I will break this post into two as there are a lot of options available some of which work and some that don't.
As I have mentioned previously, Fordyce Spots are as a result of oil producing glands.
Salicylic Acid Washes or Creams - I really recommend this
A lot of acne is treated using face washes etc. which contain Salicylic Acid as a key ingredient.
I have used acne face washes such as Clean and Clear in the shower followed by using a facial cleanser again by Clean and Clear applied using a cotton pad. This routine needs to be repeated daily!
The Salicyclic Acid helps with the removal of layers of dead skin cells which can reduce the appearance of Fordyce Spots.
I personally have had good results with this combined with dietary changes.
The only caveat is that you need to be strict, consistent and structured in your approach otherwise it may not be effective.
In my next post I will cover some of the other Home Remedies available for the treatment of Fordyce Spots! Until then :)
