The truth is that the Pearly penile papule condition has psychological effects especially when it comes to sexual relationship. They simply may not understand that the disease is neither contagious nor sexually transmitted. However there has been speculation on the causes of the condition but they are still unproven, at least medically or scientifically. In actual sense the penile papules are growth bumps that are found on the corona surrounding the penis. The condition is typically a male disease. The growths are rounded in appearance and are either white like in colour or fleshly coloured. Since the bumps are not harmful to a person they may not necessarily need to be treated. But for most affected people there is always embarrassment that is associated with the condition especially during sexual activities.
The widely accepted notion about the predisposed factors in the causes of PPP is being uncircumcised. However, as most of the information about the causes of PPP, this too is yet to be proven medically. The condition is known to affect males from the age of 16-45 and the prevalence decrease with age and a reason most people affected by the condition are in their twenties. The group that is at high risk of developing the condition are usually those that have just turned to puberty. Even though the condition may disappear on its own there is a high chance that it will reappear later on in life. The large number of males affected (approximately half of the group) are usually uncircumcised a reason the condition is linked to the act.
Perhaps the best way to understand the causes of the pearly penile papules is to point out some of the factors that may not lead to the condition. For instance even though the condition is characterised by symptoms similar to those found in many various sexually transmitted diseases, it is not a sexually transmitted disease. And this is one of the reasons that most people are so eager to have them removed either through surgical methods or natural treatment because of the embarrassment associated with the bumps. Secondly it is good to note that hygiene has nothing to do with the causes of PPP. There is a presumption that is made by most people concerning the conditions, which basically assumes that cleanliness or lack of it is the cause of their problems in PPP.
It is also imperative to note that the condition is not limited to sexual preferences or race either. However, they have an appearance that is not appealing to most people and a major cause of the embarrassment. The condition is not malignant, infectious or even contagious plus it tends to decrease with the age. The affected parson is not at any risk medical or otherwise from the condition. The disease can affect any male from the stipulated age and there are various natural remedies that can be used at home with such ingredients as lemon juice or castor oil. The PPP can also be removed through surgical means or through the use of lasers.
