A 20-year-old female asked:

i have tiny red bumps near my vagina that seem to multiply but they never scab up. they started out looking like ingrown hairs, could it be herpes?

Rash in the privates: Herpes typically is a painful rash that will occur and recur in the same area -typically when you are under stress. There are other possibilities besides herpes (which I don't think this is!)-such as folliculitis (ingrown hairs), allergic dermatitis, fungal rashes, other infections or rare disorders. Best to show this to an ID doctor or your primary who will know how to treat this. Hope this helps

Needs re-eval: Conditions like this are often transient. Doesn't sound like you have proven iron deficiency and in any case you should be back up to normal by now. Sounds like you need to talk to your doc again.

Scrotal pain in the vas deferans--can it be torsion?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Howard Tay

Scrotal pain: This question can't be answered properly on this forum. I recommend that you seek immediate medical attention to ensure that you don't have torsion. Torsion is time-sensitive and can only be diagnosed by physical exam and either a scrotal ultrasound or testicular scan. Seek immediate medical attention is my best advice to you. www.peedoc.com @drhtay.
