No treatment needed: Fordyce spots are prominent sebaceous glands which may occur on the genitalia or in other places in the skin. No treatment is necessary as they are benign. Some physicians treat these with laser or cryotherapy, both of which may leave scaring. Some physicians suggest vitamins or over-the-counter acne creams. Mostly, they should be left alone.
