Keratosis pilaris: Small white bumps on the skin, especially of legs and arms can be due to Keratosis pilaris. Sometimes this is due to dry skin, or mild irritation. Use fragrance free skin care products, don't scrub too hard, and moisturize daily and see if that helps. If this is no help get seen by a doc to see exactly what is going on.

See your PCP: You've described it so well, and now it's time to see your primary care physician, or gynecologist to identify what it is, and discuss your options. S/he may need to ultrasound it if it's large. If it's smaller, they will have a differential diagnoses of what it is to determine if it's cystic or lymphatic by location. I would refrain from wearing tight clothes/jean, until you determine what it is. ...Read more

Rash: Wearing tight clothes can cause pressure on some small blood vessels in the body. If these jeans are tight, they can cause dark spots to appear in the groin. I recommend loose fitting pants for the next 3 days, warm compress to dark spots for 10 minutes - twice a day & only Tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain. Motrin or NSAIDs can make the spots worse. If the spots to not improve in 1 week, make appt. w/ Dr ...Read more

Phimosis : A tight foreskin (phimosis) can become problematic if it is not routinely pulled back over the glans penis (head of the penis). This can lead to a surgical emergency called paraphimosis where the foreskin becomes stuck behind the glans penis and it swells. Phimosis can also be a problem if the foreskin can not be retracted sufficiently for proper cleaning. Circumcision is often the best option. ...Read more

I wear thongs and tight clothes . I also get many uti's and yeast infections . Other than changing my clothes what can I do so I can't get these ?

Changing habits: Antibiotics for UTIs and other infections can predispose women to get yeast infections. To help prevent this, wear cotton underwear, don't spend a long time in your sweaty gym clothes, etc. help prevent UTIs by drinking plenty of water, voiding after sex, and don't "hold it" for long periods of time. ...Read more

Maybe razor burn or: folliculitis. Insure you use fresh, sharp blades vice dull blades. If hair is > several mm long – trim before shaving. Wash area before shaving – warm water helps to soften hair. Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving. ...Read more

Shaving is a problem: Try clipping hairs with scissors to avoid the 'burn' from a razor which can cut off the hair too close- then it becomes an ingrown hair or folliculitis as you describe. Yes, clipping hairs will take longer, but if you want to avoid this problem and keep the 'lawn' mowed- that's what I would recommend. You could always take a cue from the French - they never shave or clip...vis a vis au naturel. ...Read more

What cause skin to be extremely sensitive to anything that touches me. The areas that hurt have fever. It hurts so bad, clothes are almost unbearable.

Sensitive skin: The skin often gets more sensitive when it is too dry. Consider avoiding soap that has antiperspirants in them. Try dove or cetaphil. Try using a moisturizing lotion after you shower. Reduce the frequency of bathing and the duration of your shower. Try using water that is less hot. You might suffer from a form of atopic dermatitis which is an inherited form of sensitive skin with itch. ...Read more
