Clean and dry: Keep it clean and dry. You may put an antibiotic ointment, like a neosporin ointment, available over the counter.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Help, when I walk and my buttocks make friction, its start to bother, like burning, andwhen I looks there is a redarea and some bumps, what coulditbe?

Friction irritation: This does happen to some people. If it only happens after you have walked quite a bit, then it may be friction irritation. Are you carrying extra weight? Is it worse when you sweat? As long as it goes away in a day or two, that's most likely all it is. If it stays around, the irritation can lead to secondary fungal or bacterial infections. Try keeping area dry and clean. ...Read more

Very painful friction burn just inside my vaginal opening. What can I do to heal it and dull the pain?

Tincture of time: First, this is what NOT to do. Do not continue intercourse or other vaginal stimulation until it heals. Do not place oil based ointments, lubricants, pads, or commercial products on the area. DO see a MD who can provide a safe Rx specific for treating the area if it is a "friction burn". Many time these issues will heal on their own if left to Mother Nature over time. ...Read more

How can you get rid of friction burn from sex or how can you self lubricate yourself?

Sex and lubrication: You are almost there. The question is a good one. The more you have passion and foreplay, the more your natural lubrication will get your vagina ready for penetration.

But, it is also just fine to introduce some lube yourself to your vagina but you can also lube up your partner prior to insertion. This can be turned into some play as well.

Lube can enhance sexual pleasure. ...Read more

Is there any way to stop the pain and itching from a friction burn to the vagina?

Is there any way to stop the pain and itching from a friction burn to the vagina?

Need to examine: A "friction burn" should heal in a couple of days. If your symptoms have lasted longer than that, it may be some thing else, e.g. herpes. If the symptoms have not abated in a couple of day, it would be prudent to consult your doctor, in-person.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I have dark friction burn on my penis. I know it's from prone mstrbation, which I've stopped years ago. I've been trying man 1 man oil. Not going away?

See your doctor: It's not likely that friction burns could cause scar that would persist for years, unless the burn was so severe that your pain would have put you in hospital.

Without a thorough physical examination, it's really not possible to know what you really have, much less what might help. Hence, I recommend you go see your doctor, and look further into this. ...Read more

I have a friction burn on my penis from masturbating and was wondering if it is safe to masturbate while the wound is still healing?

No: Any open wound should be given time to heal - continued friction may delay this leaving it more open to infection. Take a break! Make sure you are using a water based lubricant to avoid this in the future. If you are masturbating too frequently and it is causing you excessive worries or guilt talk to your pediatrician. It's a normal part of sexuality - but too much of a good thing can be worrisome ...Read more

The lower part of my vagina is very sore feeling almost like a friction burn? What could it be? It also hurts to wipe after using the restroom: (

Yeast? Herpes?: This could be any of several things. A yeast infection could do this, but usually isn'tso severe. Chemical irritation or allergy to something, e.g. latex (condoms), spermicide, soap, etc. Genital herpes is also a good possibility, especially if there are blister-like bumps or open sores. See a doctor ASAP; if it's herpes, diagnosis is most accurate and treatment most effective if done early. ...Read more
