Fordyce Spots also known as Pearly penile papules – These are benign spots and has been named after John Addison Fordyce, an American dermatologist. They are small ectopic sebaceous glands, which are small less than 3mm in size. These can occur on the penile shaft and scrotum in men. It doesn’t spare the women, it can be seen on the labia. In both men and women we can see it around the mouth on the borders of the lips.
Why is it of concern?
Can be bothersome cosmetically and instils a lot of anxiety about various wider psychological fears, which can result in relationship problems. It is NOT a sexually transmitted condition.
Can it be treated?
You can leave these alone but if it’s bothering you help is available.
Treatments can be offered and have have good results with CO2 Laser or Plasma surgical, which produces low power electrical pulses to sublimate the tissue.
How does the treatment work and can it recur?
It works by stopping the production of sebum, which results in the spots shrinking in size and becoming invisible. After the treatment small scans can be noticed which fall off naturally. The results can be noticeable in approximately 4 weeks. The spots can recur in due course of time in some and could be retreated.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment requires a local anaesthetic cream and then the treatment is done, which would depend on how many spots to be treated, average treatment time is 25 to 30 minutes.
