Home Remedies

    A quick search on the internet brings up many sites with potential home remedies for pearly penile papules. The most popular home remedies that these websites claim to be effective are toothpaste, tea tree oil, and calamine lotion. More radical websites promote do-it-yourself laser surgery and wart removal products (please read here about the dangers of claimed do-it-yourself methods and use of wart removal products on pearly penile papules).

    None of these sites provide any plausible proof that these methods actually work. In fact, all the medical literature clearly shows there is no topical or oral medication or treatment that is effective in treating pearly penile papules (medical source). Still, many guys fall victim to these websites. 

    Why are these sites in existence? These sites exist due to the surge of an affiliate market scheme targeting guys with so called "embarrassing" conditions (please see links here for insight into their methods). These sites hope to prey on guys that feel embarrassed or frustrated at having pearly penile papules and want to "cure" themselves in the privacy of their own home without having to show or tell anyone. 

    Considering the nature of the condition, I understand personally how the idea of a quick home remedy can be very appealing. How easy would it be to go to the bathroom cabinet; or to the local pharmacy, and buy some sort of cream or lotion that would make your pearly penile papules disappear. This scenario would work with many other conditions, why not pearly penile papules?

    Before I got treatment for my pearly penile papules, I was in this mindset for 11 years. I got to a point where I grew frustrated with having pearly penile papules and trying ineffective home remedies after ineffective home remedy added to that frustration.


Here are just some of the ineffective home remedies I tried over the years:

  • Toothpaste
  • Tea Tree oil
  • Calamine Lotion 
  • Castor Oil
  • Mud mask
  • Vitamin A and E
  • Honey
  • Aspirin
  • Oatmeal
  • Talcum powder (to keep area dry)
  • Saturation with water (to keep the area moist)
  • Olive oil (to keep area moisturised)
  • Changing diet to whole foods
  • Becoming a vegetarian for a period
  • Chinese herbs
  • Herbal teas
  • Egg white
  • Aloe Vera
  • Not masturbating
  • Masturbating more 
  • Retina A cream
  • Covering with plastic wrap
  • Keeping my foreskin back
  • Trying to rip them off
  • Trying to Pierce them with a hot needle
  • Baby oil
  • Betadine (iodine - powder & liquid)
  • Eucalyptus oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Trying to cut the tips off (do not even try)
  • Salt
  • Epsom salts
  • Acne wash
  • Taking various combinations of vitamins
  • I was even on Accutane for about 6-8 months

    There were many other strange and imaginative products I tried that I will not name to preserve a little dignity, but, basically, if you can find it around the home I probably tried it at some point during the 11 years.

    There were also some more radical do-it-yourself approaches that I found reference to on internet forums. Some of these extreme home remedies included war removal products (creams and freezing), tediously applying iodine and even reports of someone applying potentially disfiguring chlorine! Again, no plausible proof of their effectiveness were provided (please read here about the dangers of claimed do-it-yourself methods and use of wart removal products on pearly penile papules). While, I wanted my pearly penile papules gone, I was not willing to do anything dangerous or risk permanent disfigurement. In my opinion, any touted home remedy that could do more damage or cause harm is never worth attempting.

    Did any of these claimed home remedies work? Needless to say - nothing I tried at home even came close to being effective at treating pearly penile papules. Eleven years on, I had to finally accept there was just no home remedy proven to be effective in minimising or treating pearly penile papules (aka hirsuties papillaris genitalis). I had to resign myself to what doctors, medical texts, and medical websites had been saying all along - there is just no cream or topical product that you can apply that will make pearly penile papules disappear. Whether prescription or natural product, there was just nothing that worked to cure pearly penile papules topically or orally.

Treatment that works…

    CO2 laser treatment is the only effective method of removal for pearly penile papules. Any website that says otherwise is providing false information. It is as simple as that. CO2 laser treatment has the medical case studies and documented case studies, like my own and that of other members, to support its effectiveness. Purported cures using toothpaste, tea tree oil, calamine lotion, castor oil and any other topical treatment are just false hopes. Please read my pages on Home Remedies and Treatments
