I am 15, 16 next month. I have had little fordyce spots or what it seems to be. I have had them for about 2 years now and they seem to not go at all. all of them are area-d on the shaft and testicle area. they have spread up the shaft of my penis over years. However recently I have developed a red spot in the past month or so and is very noticeable. I am worried as it is red and I am really embarrassed about it. Is there anything i can do to get rid of it or is it normal because all my other spots i cant really notice, but this spot is red and when looking at my penis it is hard, the other spots are soft. Im really worried, any help?
I think I have fordyce spots but recently found a hard noticable spot which is a lump and hard?

If you haven't already been to see a physician about your problem, read on.
I am 24 and have had fordyce spots for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until a few months ago that I first experienced the problem you are having.
One day I noticed I had a red spot on my penis, and an unusual hard lump underneath it (about the size of half a grain of rice). What was even more unusual was that this lump has a sharp end on it, so it was quite painful if I rolled it between my fingers. I decided to squeeze the red spot, which produced a small amount of pus (I was quite suprised as this was a first for me) I then decided I would try and squeeze the hard lump out the same way. Because the lump had a sharp end (it sounds weird, I know) I angled that toward the hole where the pus came out, and squeezed.
It took a while to get there, but what this hard lump turned out to be was a very solidified bit of pus, I'm assuming the product of an ingrown hair.
So don't fret! Nothing to be afraid of!
Being it is on the skin I would set up a dermatology appointment asap/ they can look at it to make sure it's nothing serious and then go from there..good luck and keep us posted we do care about people and there health and well being on this site... GOD BLESS/ good luck..
Is it painful? I'm thinking it could be a little infection. Since its so different, I'd see my dr if I were you.
