Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

here you go
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thank you for the picture. You have what are called Fordyce Spots or Pearly Papules. They are not any type of sexually transmitted infection including venereal warts. No treatment is needed and they may go away on their own in time. They are thought to be caused by the blockage of very small oil glands. Should you really be bothered by these, from a cosmetic view, they can be treated by your doctor.

I hope I have relieved your concerns.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

Sorry they are not those at all - its the skin whitening on the top side... Ive spoken to another Dr and he's suggest it could be a fungal infection. Papule's are sacks- this is a skin whitening
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry for that, the white patch may be a fungal infection, but you did not mention any irritation or itching which would go with a fungal infection. The other possibility for the white patch is Pityriasis Versicolor, post infection hypopigmentation, Vitiligo are all possible causes and which one would need to be confirmed by a Dermatologist.

you are saying go to a dermatologist... if it is fungal what would you suggest?
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 7 months ago

If fungal, apply over the counter Tinactin along with 1% Hydrocortisone Cream twice daily for 10-14 days. If still present, then yes you should have it evaluated by a Dermatologist.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
