There are other causes for itching and if it is not from dry skin, you should consider consulting a dermatologist. ...Read more

Not likely: But anything is possible. If you think that you may have been exposed to HIV please go and get tested for this and other stds. It is a manageable condition if diagnosed and treated early and will limit your capacity to expose others. Good luck and have a great holiday. ...Read more

Need exam: May just be anxiety. But when was the last time you had std testing? It could be nothing, or it could be prodromal symptoms for herpes. Are you having any bumps, any discharge, any other symptoms? Make an appointment to see a doc. ...Read more
