Hirsuties Coronae Glandis: Treatment
Since the condition is painless, benign, and does not have any negative side effects, doctors do not usually recommend treatment. However, treatment is available if it is a cause of excessive concern.
The following are the available treatment options, if they must be prescribed:
- Cryotherapy: The lesions are frozen off using liquid nitrogen.
- CO2 laser ablation: This is a laser therapy that works by creating a thermal injury through continuously directing waves of the CO2 at the affected location. This is conducted under the administration of anaesthesia.
- Pulsed dye laser: This type of non-ablative laser treatment also ensures PPP removal with minimal discomfort and pain. The number of laser sessions necessary depends on the severity of the lesions. This laser treatment also does not lead to scarring or infections, along with a low risk of recurrence and adverse effects.
Hirsuties coronae glandis or pearly penile papules are benign, painless, lesions that develop on the corona of the penis. While it may look like an STI, it is not, and does not usually require treatment.
