fordyce granules
Jan 13, 2002

Dear doc,

are fordyce spots related to ars. I developed this 2 weeks after exposure. Dermatologist and dentist said this is normal but I am freaking out. I was under major stress worrying that I caught something and I am wondering if stress could somehow cause this imbalance of sebaceous glands on my lips and inner cheeks. Thank you

Response from Dr. Reznik

Fordyce granules are in no way connected to ARS.
