised and came to terms with my sebaceous prominence (pimple like enlargement of hair follicles on penis), because you know that’s all you can do, come to terms with it.

    So I get circumcised to clear up my phimosis, and lessen my sebaceous prominence in surface area at least and then what happens? Not only do I have to put up with the not too fun experience of circumcision recovery, but now I’m noticing these white bumps on the outer rim of the glans of my penis, which look like a mild case of pearly penile papules. I’m hoping that isn’t the case as I have’nt asked my uro yet. Two week post op checkup so I’m not there yet, but can someone give me any information on this stuff because I’ve heard it can make sex uncomfortable, because if that’s the case I don’t know why I got circumcised ’cause I already knew how to have uncomfortable sex. I don’t exactly want to swap one piece of **** for another. So please will anyone let me know if I really do have these or if it’s a normal part of the recovery process? I’d like to mention that they aren’t that big or noticeable but I am worried by their presence.

    • jkels says:

      If you wash them and they don’t go away then, they are indeed pearly penile pauples. It has nothing to do with getting circumcised.

    tiny white pin sized dots near vaginal opening on labia minora?
    I have recently noticed many tiny white pin sized dots on my labia minora near the vaginal opening, I have no irritation, they’re only noticable when i stretch the skin. I’ve read a lot about pearly papules, and fordyce spots but i cannot seem to find any pictures that match. It kinda looks like salt was sprinkled on my vulva. They could have been there before, I just didn’t notce them. Please do not say that I should see a doctor because I am aware. Also have read some information saying it could be thrush. Whats your opinion?
