Thanks for posting your query.

Could you please post a picture of the rash? That would help me understand what's causing the rash.

Please find attached picture.


Thanks for posting your query.

The small bumps seen on the glans are fordyce's spots. These are ectopic sebaceous glands and are harmless. They need no treatment. You can just leave it alone

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care

Patient replied :

I have had them checked years ago and recently but uhm, can the heat from where im working and be a bit of a cause cause it did this last time I was at work and on break it all just went away and saw my GP he had a look and I he knows about my tests all being negative he said sometimes it just happens and its normal and its nothing bad. So I dont need to be worrying about the rash it pretty much is gone but yer.


Thanks for your reply.

As I mentioned I could just appreciate the bumps which are fordyce's spots. There is no other visible rash.

Fordyce's spots are normal and nothing to worry.


Patient replied :

Hi there just wondering forgotten to show the doctor like a spot on the head its not sore its not sensitive and its been there for a while and I have recently been tested but is it something to worry about?

Thanks for posting your reply.

As far as I could see I could see just fordyce's spots. Please upload a picture of the spot that you are mentioning.
