Question 2 doc
Hi Doc

I'm a 25 yr old male. I have many small whitehead pimples on my penis. I've had them since puberty and they still havn't gone away. Are they anything to worry about? What causes them? Lastly, is there anything I can use to get them to go away??? Thanks

Pearly penile papules, a condition which causes pin-headsized outgrowths arranged neatly in rows on the base of the head of the penis may be mistaken for genital warts. They are harmless and do not require treatment.
