Fordyce spots, also called granules, are unaesthetic, harmless, benign, painless, small, pale, red or white spots or bumps of 1-3 mm in diameter that appear in both men and women and tend to go away sometimes without any treatment. But that isn’t one hundred percent sure and after you put up with this skin disorder that can cause much damage to your love life, you get sick and tired of waiting and you decide to try anything you think will help diminish them.
Fordyce spots are asymptomatic, large, sebaceous glands that can cause irritations if they are not treated properly. Their appearance tends to increase as we age, so the elders are the ones most likely to face this skin disorder. There are several effective cosmetic procedures performed at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic for Fordyce spots removal, but if do not want to undergo any of them you can try natural remedies.
You can start by paying more attention to what you eat and seriously consider including garlic in your diet because it kills all the bacteria from your constitution. Consuming foods that are high in antioxidants can naturally cleanse your body and the vitamins A, B, C, D and E are of very much help.
There are other useful tips that will definitely help you feel better in your skin. Hygiene is very, if not, the most important aspect that must have all our attention because we all know how many diseases can appear if we don’t respect the hygiene rules. Because the genital area is very sensitive, you should wear larger underwear to avoid sweating. It is imperative to shower after practicing at the gym or any other kind of workout and you should use anti-bacterial soap to unclog the oil that is trapped inside the pores. If you will do all these things from now on there are high chances to reduce your Fordyce spots.
You could also try hormone therapy as it is known that Fordyce spots appear because of various hormonal changes. If you do so you will see an improvement in what concerns your energy levels, weight and mood. You can also apply creams on the affected areas to help you get rid of your Fordyce spots.
Tretinoin cream used along with Alpha Hydroxy Acid will speed up the healing process or you could even try trichloroacetic acid chemical peeling on the affected skin, where the Fordyce spots are located. In case the spots are located on the lips, you will need moisturizing products. Exfoliating scrubs or creams may help you remove the dirt that is trapped on your skin and they could also clean the pores that are filled with sebum, or just use anti-sebum products that will make your Fordyce spots less noticeable.
