    How to get rid of a white head on the shaft of penis?
    Hi. I've had a big whitehead on the shaft of my penis for months, and it's extremely unattractive, and it won't go away. I was wondering if anyone had similar problems, and has the solution on getting rid of it. Thanks.

      sounds like fordyce's spots. i got concerned when they appeared on my shaft. they appeared on the under-side of my shaft, is that the same for you? anyways it usually occurs after shaving, almost every guy gets them its nothing bad. i usually would just squeeze them like a pimple and pus comes out and then you clean your dick off and vuahlah the spots are basically gone.

  5. QUESTION:
    Why do uncircumcised men have little bumbs on the underside of their shaft?
    I'm curious about uncircumcised men... I tend to notice men who aren't cut have little bumbs on the underside of their shaft and sometimes around the head of the penis. Is it genital warts or hair follicles or and STI? I have no idea.

    • ANSWER:
      They're called Fordyce's spots. They're oil glands (often associated with hair follicles) and they're more noticeable in younger men and men with oily skin.

      They don't have anything to do with being circumcised or not.

      The little bumps (usually in 3 or 4 rows) that sometimes occur around the edge of the head are called hirsuties or pearly papules.

      They're also quite normal, and they are often more prominent in uncircumcised men than circumcised, but can occur in either.

  6. QUESTION:
    What is this small bump on the shaft of my penis?
    I am 20 years old, and currently not sexually active. The bump on my penis is on the right side of the shaft. It is painless, and feels like a grain of rice (and is about the same size of one). It is not attached to the penis, and it is under the skin. I have no other symptoms, and am not completely worried. I'd go to the doctor when the lump either becomes infected, grows, or remains for extended amounts of time. If possible, how can I get rid of this thing?

    • ANSWER:
      Pearly penile papules are raised bumps of somewhat paler color around the base of the glans and are normal.

      Fordyce's spots are small, raised, yellowish-white spots 1–2 mm in diameter that may appear on the penis.

      Sebaceous prominences are raised bumps similar to Fordyce's spots on the shaft of the penis, located at the sebaceous glands and are normal.

      HOWEVERRRR, if it looks like a white head (zit), you should pop it, its just an ingrown hair

  7. QUESTION:
    I have pearly penile papules on my penis shaft. Is ths possible or have i misinterpreted what i have seen?
    I have noticed some bizarre bumps on my shaft. They started when i was younger but they have recently become much more apparent. I am a virgin and therefore do not feel that it is some form of an STD. Is it possible for these PPP's to be on the shaft of the penis or are they only located on the head (the more common place from what i've researched)

    Don't care if there harmless I just want to get rid of them. Preferably with out the cure doing further damage

    • ANSWER:
      Since what you have is a normal variant, you'd end up with a shaft full of scars, instead of the spots, were you to attempt to treat these. The best way to get rid of them, however, is with the use of the CO2 laser, but I"d be surprised if you could convince a laser surgeon to do the procedure.

  13. QUESTION:
    What are the effects of Fordyce Spots?
    I know that they cause multiple small bumps on the shaft but do they also cause red blisters that scab? What are ALL the effects?

    • ANSWER:
      Fordyce's spots[1] are small, painless, raised, pale, red or white spots or bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that may appear on the shaft of the penis or on the labia, as well as the inner surface (retromolar mucosa) and vermilion border of the lips of the face. They are common in men and women of all ages. They are named after an American dermatologist, John Addison Fordyce.[2] On the head of the penis, they are called Tyson's glands,[3] not to be confused with Hirsuties papillaris genitalis.[4]

      The spots are a form of ectopic sebaceous gland: normally, sebaceous glands are only found in association with a hair follicle. They are not known to be associated with any disease or illness and are of cosmetic concern only. They aren't infectious and are a natural occurrence on the body. Men sometimes consult with a dermatologist because they are worried they may have a sexually transmitted disease (especially genital warts) or some form of cancer, but this is not the case.[5] They may equally be worried about the appearance of their penis and what their sexual partner might think of it.[6]
      Although treatment is not necessary, those with the condition can choose to apply tretinoin gel or cream to the affected areas each day. This can reverse the effects of the condition over time and prevent it from getting any worse. To get the best results from Tretinoin one should use it along with alpha hydroxy acid agents which are normally used to treat acne. Jojoba oil, Tocopherol and Argania extract have also been linked to the successful treatment of Fordyce's spots[citation needed].

