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.
