Parts of my penis itches, skin flakes off and bleeds. There is one spot that is visible and circular about the size of 1/4 dime. This all seemed to have started when I started working sitting all day and caused me to sweat a lot in the genital area. I tried using OTC antifungals, gold bond powder and lotion, listerine, vinegar. It just wont go away. What can I do ?

I have a line of raised area on my perineum, I have yeast

I have a line of raised area on my perineum, I have yeast infection that hasn't cleared up just wondering if these raised lines might be a part of the yeast infection? They are not blisters nor do they look like arts so I wasn't sure exactlyJA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?Customer: I am not taking any medications. I went to an urgent care clinic and she said it did not look like warts or herpes and that I was probably healing from sexual intercourse, but the lines feel bumpy to the touchJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No that's it

I have an itch around my panty lines. I have been

I have an itch around my panty lines. I have been experiencing this for two years or longer. Partly in between my thighs but closest to where the panty lines are also. My doctor gave me an anti fungal and anti itch cream. It seemed to work at first. I used it twice daily for about two weeks to 20 days. Once I stopped, the itching came back. Now I am just using essential oils of Tea Tree and Peppermint since after trying the anti itch and anti fungal cream the second time around gave me a rash. So I guess I am allergic to it. The essential oils are helping and I have since stopped wearing underwear with the elastic panty line. Other than that, I do not know what else to do.JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?Customer: Yes I was using a prescription form of Lotrimin basically but it causes me to get redness along with a rash so I had to stop using it. I have seen my gynecologist who is the one who prescribed it as he thought it could be jock itch. But the prescription anti itch and anti fungal cream does not work unfortunately.JA: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?Customer: When I sweat around the panty line area, that makes it worse. Wearing underwear with the elastic panty line will make it worse also.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Nope that is it.

What is the best remedy. My partner has fungus. Little black

What is the best remedy for fungus. My partner has fungus. Little black spots under his skin on tips of toes. He's a construction worker. Wears boots all day. Uses cotton Sox to prevent sweating and takes out insoles every night to dry. Hard to find good boots. Redwings are more leather which is better but still has plastic. And plastic makes him and my son sweat. We've tried tea tree oil. Is there something stronger that will kill it once and for all. He's a clean guy. Showers right when he gets home :)

Ok so I have ongoing issues for about a month. I was on augmentin. I had an appt right after my period ended (the day after) at a urogyn for other issues. Anyways the day after the pelvic exam I had a pelvic ultra sound. Then all hell broke loose. Irritation, swelling, burning, redness. Tried cream. It subsided some but never completely stopped. Had sex, same symptoms. Went swimming in chlorinated pool- irritation! Period started- there were days I couldn't even deal with wearing a tampon. Some days I couldn't get it out. Some days it was ok. Then it kind of calmed down. Yesterday day after my period ended was at the gyno. Told them. They were gentle. Said things looked normal but sent out a culture. Today, swelling, irritation burning. I can't take it. It hurts so bad. And I keep urinating. No burning there just frequent. But that is not new for me and that is another issue being investigated - currently uro r/o IC. Please help. Honestly thing the urination comes when my vagina is irritated

I have a recurring red, shiny rash with small bumps.

I have a recurring red, shiny rash with small bumps. Sometimes they blister, sometimes they don't. They only have light itching when irritated or touched. Only sometimes i see little scabbing. Also, this the fourth time this rash has arised in the last 5 months. After the 2nd occurence I did a full panel test. All results came back negative. After the third occurrence i did a herpes 2 only test just to make sure it wasn't that. Results were negative. IgG blood tests for both.I have no burning while urinating. This reoccurence now is the worst yet. Symtoms go away after a week or so and occur in the same two locations. Both at the base of the shaft. Never been on the shaft or head. Although the rash now has now spread to the bottom of the sack with 4 bumps in a line.My job consists of working outside and in woods all day. My theory is my hands came into contact with an organism outside then I went to pee and contracted the infection. 2 days before the first occurrence i shared an old bathroom towel to dry myself. Not sure if they are related. Ive had unprotected sex one time 14 months ago. I always use a condom.I am 20, 165lbs athletic build and very healthy. Antifungal cream seems to help a little but not enough to cure until it resolves on its own. Antibiotic ointment only inflames the rash.Any info to diagnose this would be very helpful!
