Hi, I have Fordyce Spots, I’ve had them since puberty, and I wanted to ask if it has anything to do with the fact that I have naturally greasy skin?
Do Fordyce Spots appear more often on certain types of skin?
Answer for: Do Fordyce Spots appear more often on certain types of skin?
Fordyce Spots are ectopic, or awkwardly placed, sebaceous glands that accumulate an excessive amount of natural oil due to the fact that they do not possess an outlet. To be more precise, they appear because they do not have a hair follicle through which to eliminate the sebum and, after a period of time, small dome-shaped protrusions are formed on the surface of the skin due to extensive accumulation of sebum. While oily skin does not cause Fordyce Spots to appear, it is usually associated with a greater prominence and density of the existing spots.
While Fordyce Spots do not cause any pain or interfere with the body’s basic functions, they can produce considerable psychological stress and intimacy issues. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, we offer you the possibility to remove these unwanted sebaceous glands in a professional environment that promises nothing less than excellence.