      Vaporising laser treatments such as CO2 laser[7] or electro desiccation have been used with some success in diminishing the appearance of this condition if they are of cosmetic concern. However, most doctors consider this a normal physiological phenomenon and advise against treatment. Laser treatment can often leave significant scarring.[8]

      Sometimes a doctor will prescribe TCA chemical peels, although as soon as treatment is stopped Fordyce’s Condition will return[citation needed]. Diathermy or liquid nitrogen freezing can also sometimes be used to remove the condition[citation needed].

      Success varies per patient, but some have found relief through Pulse Dye Lasers,[9] a laser normally used to treat sebaceous gland hyperplasia,[10] which is similar to Fordyce spots. Treatment through Pulse Dye Lasers is usually expensive and doesn't scar.[10]

  14. QUESTION:
    What are those little balls in the penis skin called?

I don't have a lot, I have about 7 of them and they don't hurt. I don't think they are herpes. I also have had lately a burning sensation on the inside of my penis usually when I pee.

  17. QUESTION:
    what are these unusual bumps on my penis?
    I just noticed two little bumps on the extra skin on my shaft. They look kinda grey and I haven't had sex with anyone. I masturbate a lot. What are these?

    • ANSWER:
      Can you be more specific about their appearance?

      It could be Fordyce spots or Penile Papules, both of which are normal and harmless, type them into google to get a comparison, you should be able to tell if its the same thing you've got.

      If you've not had sex with anyone the chances are minimal that you have an STI, so don't worry about that. Bear in mind that you can get STIs from oral sex too.

      If you aren't convinced that its normal, then maybe see a doctor.

  18. QUESTION:
    How long should fordyce spots take to dissapear?
    I have small painless white lumps (some of which are bigger than others) in the skin of the shaft of my penis which after doing some reasearch I'm pretty sure are fordyce spots but I could be wrong. I'm just curious as to how long these take to go away if they ever do?

    Thanks, Liam

    • ANSWER:
      They are very common, a lot of ways have been tried to get rid of them, but there is no simple, reliable treatment to remove them. Troublesome bleeding spots can be sealed with a device that uses a small electric current (electrocautery).

  19. QUESTION:
    How do i get rid of fordyce spots, help!?
    I'm 16 and i'm not sure how long I've had them but i'm really self conscious about them.. they are concentrated around the base, but a few are dotted up the shaft. I've been going to lots of parties recently and I've pulled some girls, a few have wanted to go further.. but the spots have murdered my self esteem and I've rejected the offers. I have another party on Saturday night, is there any way i could get rid of them or reduce their appearance by then? i know thats pushing it a bit but any tips will be accepted :( heeelp

    • ANSWER:
      There's really no products over-the-counter that will help. Those spots are stubborn and tough to remove with OTC products.

      You want to request a prescription retinoid cream (you know like Retin-A or Tazorac) because it will effectively exfoliate the skin and purge the spots out! It can take a few weeks depending on the severity of the condition.

      Laser can help but that's more expensive.

      Side opinion:

      Sex at this age is a no no. You're gonna regret it. Well, if you're really horny you'll just think I'm stupid. Doesn't matter. Don't do it. I'm telling ya!

  21. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of pimples on penis?
    Is there anything I can do to get rid of these little pimples on my penis? I know they aren't an STD- sometimes they are caused by hair follicles, but sometimes they are on the shaft where there is no hair. Usually they come and go but it takes months for certain ones to go away. Are there any methods to prevent and get rid of them?

