Whitish-yellow bumps commonly seen in the edge of your lips or inside of the cheeks and less often on the penis and scrotum are called Fordyce spots or granules. They are not infectious or sexually transmitted. They are oil glands that appear in unusual body parts. Some skin conditions that can look like Fordyce granules are sebaceous hyperplasia, epidermoid cyst, basal cell carcinoma, and milium cyst, so it advisable to get it checked by a dermatologist. Micro-punch surgery, laser, and topical medications (Tretinoin) are used in its treatment.
