Fordyce angiokeratoma


In some cases, nodular angiokeratomas may produce necrotic tissue and valleys that may harbor fungal, bacterial, and viral infections. Infections can include staphylococci. If the injury becomes painful, begins to drain fluids or pus, or begins to smell, consult a physician. In these cases, a physician may recommend extraction and grafting.


Black spots on the testicles

Hi, I’m wondering why I have black / dark spots that are small and some are created on my testicles? They are like in line with the veins that surround the testicles, they do not hurt or itch, but are annoying to see there, it almost looks like they are blood clots or something wrong with the veins ??

I think I found the problem.
His problem may be Fordyce’s angiokeratoma, which is a benign disease, and is due to a collection of very small veins, in which case a single lesion may bleed. It is important that you see a urologist or dermatologist for a thorough evaluation.
