Ask Your Own Dermatology Question

How long have you had those and have you tried anything to treat this?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
about a week or so and nothing yet no pain at all or anything

Not herpes or genital warts or any kind of STD there

Those are Fordyce spots--little benign cysts from blocked oil glands

Nothing contagious and usually they go away on their own but you can use over the counter tea tree oil twice a day for a week to treat them

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
