Hypoallergenic soaps and lotions which are pH balanced will help the skin recover more quickly, and reduce the itching that can last up to two weeks after treatment. ...Read more

What type of itch is typically associated with liver disease? Is it a deep itch or more of an ants crawling on your skin itch? Thanks.

Pruritus/Cholestasis: The liver has hepatocytes that elaborate bile into cannaliculi. Bile passageways coalesce into the common bile duct. When liver disease is present, flow of bile is interrupted and itching presents because of the buildup of toxic bile substances. Studies show this pruritus or itching affects the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet, but can be generalized as well. Varied intensity/duration. ...Read more

Complex..: It is not more serious than any other meningitis but comes close in some cases.

Not Really: This is most likely a condition called seasonal affective disorder or vitamin D deficiency. A lot of people do however, get more sluggish in the winter. Trying to keep a normal schedule and getting light during the day, especially natural light. I would also recommend getting your vitamin D level checked (25-OH D), by a doc who is familiar with this testing and tx & high dose D3 if necessary. ...Read more

Warm/hot sensation on skin of my shaft, no discharge, visible rash or anything. friction burn from masturbation, or STD from 4 seconds of oral sex?

Warm/hot sensation on skin of my shaft, no discharge, visible rash or anything. friction burn from masturbation, or STD from 4 seconds of oral sex?

Not an STD: No STD causes symptoms like this. And oral sex is safe sex -- not totally risk free, but STD risk much lower than for vaginal or anal sex. And very rare after such a brief exposure. You're the best judge about whether it could be a friction burn from vigorous masturbation: you were there, I wasn't! But if the skin looks normal, probably nothing wrong and the feeling should go away soon. ...Read more

2 weeks only: All topical cortisone creams should be limited to 2 weeks with a 1 week break before starting again. Protopic ointment is a non-cortisone product that works great for inverse psoriasis in the groin and sensitive skin areas. Thinning of the skin is a result of ling term cortisone cream use, not osteoporosis. Oral cortisone yes that's true. ...Read more
