Fordyce Spots

Fordyce Spots

Fordyce spots are small, slightly raised papules or spots that can appear on the genitals and face. They are a type of sebaceous gland without any hair follicles.

Fordyce spots usually measure between one and five millimeters. They are typically white, yellow, or flesh-toned in color, although ones located on the genitals often have a redder hue. They are harmless and not contagious, so they don’t typically require treatment. They are also very common, with between 70 and 95 percent of adults presenting with them.

They are also sometimes called Fordyce granules or ectopic sebaceous glands.
