I have a doubt...

I have a doubt, I have had fordyce spots around my eyes and aureolas for as long as I can remember, my dermatologyst always said theres nothing to worry about I recently started laser hair removal so as I was seeing the progress in the bikini area, I noticed some little yellow bumps around my anus (which Im having hair removed too) I havent had any sexual contact for over a year. Could this yellow spots be fordyce too or is it possible to have some sort of warts this far away from any sexual experience?

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

I had my eyes checked about 2 months ago, I use glasses, and my doctor said my vision didnt change in the last year, so he even suggested laser surgery since my vision "lost" is pretty stabble

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not really, I went to the dermatologyst about 4 months ago for my allergies check up, everything was fine, she just changed my sunscreen

No way to diagnose without exam.

Yes they can be fordyce.

Cysts.

Warts.

Other.

You need to show them to your doctor.

Warts, however, look warty and have a distinctive appearance, like a tiny cauliflower.

If smooth, more like cysts or fordyce.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

They dont look like cauliflower. They dont seem big at all until I stretch the skin. They don't itch or hurt or bother me at all. If I had not check my laser removal improvement I wouldnt have realized. Arent warts supposed to produce discomfort?

No.

Warts produce no discomfort.

Do not sound like warts.

Exam needed, but should be OK.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
