Suggest treatment for fordyce spots

Hi, I am wondering if there is any way I can get rid of my Fordyce spots with any normal products? I don't have access to items or special medicines other people recommended. Would Calimine Lotion Help? Please reply, I am desperate! Email: YYYY@YYYY

Can understand your concern..

As per your complain Fordyce spots are sebaceous glands which are visible and elevated.

They are mostly harmless and their removal should be done only in case of cosmetic concern..

Calamine lotion is not seen to help in resolving fordyce spots..

Tretinoin gel or cream can help in resolving the fordyce spots.

Taking vitamins A,C,D,E,K can help in reducing the visibility of these spots.

Few simple surgical and laser treatments like Carbon dioxide vaporizing laser and liquid nitrogen freezing known as cryosurgery can help..

Hope your query is solved..

Thanks and regards..
