Fordyce spots are a harmless and asymptomatic skin condition which affects both men and women. It usually manifests in small spots of about 1-5 mm in size, slightly elevated yellowish or white papules that can appear on the glans or shaft of the penis or on the vulva in females. Fordyce spots can also appear on the inside of the cheeks and on the vermilion border of the lips. This condition is completely harmless and it is not sexually transmitted, but can be extremely unaesthetic.
Fordyce spots are nothing more than a type of sebaceous glands without hair follicles and are present in about 85% of adults. They can occur as a solitary lesion or in clusters of about 50 to 100. Although it is a rather frequent and common condition, it may cause anxiety and discomfort. This is why many people try to find a solution against their unaesthetic Fordyce spots.
