Is sebaceous gland dangerous for men?  Is it contagious ? & how can you get rid of it?

No, no, can't: Sebaceous glands aren't dangerous for either men or women (yes, you have them, too). They definitely aren't contagious. Everyone has these oil glands everywhere. Therefore you can't get rid of them. Sometimes they'll plug up & enlarge, even get infected. In that case, your doc can lance them to allow stuff (pus) to drain out. Warm compresses sometimes are enough to cause 'em to open & drain on own. ...Read more

Your acne is probably gone and you're looking fantastic. Don't even THINK of depriving yourself and your sports buddies of the joy of physical fitness.
