Natural Fordyce Spots Treatment
Fordyce spots, or Fordyce granules are visible glands that appear on the genitals and sometimes the mouth in most people. They are not associated with any disease or illness, they are not contagious, but natural; they appear as small, white or red dots, or bumps, and range from 1 to 3mm in diameter. The glands responsible are the sebaceous skin glands that are responsible for secreting a natural substance to lubricate and waterproof our skin. Fordyce spots on lips can have a white or yellowish color, and take on a rice like appearance.
Sebaceous glands usually only appear in hair covered areas, and Fordyce spots are more common in people with oilier skin types and most commonly appear on the lower gums. Their presence is completely safe and requires no treatment, and they are considered a cosmetic issue more than a medical condition.
