Fordyce Spots – Symptoms & Treatment
A common skin condition called Fordyce spots can appear in both genders, usually on the shaft of the penis, scrotum, vulva, on the vermilion border of the lips or on the eyelids. Also known as Fordyce’s spots, Sebaceous Prominence or Fordyce granules, these bumps can affect up to 95% of the population and can grow to be of about 5 mm. They are small, painless, slightly elevated papules or spots that can be pale red, yellowish, white or skin-coloured, a type of ectopic sebaceous gland.
Another way to describe Fordyce spots on the genitalia in both genders would be blood vessels that have been abnormally dilated and that are covered by thickened skin.Because of their appearance, Fordyce spots can cause distress to most people and seriously affect their social and love life. Even though this is a harmless and painless skin disorder, presenting no symptoms and being far from contagious, infectious or cancerous, Fordyce spots can be removed for cosmetic reasons because they have nothing to do with sexually transmitted diseases either.
