Not herpes or genital warts there

Those are Fordyce spots--small cysts that have no particular trigger for them

You can try over the counter tea tree oil but if that doesn't clear them they can easily be removed with a cold CO2 laser by a dermatologist

Please let me know if you need any more information

Why do they keep growing

Fordyce spots tend to do that but once they're removed they don't come back

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I was warm water and it works when they flare up sometimes

That can certainly help

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.
