Pimples on your glans are pearly penile papules
You have pearly penile papules (PPP). They are benign and common, although some men are bothered by their appearance as the lesions can look like warts (they are not!). If you are bothered by these tiny fleshy bumps at the base of your glans, then I have lots of experience treating these pearly penile papules (PPP) safely and effectively, with no scarring and no pain.

Pearly Penile Papules are not pimples and can be cured!
Hi jonjon-- These are pearly penile papules and are harmless, but cosmetically annoying for many men. They are not an STD, not contagious and occur in 25-30% of all men. I have treated over 900 patients with this condition successfully with the CO2 laser, which is the best treatment. The treatment is painless, and when done properly with the CO2 laser, very effective. Home remedies do not work. I hope this helps you.
Sincerely, Dr. Groff
They're called pearly penile papules...
and you should forget them...nothing to worry about...no treatment necessary or even desirable...just treat them as part of the normal spectrum...and thank goodness they're not a disease...rest easily
Penile Pearly Papules
These are benign and normal, nothing to worry about. Few people know how to treat them but i frequently use laser or dessication with our radiofrequency device. But they will not harm you and should not be of any normal concern, except if they bother you cosmetically. I wish you the best of luck, Dr. Emer.
