What are Pearly Penile Papules (PPP)?

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP), scientific name 'Hirsuties Coronae Glandis', are flesh-colored or white small dome-shaped bumps or skin tags that form around the rim and underside of the tip of the penis. They commonly appear in rows around the circumference of the penis and look like a string of pearls. The causes for this skin condition are unknown. However, we do know that this skin condition is more common in uncircumcised men in their twenties and thirties.
