    Hi, Im new to the forum. I came across it while doing some research.

    I am not circumsized and I heard that you could increase sexual dexterity by exposing the head of your penis more often to get used to the sensation and friction. Naturally, I tried it. I went most of the day doing it and at first it was a bit uncomfortable but needless to say it felt alright at times. After a while, I guess I got used to the sensation and didn't feel much from there on out.

    A few days later I noticed some pain and checked it out. On the ridge of my penis ( the corona) I noticed it was more red, and that there were bumps as if the nerve endings were inflamed or swollen from all the friction and sensation. Didn't think much of it and figured it would go away with time. Fast forward 6 months later and I still have them.. when doing research I found that they look very similar to papillae coronis. In fact, I am very confident that is what it is. Now they seem to be more sensitive than the rest of the corona... not sure whether to take that as good or bad news. Sometimes, when masturbating there is minute pain.

    I'm curious about two things, did they root from my little experiment deal? Because I hear they come about naturally with other men. Secondly, is there anything that I can do to minimize their appearance? Hydro-cortizone cream, if thats safe to use on the penis?

    I'm a virgin so I know its not a sexually transmitted disease. if you're curious, I did it cause...well... no one wants to be the premature guy in "that girls" story right?

    Any suggestions?

    Generally, this is a condition associated with being UNCIRCUMCISED... so , chances are you always had them, you just never noticed them before.

    Circumcision generally causes them to go away as the skin of the glans undergoes keratinisation... a slight thickening in response to exposure of the glans.

    Thanks for the response.

    Is there anything I can do to lessen the size or appearance of them via any sort of cream? I read on another site ( forget where) that hydro cortizone cream can help a bit..

    Can anyone verify this?

    Bigvuh Gyna,

    Looks like Papillae Coronis is also known as Pearly Penile Papules which has been discussed in some other threads.

    They're regarded as benign and many guys don't like having them.

    Published research indicates they are somewhat more prevalent on intact penises but I've seen NO published material that indicates that circumcision diminishes existing ones in any way.

    One guy got rid of them via laser treatments after trying other things. He mentions that in one of the threads below.

    The fact that you haven't seen the info is immaterial.


    What is observed is that Intact men frequently have them, Circumcised men almost never do.
    There is no genetic, nor infectious explanation.
    Ergo, BEING circumcised leads to their disappearance.

    They literally get RUBBED away and can not grow back.

    I'm circumcised and I've always had them however that is likely because my remaining foreskin always at least bunched-up behind the corona to protect them.

    There is nothing wrong with them and they act like a french tickler so you may not want to get rid of them as they give extra feeling.

    The cheap way to get rid of them is to use smoker's toothpaste. Just rub some on the affected area, ignore the burning, and wash it off after 5 minutes. They should disappear with repeated treatment.

    Again, NOT an argument, and certainly not evidence. The condition appears overwhelmingly in uncircumcised men.

    EXPLAIN that....

    I am not suggesting the guy get circumcised.... Just offering the explanation that I am aware of for WHY some guys have it and others do not.

    We all know you are a Foreskin Nazi... but, really, you need to start basing conclusions on reason, and not imagining some madman mohel behind every statement of fact.

    Phil,

    I didn't dispute that it occurs more often in intact men and I mentioned that in my earlier post. What I am disputing is:
    You're saying or implying circumcision "leads to their disappearance". Unless you can present a medical document that backs your assertion, I'm calling that ...

    Bullshit!!!

    Pearly Penile Papules basically exist in all men.

    It is just that with uncircumcised males, they tend to become much more prominent, whiel on circumcised males that are much less prominent, often to a point where you don't see traces of them.

    After getting circumcised, mine definitely got way smaller. There are there, but you need to look for them to see them.
