Yes, but ...: Since Fordyce spots are harmless, one has to consider medical necessity from both patient's and provider's perspectives even though professional possibility does exist. For Fordyce spots, skilful laser or electrocautery can rid of them but with scars in exchange. So, do why you want to get rid of such almost invisible spots in exchange of scars?
