Hello,

Fordyce spots are a natural part of your anatomy. They’re present at birth, but they aren’t usually noticeable until puberty when hormonal changes enlarge them.

Yes, you may undergo laser therapy. In a few patients, it may leave a scar. Micro punch surgery also one option.

Please consult your dermatologist he will select appropriate treatment to you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu,
