Angiokeratoma is also known as ‘Angiokeratoma of Fordyce’ as described in medical textbooks/ medical journals. This however should not be mistaken for Fordyce spots of penis which is entirely a different condition. Angiokeratoma of Fordyce is commonly a genital skin disorder presenting itself through benign lesion of capillaries, creating unappealing small lumps which usually appear as coloured blue, red, purple, or darkish coloured soft small bumps.
They are often found on the scrotum in men, and around the female genital area. These skin spots however have a much higher incidence of in men than in women. Although they are symptomless, Angiokeratomas can develop a rough, scaly surface, which can be easily harmed or damaged unintentionally. This can thus cause bleeding on the affected areas in men and women (scrotum and vaginal area) and this can lead to potential infections if they are not cleaned or disinfected properly.
It is a common mistake to suspect Angiokeratomas of Fordyce to be STIs, but they are in no way sexually transmittable and therefore non-contagious and unrelated to one’s personal hygiene. The causes of Angiokeratomas are not very well understood, but many specialists consider them to be due to an increase in blood vessel pressure, an enzyme deficiency, or a rate case of Angiokeratomas called Angiokeratomas of Fabry’s syndrome, which is caused by a genetic inheritance.
Due to their small nature and being low in number, the genital skin bumps of Angiokeratoma of Fordyce often go unnoticed by the sufferer, and one only realises when bleeding symptoms occur. However, there is no need to be alarmed as a simple expert examination performed by a specialist doctor, such as one here at Renew Skin & Health Clinic (18 Guy Street.
