Genital ulcer: The main cause of genital area ulcers is herpes, which also can cause discharge. Yeast infections can cause ulcers, but usually not unless itching/irritation are severe. Syphilis is possible, but rare in the US except in selected high risk populations. Certain non-STD infections also are possible. Get care ASAP, the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. Good luck!

Depends on Bloodflow: If the skin around necrotic area is still healthy only a small portion is necrotic then you can start locally the first week with antibiotic cream to reduce bioburden and keep using local debridement - removedead tissue off the wound site and try to heal the area. Diabetic ulcers respond to oral vitamin k2 - you can read http://vitamink2.Org. I use 10% Phenytoin cream locally http://drbrown.Us.

Infection: You have a respiratory/throat infection. Could be viral and could be bacterial best to see a doctor. Other options to help with symptoms include taing elderberry, gargling with salt water or half and half peroxide and mouthwash (do not drink- just gargle) and a warm cloth around neck to hep with lymph glands. Important to rule out strep throat as that will improve with antibiotics.

Yes, upper: The kidney is the upper end of the urinary tract, so an infection here or pyelonephritis is a form of uti, urinary tract infection. Kidney stones can also present this way. A pyelonephritis may require intravenous antibiotics to cure.
