Get to a Urologist: Those problems could represent impingement of a nerve or richly-innervated structure in the groin. A urologist would be a good start to rule out bad things. While you're waiting for the appointment, you could read online how to do a male self-examination to exclude any anatomical abnormalities. Good luck, and feel better soon!

No direct relation: Symptoms of menopause are caused but hormonal changes in the female body. Burning of the feet and genitalia are probable neuropathic in nature and should be evaluate by doctor. There is no direct relationship between the two. The feet and the crotch are enervated by the lower sacral nerves.

I have burning sensation in urinal/genital area. My diab. Is under control, had urinal test for bacteria-all good, I was at GYN-all good and PAPA test too

GU discomfort: Sorry to hear about these symptoms. I would want to know more -such as the timing/onset of symptoms. Diabetes can cause longer term problems such as neuropathies, or 'nerve damage' but it sounds like you're doing your best to control it. I would be worried if this is of a sudden onset of such as with shingles or even herpes which can break out -initially with burning type symptoms. Hope u get help

How to stop the burning sensation on my genitals from nair?

How to stop the burning sensation on my genitals from nair?

Bikini line - ok,: BUT don't use Nair on genitals. Options – use washcloth soaked in cold water or even ice water as a compress x 15 minutes. No not apply ice directly to skin. Petroleum based lubricants/ jellies/ lotions (aquaphor ointment, vaseline) or aloe can help to maintain moisture. Hydrocortisone cream can be applied for significant inflammation. For blistering – consult with your doctor.

Ma am I have recently washed my genitals with head and shoulders and now feeling a burning sensation that has lasted all day. Is it ok to use cortizon?

Ma am I have recently washed my genitals with head and shoulders and now feeling a burning sensation that has lasted all day. Is it ok to use cortizon?

Irritation: The strong detergent and drying effect on natural oils in your genital area caused irritation. Instead of cortisone creams, I would try applications of soothing lotions with aloe in them. If redness and itching develop, then you could try cortisone type cream. See your physician as needed.

Why do I get a burning sensation in my genitals after showering? I don't use soap. I'm getting this on and off for weeks now. No UTI though?!

Why do I get a burning sensation in my genitals after showering? I don't use soap. I'm getting this on and off for weeks now. No UTI though?!

Hormones likely: The gradual decline in the female hormone Estradiol in the years leading up to menopause is associated with changes in the skin and mucus membranes of the female genital tract. Vaginal dryness, itching, and changes in sensation as well as increased risk for urinary infections are widely experienced symptoms. Consider having your urine tested and ask your doctor if topical estrogen cream could help.

I get a burning sensation after sex. I do not normally get this however recently has become a problem. Me and my boyfriend suffer from genital warts?

You may need to get: Checked for UTI or STD. Dyspareunia, or pain during or after sex, is not normal and will need some testing done to see what is causing the discomfort. Vaginal dryness can also cause some pain during intercourse, but if you are young that should not be an issue. See a healthcare provider for proper examination and diagnosis.

I'm experiencing painless fleshy genital bumps and pain w/urination (quality: stinging or burning sensation) &&' the bumps are going away with neosprin?

I'm experiencing painless fleshy genital bumps and pain w/urination (quality: stinging or burning sensation) &&' the bumps are going away with neosprin?

Get tested: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. When one area of the vagina has burning and stinging we get concerned for possible herpes infections. If the bumps themselves are painless then they may be genital warts or molluscum. An exam will be the fastest way to determine the cause

Immediate exam: Sounds like an STD, probably herpes HSV2 infection. Both you and your sexual partner (s) must be checked for STDs. Condoms would prevent this issue.
