Steroid creams are helpful in contact dermatitis but she should see a doctor to get diagnosed before using Hydrocortisone over the counter. ...Read more

I think I have pimples in my vagina that causes bleeding when i scratch them because it itches me. I have been having this for 4 yrs now i need help?

Get tested.: Vagina's do not typically get pimples. I am more concerned that what you are describing can be an infection like herpes. These can be little pimple like lesions that hurt or itch. They can bleed when scratched. A simple swab (viral culture of rapid test) can tell you if it is herpes. If not, having a look by a doctor can set you down the right path to cure. ...Read more
