Not contagious...: Fordyce's spots are ectopic sebaceous glands - not related with hair follicles. What you observed and reported in your fiance and you could be coincidental, not contagious. Nonetheless, be evaluated and compared with history and physical exam; that is the surest way to reach the best possible conclusion so to answer your question and concern. Best wish...
