Customer Question
I have self DXed...

I have self DXed with fordyce spots and PPP but now I'm having white spots around the frenulum of my penis. I'm very concerned. I want to know what it most likely is and what I can do to remove them (hopefully on my own). I've even thought of burning these spots off myself!

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the skin issue better or worse?

I noticed that after a long day of work the spots become more pronounced and whiter

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

No, I'm healthy as a bull

Any history of sexual contact before the appearance of these spots around the frenulum ?

Sexual contact with known person or unknown person ( who may have had warts ) ?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Both I guess.
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 6 months ago

The area around the frenulum look like warts ( caused by the human papilloma virus )

This needs to be treated with local application of cryofreeze at the doctors clinic This would help in removing the growths and spots and make them look better.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Wartner-Cryogenic-Wart-Removal-System-Original-12-applications-1-18-oz-Pack-of-6/45107787

This cryogenic wart removal system from walmart store can be tried.

For the dots in the shaft of the penis : Do not worry . Those are nothing but follicular spots ( fordyce spots) You can make them look better by application of retinol based serum on the area daily at night for 2 months

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

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.
