It is rare that manifest around the glans. There is a sexually transmitted disease and its appearance is related to that activity nor due to poor personal hygiene. The pearly papules  are very sensitive, which can eventually cause discomfort.

These papules persist throughout life, decreasing visibility with age.



Meanwhile, warts caused by human papillomavirus are rough, cauliflower-shaped, dry and uneven skin to other color. And when there is itching, pain or burning, it is automatically associated with condylomata therefore urologist should be consulted if they have questions and if you have had sex without a condom.
