Can you treat Fordyce spots when you do my adult circumcision

Dr. Reed,  Can you treat Fordyce spots when you do my adult circumcision?  Carlos

Dear Carlos,
Fordyce spots (also termed Fordyce granules are visible sebaceous glands that are present in most individuals. They appear on the genitals and/or on the face and in the mouth. They appear as small, painless, raised, pale, red or white spots or bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that may appear on the scrotum, shaft of the penis or on the labia, as well as the inner surface (retromolar mucosa) and vermilion border of the lips of the face. They are not associated with any disease or illness, nor are they infectious but rather they represent a natural occurrence on the body. No treatment is therefore required, unless the individual has cosmetic concerns. Persons with this condition sometimes consult a dermatologist because they are worried they may have a sexually transmitted disease  (especially genital warts) or some form of cancer.  (Not so).  They may be thought of as incomplete hair follicles without the hair.

There are many treatments for Fordyce spots on the penis including laser, but we favor electrolysis (pin point low setting cautery). You’re under local anesthesia anyway, so you won’t feel it. We can do a few when you’re having your adult circumcision gratis and if you like the result, you can return for a touch up
