I have Fordyce Spots on my forskin, and i've posted on here before about my dismay about these and it's affected me in my confidence. So today i seeked if there was any chances of removal. Doing so i came across this on Malehealth.co.uk. read on...
I am an uncircumsized 19 year old male, and I have many tiny white spots all over my foreskin, they seem to be underneath the surface of the skin. They don't cause any pain or discomfort to me, nor do they discharge in any way. I've read some of the articles here, and I think I have "Fordyce spots." When I have an erection, the skin stretches and these spots stand out and give my foreskin a very rough feel. My questions are: Would the friction of these hard spots cause discomfort to a female during intercourse? Will each spot grow hair (some seem to be doing so)? And because I have many, will they go away or is there a way to get them treated?
A. Now this is just the kind of question I really love to answer. Not only do you not have a problem, your partner is on the receiving end of an advantage. The bumps you refer to are nothing more than hair/sweat follicles which sit inside the thin skin of the penile shaft. As the penis becomes erect these follicles stand out more prominently. I suspect this is part of the cunning plot of nature as the vagina will be more stimulated by these bumps. If you need confirmation take a look at the dildos on sale in sex shops. For goodness sake, if only for the sake of your partner at least, do not even consider getting rid of these perfectly normal sexy bumps you lucky, lucky man.--
Is this true or is the doctor just trying to calm the guy? And would like to hear from females if this is true?
Hey guys just would like some feedback on this...
maybe the "you lucky man" part but i think the doc is right. if it were serious he would tell u
i didnt post that question btw..
I've just searched on the net for some dildo's and i found none to what he said.
Actaully the bumps on the shaft are sebaceous glands and hair follicles. Fordyce spots are tiny bumps on the inner forskin.
Most guys have these bumps on their shaft.
spd... yhou beat me too it.. I was going to say tghe following... I hope that this helps....
Fordyce spots: small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the glans, shaft or scrotum and usually affect younger men. They may occur as a solitary lesion, but frequently appear in crops of 50 to 100. They are painless and not itchy, but may cause embarrassment because of their appearance, or a fear that they might be sexually transmitted. They are abnormally dilated blood vessels, covered by thickened skin. They may bleed if injured or even during intercourse. They are not infectious and their cause is unknown. Although a number of approaches have been tried, 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).
There are two types of spots associated with the name Fordyce. Do you have a reference for the info you posted? I've heard of that condition as Fordyces kera-something. Those are somthing like small blood blisters under the skin of the scrotum and are often associated with guys who have a varicocele due to poor blood flow.
The Fordyce spots I'm referring to are tiny sebaceous glands that are white or cream colored and are located on the inner forskin. There is a picture of them in the Male Anatomy thread.
Whoever put together the info for that website seems to have screwed up. It seems like they merged the two conditions I mentioned into one.
That's the internet for you!
Believe or not believe... That is the question...lol
