I have many flesh colored spots on my armpits and the a few of the same spots around my nipples and pubic area. I showed my NP my armpits and after researching she diagnosed me with Fox Fordyce. I researched it a little online and realized that the spots around my nipples and pubic area confirm her diagnosis. What type of treatment do you suggest? What are some things that I can do myself at home to help deminish this? For instance, I use tretinoin cream on my face already and she suggested that I could try that. Should I wash my armpits and then apply the cream at night to wash off my deoderant? Also, is deoderant bad for the disease or is shaving bad for it as well?
