    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!

    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

    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

    Hi, few weeks ago I got some brown spots/ freckles on both of my hands. They came out over one night!!! Before that, I was sunbathing in my garden, and also I went for a sun bed... Some of them brown spots are flat, and some are a bit bubbly with a tiny dot/scab on the top.They look like AGE SPOTS, but Im only 28 years old, bit too young to get age spots... I went to see a GP, and she said its from a bacterial infection. Got a cream perscribed, but spots didnt go away at all!!! So I went again to another GP, and she said that my brown spots came from a reaction to the sun and citric friuts..is this possible??? Has any1 ever developed skin pigmentation from touching lemons and oranges, and then exposing their hands to the sun??? Please help!! Dont know what to do to make them brown spots go away!! The doc said it'll disappear itself within 8 months ;(( what if not..???

    Any White Spots you see on your penis should be checked by your doctor as some kind of spots can be very harmful. The majority of Harmful spots on the penis appear to be flesh coloured and purple and cause irratation. Any white spots that look like goosebumps are called Forcide Spots. These spots are not like the spots you get on your face and you shouldn't try to pop them. They are perfectly normal but will never go away as they are swollen glands. If you try to pop them you can end up making them bigger and far more noticable. However most cases become less visable over time if left alone. Forcide spots are very common and nearly 50% of men have them. As a teenager you can become sexually insecure of them but assure your sexual partner of what they. You'll find that most girls/guys know about them or have them thereselves.

    i saw a show a couple of weeks ago and it had the acne products called salcura antiac. i tried to get it from chemists but one was sold out and the other didn't have it so i just googled it and it came up from loads of places. it's 9.99 but seems to last ages as it's mist that you spray on. i had small ones too on the sides of my face and forehead and they are all gone now so happy i was watching or i would not have know bout the product...good luck!!

    Sudocrem doesn't always help. I strongly reccomend facial masks, steam, cleansing your makeup brushes and controlling your diet. Also, there are videos by BubzBeauty on youtube about acne and treatments so check it out, and try some concealer if your finding socialising awkward. NEVER get stressed either, as this also causes outbreaks. Good Luck!

    I think i first got spots because of having a fringe but i grew my hair back and it still didnt go away.My skin is allways oily and spots never seem to go away. I've had spots since i was 7 and i am starting to get really paranoid over them.I'm 13 now and im trying a cream from the doctor.If the spots go away i will still be left with scars under.What can i do?

    Hi, I am 13. I have had spots since I have been about 11. Since I have got older I have been getting a lot more spots and they are starting to get really sore. I have then around my nose and they are starting to appear on my cheecks. I have lots of spots on my forehead and I have some on my chin. I find that the once on my chin are the worst, even though I don't have many on my chin they are the most visable. Some days my spots can be really red and very ichy but others days I can only feel them. I have used lots of differnet creams and gels but they all seemed to make them worst! I have followed the directions and used them for about 2 months. After I have used them for about 2 months my spots didn't appear to be any better so I gave in. I used to use day cream but I stopped using it because it made my face really oil and my spots were getting worst. I am starting to feel the odd one out because my friends don't have spots and if they do they are not as bad as mine! Have you got any tips for me to get rid of my spots?

    It's jack again I've looked at some images on google and they seem to be very much like the spots on my penis and balls. I was watching your show when I noticed scabies or something like that and that looks exactly the same as 'fordyce spots'. How can I tell which one I have got? The 'fordyce spots' are very itchy and I saw some pubic hair coming out of some. Doe I need treatment of any sort to get rid of these spots?

    If you have scabies, then this is completely different. Scabies are little bugs that get under your skin, usually in places that are warmer and wetter, such us under the waistband of your underwear and in your crotch area. You need to see a "skin doctor," someone who specializes in dermatology. You will need to soak in hot sulphur baths daily, change all your bedding and clothing every day, and either boil all of your clothing and bedding or iron every article of clothing and bedding your touch, including socks and underwear. You will need to keep this up for 30 days.

    Hi, don't be popping your spots even if they're big or in the way. That's the worst way of dealing with spots. If you pop them you leave a hole in which other bacteria can grow & this increases more spots also it leads to scarring. Simply leave the spots alone & wash your face twice a day with "simple" face wash also use face toners such as "witch hazel" or "Clinique" & for spots to go down just use Vaseline. :)

    I was wondering does anyone else get spots anywhere else?? I am 28 and seemed to have spots on my inner thighs, bottom and tops of my legs! I have tried creams, been to the doctors but they dont seem to be helpful! Even tried exfolianting. I never generally get spots on my face. But i am very self concious and i get worried my boyfriend is put off by them when i am naked. I wrap up and cover my self during day light hours. Has anyone got some advise on how to remove these revouting spots from my body.

    I think the spots are called fordyce spots or something like that! Basically i'm not 100% sure coz if you had sex it could be an Sti but if you haven't and they are fordyce spots they are totally normal and you should live life like anyone else. If your not sure what they are google image "fordyce spots" and see the results! Don't be ashamed, many young boys have these! Go to the docters to be sure!

    Im 25 and have been suffering from spots since i was a teen. I have tried various face washes, masks, creams and even tablets from the doctor but still have spots which normally appear with a whitehead. I would say the amount of spots have reduced since 16-18 but my confidence is shattered due to the breakouts. I want to know of anything that i can use to get rid of these spots appearing. I also have some small scaring where i have previously squeezed the odd spot if you have any treatment for this? Is there anything my doctor can do? e.g referral? PLEASE HELP
