Many possibilities: There are too many kinds of genital rash to even guess at the cause. However, probably not an STD: most genital rashes are not STDs, and no STD is likely to cause both genital and non-genital rash at the same time. See your personal physician or a dermatologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Why can't I shave my pubic hair?! I'm a female and when I shave and the hair starts to grow it itches like crazy! Is it normal? I've been struggling..

Why can't I shave my pubic hair?! I'm a female and when I shave and the hair starts to grow it itches like crazy! Is it normal? I've been struggling..

That may be a sign: May be a sign from beyond. A sign that there is no real need nor any mandate to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair (and lead to more cases of ingrown hairs and itchy pubises). Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave it off. It's just fashion. ...Read more

I have wihte flakes on my pubic hair is it sry skin or crabs? I have white flakes on my pubic hair it don't itch but my body itches is it just really dry skin?

Human : Human pubic lice or "crabs" are typically very small but can be seen attached to the pubic hair and may have a characteristic bluish-gray color around the area. They skin can become a bit red and itchy and may develop some white flakes. They are spread from sexual contact. I would see a dermatologist so that they can differentiate between crabs and other common conditions that can occur in that area such as eczema, psoriasis, etc. ...Read more

If the brown discharge is bothering you, that is, if it's lasting for more than a few days, then you might want to consider some hormones to help regulate your cycle so that you don't have as much spotting. ...Read more

Sometimes the openings of these glands become obstructed, causing fluid to back up into the gland. At times, the fluid within the cyst may become infected. See your doctor to get it drained if needed and treated. ...Read more

I have rashes in my pubic area.its also itching badly.can elica cream be used for that?

I have rashes in my pubic area.its also itching badly.can elica cream be used for that?

No: This is a potent topical corticosteroid cream. The pubic area is a sensitive area and I would avoid using a cream this potent as you can have significant side effects like skin atrophy, prominent blood vessels, and stretch marks if you don't have a pathology in that area that requires this. Please consider seeing a dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment options. Best of luck. ...Read more
