Can HSV 1 in genitals cause idiopathic peripheral neuropathy? Recurrent outbreaks. Do not take meds for it. Now have burning/tingling in feet.
Not exactly: Any HSV type of genital infection could cause problems farther downstream in terms of neuropathy since the viral particles recede after causing their outbreaks into the lumbosacral ganglia and that could then, lead to problems in other root zone distributions but then, it wouldn't be IDIOPATHIC and you may then, see the same blistery breakdowns you see elsewhere. Other causes should be ruled out. ...Read more

Me male 25yrs.since 2 days i had intense itchiness near my genital area.So i applied anti-bacterial cream and now i have red burning scrotum skin.HELP?
Good day. I've had burning while urinating and red spots in genital area. STD tests~a month ago-all negative. Urologist thinks prostatitis. Thoughts?
CPPS?: Prostatitis or infections that cause it don't cause "red spots"; separate problems. At age 28, most apparent prostatitis is chronic pelvic pain syndrome. CPPS overlaps with prostatitis but there is no infection; urinary discomfort or pain are from pelvic muscle tension, often anxiety driven, e.g. after a regretted sexual exposure. OK to try cipro (ciprofloxacin) per urologist's advice, but it may not work. ...Read more

Can cold sores be spread to the genital area? Is it possible for someone with cold sores to cause genital herpes in another person?
Yes, it is possible.
Cold sores or fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (hsv-1) and are extremely common. Most people become infected as an infant or small child when kissed or by sharing eating utensils with an adult who has the virus. 20% of the cases of genital herpes are also caused by hsv-1 thought to be infections from oral-genital contact. The virus is most contagious when someone has a cold sore, but can still be passed along by someone who does not. Many people do not even know that they are infected because the virus can "hide out" in the nerve cells for very long periods of time - for some people it hides out forever and they never get a cold sore. For others, the virus can "wake up" at any time and that's when a cold sore happens. No one knows exactly what causes a cold sore to appear - sometimes stress, illness, fevers, colds, sunlight, cold weather, menstruation, certain foods, allergies, you name it! they usually last 7-10 days and are more of an annoyance than a danger unless you have a weakened immune system or contract a bacterial infection on top of the cold sore.

I read that baby powder with talc,can cause ovarian cancer. I used it about 20 times in my life in the genital area,about 10 years ago.What is my risk?
I doubt it: I have been following this stuff since the 1970's and I think it's junk science. Epidemiology by its nature generates an enormous amount of garbage. The claim does't make sense biologically and I am sorry it is turning out to be a money-maker for tort law. Don't worry and use cornstarch from now on. ...Read more
