yeah as far as im aware i didnt notice them before ive been with someone for 5 years and havent slept with anyone else

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK Shane.

First off, these aren't herpes or any other STD and they aren't cancer--just to get those worries out of the way

These are small cysts--sometimes called Fordyce spots. Nothing at all serious and they usually disappear on their own in a few days' time.

If they persist, they can be treated either with topical tretinoin cream or with a CO2 laser by a dermatologist
