What can I take to stop Jock Strap itch on my scrotum area? It itches and sometimes it bleeds when scratched

Antifungal creams

MOST "Jock-Itch" is a superficial fungal infection of the skin in the groin area. If this is the case, many athlete's foot remedies will work here as well. The ones to try first are Lotrimin ULTRA or Lamisil Cream. If it is because of yeast infection, use Nystatin cream.

I have STD i dont know for how long i had it i have chlamydia can i treat it in time? I want to be able to have babies can the STD cause me infertility. I really want a baby in the future. When i pee it hurts and it itches alot i hate having that itch.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia can only be cured with a prescription antibiotic, so you do need to see a doctor - and the sooner the better! Many people who have chlamydia are also infected with other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, so testing is very important for proper treatment. You may need multiple medications if you have multiple infections. If you are a woman and do not get tested and treated in a timely manner, the infection can spread to your uterus and fallopian tubes (called Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) and can lead to severe illness and/or infertility. I've attached a website below with more information. Good luck!

my nose itches when i take vicodin?

Histamine Release

What you are experiencing is not uncommon with Opioids such as hydrocodone in Vicodin, Lortab and Norco, codeine, morphine and similar meds.Certain patients do better with different drugs. A mild antihistamine like Phenergan can sometimes help with the itching and/or nausea which occur with opioids.

After I take a shower, my body skin itches so much?

Most likely...

Sebum
...you are allergic to the soap you are using, or you are showering too frequently and washing the protective oils off your skin. Try showering less, with a different (and mild) soap. If that doesn't work see your doctor, because it could be something unusual -- for example, the classic presentation of a rare disease called polycythemia vera is itching after bathing.