    • ANSWER:
      If they are Fordyces Spots (look it up in Wikipedia, there are some photos, and loads of information), then there isn't much you can do.
      Since they are completely harmless, there's no real need to do anything about them.

  23. QUESTION:
    Can women with fordyce spots spread them to their partner?
    So i have had fordyce spots since i was like 14. I have always had them above my upper lip (their not noticeable usually) and around the inside of my labia. Me and my boyfriend have been together for a very long time. I know he has also never been with another girl, but just this past month i have noticed some small bumps on the shaft and under the foreskin of his penis. I got kind of worried and thought maybe he was cheating and caught an STD. Then the other day i noticed they look and feel like my fordyce spots. Could i have given them to him? or is it possible he has them too? I know they can come at random times. They do come and go. I also know you can get them at any age of your life. I havent said anything because i want to get an idea of what it is before i go accusing, or even making him feel self conscious about them if they are fordyce spots, or something else he cant help having. Should i ask my doctor. Please give me some ideas as to what this could be. I am due for my birth control shot in 3 weeks, so i planned on asking my doctor when i go in. I would just feel more comfortable knowing now.

  27. QUESTION:
    How many men on this forum have Fordyce's spots?
    During one of my human sexuality classes today, we had some slides on Fordyce's spots (harmless, raised bumps on the shaft of the penis and sometimes testicles that don't go away unless you have surgery--though only for aesthetic reasons because they don't hurt you and are common--and even then sometimes come back).

    The statistics on how widespread Fordyce's spots are are shaky. Some people think about 50% of men have them while others say up to 75% might.

    So I wanted to ask the guys in here: who here has Fordyce's spots (Google image search if you need a reference)? Please be honest. This is an anonymous forum and thus there is no reason to lie. I'm just curious how widespread this is.

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone is familiar with pimples, condition that effects the oil glands of the skin. We are not worried if pimple occurs on our nose or cheeks, but what if pimple pops up on penis or testicle? Is that still normal? What to do then? Call a doctor or wait until the pimple subsides?

      What are pimples?

      Pimple is actually a result of a blockage of the skin's pore and it can happen anywhere on the body: face, back, legs, even genitals and elsewhere. Pimples is a common and frequent condition that effects the oil glands of the skin. Oil glands are found in every hair follicle and when they become clogged or inflamed, they can lead to pimples breakouts.

      Are pimples on penis and testicles normal?

      Yes and no. Some types of so-called pimples (bumps,...) are normal and represent very common condition, but in some cases those bumps can be dangerous and demand prompt medical attention.
      Pimples on penis or testicles typically occur in teenage years, but it is also possible men will experience pimples at some time later in their life. Statistics claim that eight out of ten men will experience pimples on penis and/ or testicles at some time in their life. Most of the time penis and testicle pimples go away as person grows, or if they occur later in life, they subside in a matter of week or two. But the fact is that if they don't, it is not wise to sit at home miserable, hoping they will go away.
      If you notice any new lumps or bumps, ask your doctor to check, or go to a genitourinary medicine clinic. I know it can be suffering, not to mention the psychological effect pimples on genitals can cause.

      What spots are normal on penis?

      So called (and looking like) pimples are normal. They are pearly penile papules, small in size (approximately 1-2 mm) and they look just like pimples, but are not pimples. They are actually tinny glands, and you shouldn't pick on them. They occur around the margin of the penis head, and can be seen when foreskin is pulled back. They usually develop in teenage years, but may occur up to the age of 40. They are visible in some men, while in others are less noticeable. Around 10% of men is affected by pearly penile papules.
      After masturbation or sexual intercourse hard swelling might appear near the foreskin, in the shaft of the head of the penis. This swelling is called lymphocele, and is caused by temporary blockage of the lymphatic channels at the area described. This condition is also normal and goes away on its own without any after-effects.

      What spots on penis are not normal?

      Ulcers

      Ulcers. If ulcer develops, you must immediately visit your doctor. Ulcers appear as craters on the skin and represent a full-thickness loss of skin (epidermis). Typically of ulcer is crust, clear liquid (serum) or pus in the crater. Ulcers may occur due to genital herpes, infection, virus or may even be form of skin cancer.

