Genital wart or Fordyce spot? Warning: Pictures attached.

Customer Question

I have fordyce spots on my foreskin. However, I had a one night stand 2 months ago and one of the spots became noticeably raised and is pink/red in colour, as opposed to pale/white.


The spot is prominent when my penis is flaccid, whilst fordyce spots are only seen when erect. Is this a genital wart, papule, papilloma, infected fordyce spot or something else entirely?


I have attached pictures.

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,
