I'm 31 years old, Male and have developed spots on the top of my lip which won't go away. When I touch my lips, the spots are hard and the colour of the spots is white. I have never had these spots on my lip and started to get the spots in Febraury 2013. Have been to my local GP who told me to use Daktarin Orel Gel but this did not work. I then tried Nystatin Oral Suspension BP buy again this did not work. My GP does not know what the spots are. Please could somebody help me and advise what these spots are and how get rid of them. Thank you
There are 2 tiny red spots underneath my foreskin... These spots do not itch burn or hurt in any way... They are just there... Just to mention that I had fully protected sex twice in past 1 year with prostitutes... I never had sex in my life before... I am 27 yrs old...So I am bit worried.. Are these spots any cause of concern... These spots do not hurt even if I touch them and I dont feel anything different on touching them... The feeling is same on touching any other area underneath my foreskin .. Just to mention these spots are not any bump or pimple... they are just spots
I have had spots on my penis for years now. I'm 19 and I want them removed. There are like facial spots, however sometimes one spot can grow to be really big (bigger then any spot I get on my face) red and very painful, the huge spots burst sometimes by themselves. But the other spots are like visible facial spots and aren't pleasing to the eye! I'm a virgin and have had no sexual contact with anyone I went to the doctors and they didn't do anything!! I just want them removed, what do you think they are? And what should I do? Thank you!
easy - clean your penis everyday

I am 17 years old and have little white rough spots on.the edge of my penis head i have been to my doctor and hee said it is hygienic spots is this right? When i first got.these spots i wasn't sexually active
You don't believe your doctor?? Ok, if you want a second opinion I suggest you go to your local Sexual Health Clinic. They are attached to most public hospitals (look up on the net where your closest SHC is), they are basically anonymous, free, and yes, they are looking at penises and vaginas all day long so there is no need to be shy.
Hi, Im 17 and am worried about some spots located just under the head of my penis. The spots are small and yellow and have not changed at all in a few years. the spots go all the way around the penis and become larger when the penis is erect. does anybody know what this is, my doctor told be that they are just small teenage spots that cant be gotten rid off but they are embarrassing.
They sound like fordyce's condition,apparently very common in men mainly, although i'm a girl. They are overgrown sebaceous glands (oil glands I think) I have them, and I understand how you are feeling! They are very small, yellowish spot type bumps, I have obsessiveley looked up this condition and heared it is treatable but the treatments are only temp? Its given me OCD and depression, if you are worried go and ask for another dr's opinion, search the condition online to see if they look similar to yours or have tests - I think its the only thing that may settle your mind
hello, i have the same as you can i would like to ask you if you find any information out can you please inform me of it? i am to embbarrised to go my doctors and i don't understand what it colud be?
i keep getting popable spots on my virgina, i went to my doctors and she gave me aqueous cream but the spots have semt to get worse,there just like normal spots where white puss comes out. i do get alot and quite regular. how do i get rid of them?
they're probably little blocked hair follicles - they're on the outside yeah? where you have hair? try using something like a bit of sudocreme - its antibacterial which will help if they're infected. aqueous cream tends to clog pores if you dont have dry skin. other than that try gently exfoliating and making sure that you're wearing cotton underwear and no tight jeans which can cause friction and sweat which makes spots worse.
Hello, i am a 14 year old girl, who has been suffering from spots for 4 years. recently my mum got me this treatment called 'OXY' which works really good, but i seem to get new spots even though it use the face scrub from OXY and the wipes! Why do i keep getting new spots? and how do i get rid of them? i would really appreciate if you could help me out, as they are getting so uncomfortable and embarassing! Thanks :)
I'm afraid hormones cause you to keep getting spots especially as you are only 14, keep using the spot cream though as soon your skin will improve and you will love yourself for keeping in a routine of using spot creams xx
