Scientific Rx: I'm sorry you were misled by the foolish business with the lemon, which is worthless. You're a grown man and need to take charge of your acne. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated (try 5% 2x/day) hasn't cleared the pimples in 2 weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. The post-inflammatory pigment fades on its on after several weeks, or try hydroquinone sparingly.

Trauma, infection: Lemon juice isn't a bad concept but need to be smart about it and not over do. If no signs of infection trauma from sex could be the reason and if continues see a doctor soon. I hope all is well with you.

Fordyce Spots: Fordyce spots do not require any treatment, since it will fade on its own. But people prefer to take treatment because of the area in which it occurs is prominent.

Dye laser is also used for treating prominence of sebaceous gland.

Can you get red spots on hands from tiny paper cuts after exposure to acidic substances such as lemon juice?

Can you get red spots on hands from tiny paper cuts after exposure to acidic substances such as lemon juice?

Cannot diagnose: Without seeing these have no way of knowing what they might be. Applying acids to open wounds is certainly likely to induce inflammation and I bet it doesn't feel good. Inflammation will create redness. Good luck and stop putting acids on these. That would be a negative proof if they did not recur.

I have black spots on my lips due to burning of hot water, please suggest me how to remove the spots? I am applying lemon juice but still no use!

Black spot: If the wound has not healed up yet, then wait. Lip tissues tend to regenerate pretty well. If the burn was deep, then scar tissue will form. It's not usually not black in color. You should probably see a doc to make sure there is nothing else going on such as infection. I would not apply lemon juice as it may cause more damage.
