Hello doctor,

I had HPV warts 25 years ago. A recent bout with Fordyce on lips and a large amount on the scrotum and penile shaft. What should I do?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your case. In my opinion, Fordyce spots are non-infectious lesions and are not sexually transmitted diseases. These are painless spots which occur in the area of sebaceous glands. It has no corelation with your previous HPV infection. Usually, it does not require any treatment. If cosmetically unacceptable, then pulsed dye laser or cautery are options.