      Papules

      Papules are small lumps (less than than 1 cm), raised above the skin surface. Most penile papules do not have a serious cause (pearly penile papules for example), but some are infectious and may lead to more serious conditions.

      Types of papules:
      Molluscum contagiosum is form of papules, which is very common, but must be supervised by doctor. They are pinkish-white round lumps, each about 1–5 mm in diameter, and are caused by a virus.
      Hair follicles are a normal and are usually found on the underside of penile shaft. They may be visible or only felt as small lumps in the skin. They are recognized by having a hair arising from them.Pearly penile papules (described above as very normal condition)
      Fordyce spots are small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the penis or testicles. They usually affect younger men, and appear in crops. They are painless and not itchy, but are embarrassing because of their appearance.
      Genital warts are very common and are caused by a virus. In case of genital warts seek medical help.

      Plaques

      Plaques are raised, flat-topped lesions, greater than 1cm in diameter. Usually they do not have a serious cause, but some are infectious and others may develop into more serious conditions, such as Erythroplasia of Queyrat, lichen sclerosis and balanitis xerotica obliterans, which may lead to the development of penile cancer
      Erythroplasia of Queyrat appears as a sharply demarcated bright red plaque with a velvety surface. Disease is not infectious, but needs prompt medical attention since it represents an early manifestation of penile cancer. Treatment usually involves excision of the affected area.
      Lichen sclerosis looks like white plaques on the glans, foreskin or shaft of the penis. The severe form of lichen sclerosis is balanitis xerotica obliterans, and it occurs on the opening of the foreskin, which becomes white and firm. Both conditions may lead to penile cancer, but rarely. Medical care is necessary.

      What spots are normal on testicles?

      Chicken-skin: it is normal that the skin on testicles looks similar to the skin of plucked chicken.
      Sebaceous cysts: they are swollen, blocked grease glands that look like yellowish pimples. They occur in dozens or more. If they become infected, they can be treated.
      Angiokeratoma of Fordyce: tiny, bright-red blood-blisters; can be itchy, but are otherwise harmless.

      What spots are not normal on testicles?

      Genital warts
      Varicoceles, which are caused by the swelling of veins; are more noticeable when standing. Approximately 15% men have this condition, and usually occurs on left side.
      Lump(s) in the testicles, which usually isn't visible, but can be felt through the skin. In most cases these lumps are armless cysts, but they may develop into testis cancer. Consult your doctor if you find a lump in your testicle.

      In conclusion

      Men are understandably concerned when they notice spots on the penis. So, what is best to do in this case?
      First of all- do not make the situation worse! For that reason do not try to squeeze anything! Squeezing might cause an additional inflammation, which can spread the bacteria that caused pimple, which leads to spreading pimples and possible scarring. Clean your skin several times daily with pH neutral soap, but do not exaggerate, since this could lead to other problems. If you suffer from swelling, apply ice pack, which should reduce swelling, redness and pain.
      However, if you feel your condition isn't just pimples, it is highly recommended to see doctor or dermatologist as soon as possible.

    i've had them for sometime now and i do masturbate often. I see a lot pf people say its not. If so does masturbating spread them because i am starting to get a lot.... and do you know any good home remedies that may reduce them?

    • ANSWER:
      Normal. Don't worry about it.

      Fordyce's spots[1] are small, painless, raised, pale, red or white spots or bumps 1 to 3 mm in diameter that may appear on the scrotum, shaft of the penis or on the labia, as well as the inner surface (retromolar mucosa) and vermilion border of the lips of the face. They are common in men and women of all ages. They are named after an American dermatologist, John Addison Fordyce.[2] On the head of the penis, they are called Tyson's glands,[3] not to be confused with Hirsuties papillaris genitalis.[4]

      The spots are a form of ectopic sebaceous gland: normally, sebaceous glands are only found in association with a hair follicle. They are not known to be associated with any disease or illness and are of cosmetic concern only. They aren't infectious and are a natural occurrence on the body. Men sometimes consult with a dermatologist because they are worried they may have a sexually transmitted disease (especially genital warts) or some form of cancer, but this is not the case

  37. QUESTION:
    How to Get Rid of Fordyce Spots, methods you've "witnessed" work with your own 2 eyes?
    Women will pretend sometimes they don't care about little bumps on the shaft of a mans penis where if they are squeezed some sexy white pussy stuff comes out, but they really do care, they really do think it's nasty, let's be honest.

