dO PEARLY PENILE PAPULES AFFECT TRANSMISSION OF HIV?
| Response from Mr. Kull
Pearly penile papules are small, white, raised bumps or "dots" that appear around the rim of the head of the penis, usually in uncircumcised men. These bumps are often confused with the genital warts associated with HPV infection, but they have nothing to do with HPV nor are they sexually transmitted. They are benign growths that probably have no correlation to a person's susceptibility to HIV infection.
