Doctor

A:   Hello,
These are fordyce's spots and not herpes lesions at all.
These don't require any specific treatment and they are not infectious at all. They are self limiting, however you may consider taking Multivitamin tabs twice a day for a month for early recovery.

wishing you good health,
regards
