My vagina hole and skin around it has been burning, red and irritated since I had unprotected sex 6 months ago. I have NO std. What could be wrong??

Yeast infection?: This sounds typical for vulvovaginal candidiasis, i.e. vaginal yeast infection. Probably nohting to do with the sex 6 months earlier, just a coincidence; yeast isn't an STD. Best to see doctor for professional diagnosis and treatment. But could first try an OTC yeast treatment. Select a product with active ingredient ending in "azole" (miconazole, clotrimazole, etc). For sure see doc if no better. ...Read more

Do you think I should supposed to have a hole in my skin right after a sebaceous/epidermoid cyst removal?

One of Two Ways: Sebaceous cysts are filled with material that can infect the surrounding tissues. When a cyst is excised, this skin is typically sutured shut. When a cyst is lanced and its contents are evacuated, the wound is typically left open to drain as in your case. Since some excised cysts can become infected, some surgeons elect not to suture and keep the skin open packed to prevent an infection. ...Read more

Will laser skin resurfacing erase damage from rosacea? My rosacea caused some holes in my skin that really bother me. Is it possible that.

Will laser skin resurfacing erase damage from rosacea? My rosacea caused some holes in my skin that really bother me. Is it possible that.

Pulsed Dye Laser: Pulsed dye laser is an excellent choice for the treatment of facial rosacea. The treatment is very effective and is not painful. It has very little downtime and is done in the office. This should be combined with sun protection. In my opinion, the syneron/candela v-beam perfecta laser is the best pdl. This laser also provides improvement in pore size, wrinkles and some pigment. ...Read more

Why do I have a soft spot on my butt it feels like a hole covered with skin? Tjeres no discolaration, just a spot on my left butt cheek that is soft..

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. However, what you described may just be a dimple in the fat in the butt. If there are no symptoms, you may let it be. If you are overweight exercise and weight loss may help.
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. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. ...Read more
