Does mrsa itch?

No, it shouldn't

Mrsa
Infection with MRSA shouldn't cause itching. It more likely causes pain and discomfort.However, if you have an itchy rash caused by something else, too much scratching of your of skin can increase risk of infection by bacteria such as Staph or even MRSA.MRSA itself is not the reason for the itch.People that are carriers for MRSA also don't experience itching usually.Hope this helps!

butt itches bad?

Anal Itching?

Anus
I am assuming your anus itches. Several causes. Partial rectal prolapse can cause this. Mucous glands on the outside and wet and not meant to be there. Causes poor hygiene. Pin worms can cause this. Hemorrhoids can cause this. Yeast and other fungan and bacterial infecitons can cause this. Use baby wipes, Balneol or other rectal cleanser. Check for pin worms. Get anoscopic exam by MD.

vaginal itching?

Many causes

Open-uri20120812-4320-2vw8b2
Many infections can cause vaginal itching. A normal discharge can also cause it in some people. Even detergents or soaps can cause irritation in those sensitive tissues. An exam by a GYN or primary care provider can help rule out infection and determine a way to prevent or treat it.

Crotch itch cure?

Try OTC first

There are several over the counter medicines for Fungal infections that cause "jock itch." I would ask your pharmacist and try the over the counter first. If you still have the problem, than see your Dr. for Rx strength. Good luck.

Arm pit rash

The most common cause of an arm pit rash with itching is fungus build-up, usually induced by excess sweat. Treatment is usually with an OTC fungal cream like clotrimazole 1%. Other possible causes include sensitivity to deodorants or an inflammatory condition of the sweat glands in the arm pit.
