11 years experience female
I am a board certified internal medicine physician. My specialty is primary care. I attended medical school at the University of California at Davis and completed my residency at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose. I believe in preventing problems before they start! My practice focuses on a healthy lifestyle and managing medical problems with the minimum number of medications.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 18-year-old female asked:
Maybe pregnant: There is sperm present even before ejaculation happens. If you do not want to be pregnant, a condom should be used before any sexual contact starts.
A 22-year-old female asked:
Skin infection: This could be a kind of skin infection called a yeast infection. This usually starts on warm, moist areas of skin, like under skin folds. It can be treated with creams. I suggest letting a doctor take a look at it first though to verify what kind of rash it might be.
A 20-year-old female asked:
Sunscreen: Sun is the most likely cause. You need an excellent sunscreen with SPF of at least 50. I suggest looking for zinc or titanium oxide in the ingredients for the best results. If you avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every single day, your skin should gradually go back to its natural color.