    No woman says "Oh baby, lets strip and get the squeeze on those sexy puss bubbles you got."

    So that being said, what are the different methods you guys have used to removed these, and actually witnessed them disappear, i should add, without scarring?

    Many methods are provided, but less methods actually have worked and even less methods have actually worked with no scarring whatsoever.

    One of the last things a man wants is scar tissue on a body organ that relies on expanding tissue because scar tissue is the last tissue you'll ever see expand.

    Here's a few examples of a few methods of removal that people have claimed to actually witness Good results:

    micropunch surgery
    creams

    that's about all i can find that i've seen people support without any negative side effects. The creams, whatever creams they used, dried the skin out and caused it to be red and painful, but said later that the red dried out painful skin was only temporary and the real results was the size of the fordyce spots being smaller. --

    "I got jock itch recently and was treating it with an antifungal. It actually removed all of the ones on my scrotum after a week of use. The shaft still has a ring of them but everywhere else they are gone (not to say they wont return with the end of the treatment). Attempting to apply the same treatment higher up has been difficult due to it rubbing off while working (I stand all day)."

  39. QUESTION:
    What are these bumps on my crotch?
    I've had these bumps on the shaft of my penis and on my scrotum for about a month and a half now, and when I went to the doctor to see what they were, he didn't know. They're about the size of a pen head, and they are placed close together on the shaft of my penis and and my scrotum. I've never had sex so it couldn't be an std. They're freaking me out D: please help
    They are flesh colored.

    • ANSWER:
      They are perfectly normal and 90% of guys have them to some degree. They are called Fordyce's Spots and you have almost certainly had them since you were born, but they only become noticeable when you reach puberty and the hair follicles in your pubic region start to mature.
      I am very surprised that your doctor didn't diagnose this correctly for you.
      They are totally harmless and do not require any treatment. They sometimes just disperse for no apparent reason. Mine did. Do a Google Search for more information and lots of photos.

  44. QUESTION:
    would this be considered herpes or fordyce spots?
    A couple months ago I started to notice these little bumps on my penile shaft. I'd say they are pink/white in color. Very little in size. I've never had any pain or irratation with them. I thought for a while they were just fordyce spots but now i'm a little worried after considering they might be herpes. They have never blistered or broken open.

  47. QUESTION:
    When you start pubic hair does it look like pimple then starts hair?
    Yeah I started puberty and my penis has like pimples but they have like little hairs (cleary white) growing out? Is it pubic hair?

    • ANSWER:
      You don't need to go to the doctor. Some us do have hair that goes a little up the shaft, but not too far. Yes, hair follicles are more noticeable in the genital region because the skin is thinner. It is likely that what you're seeing is just pubic hair starting to grow.

      However, if it's not pubic hairs, it is probably Fordyce spots. They can sometimes look like hair follicles. This condition is completely normal and a lot of us have it. It doesn't hurt you or cause you problems in any way. Check out this link and I think it'll make you more comfortable with this.

    Theres bumps on my penis that look like zits covering the bottom of the shaft and the whole bottom side?
    I reallly really want them to go away, any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Fordyce spots.
      they are perfectly normal, i have the same one.
      When i was 9 i was freaking out and thought i caught an std from something (cause i was 9 i did not make the connection that i needed to have sex to catch an STD)
      But don't worry.
      They don't go away, you can get them removed by surgery, but they are not life threatening and they don't really do anything.
      They are just there.
      Some have them, some don't
