I have recently seen some bites on my upper thigh and even a couple on my genital area and they look like small pimples and itchy with redness?

Many possibilities: Any of several skin conditions could cause this. Although people often assume insect bites, it's an uncommon cause. But I do wonder about scabies, or perhaps pubic lice (crabs). Or folliculitis, i.e. hair follicle inflammation, especially if you shave the area. No STD is a likely cause. See a doctor or clinic if more spots keep appearing or if not clearing up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

My boyfriend has a red itchy rash on his genital area what could this be?

My boyfriend has a red itchy rash on his genital area what could this be?

The jock in him?: The most common red itchy rash in the genital area would be a fungal infection. Other causes of rash can be a drug reaction (either from something spread in the area to which he is allergic or a fixed drug rash from something taken internally). Auto-immune diseases can sometimes cause groin rashes as can some sexually transmitted ds. Try otc lotrimin (clotrimazole) and if no response, see your doctor. ...Read more

Itchy rash just between thigh and my genital area. Now it's dry and skin are peeling off. The area with rash has widen and darken. Very itchy. Fungus?

Probably: This is most likely a dermatomycosis (superficial skin fungal infection), but without seeing it cannot diagnose. Most family doctors will recognize this immediately if it is what I think, and treatment can begin right away. Go and see your family doctor. ...Read more

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out. I have genital HSV 1. They won't go away?

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out. I have genital HSV 1. They won't go away?

Folliculitis?: This sounds most like folliculitis, or some other bacteria infection. Almost certainly not herpes -- both the symptoms (pus if popped) and location are wrong. And I'll bet this doesn't look much like your previous genital herpes outbreak (s), right? Anyway, see a doctor and take it from there. Good luck. ...Read more

Genital bumps: Genital bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without an exam. If the bumps are on the lower abdomen and pubic area, they could be infected hair follicles. STDs usually don't involve the skin of the stomach area. Consider a HealthTap Concierge visit for more personal evaluation. ...Read more

Sir iam suffering from scabies even I used medicines for a week iam feeling itchy rashes and itchy pimples like on my penis please sir what should ido?

It takes 2-3 weeks: It takes 2-3 weeks for scabies symptoms to subside after successful treatment. Even though the treatment killed the scabies mites, your body is still reacting to the dead mites, eggs, and droppings in your skin. Just wait it out; your symptoms will clear up in the next couple of weeks. ...Read more

I'm scared I have genital herpes. No red or itchy, but I have a line of what looks like whiteheads or pimples on my or is shaft?

Penile lesions: These may be sebaceous cysts, but can be molluscum contagiosum, a sexually transmitted viral infection, or possibly a variety of other minor conditions. They are most likely whiteheads or cysts. They are generally normal anatomical variants which will not produce long term damage. Show them to your pcp and they can refer you to dermatologist if needed.. ...Read more

I have non itchy rashes like pimples on my right arm (wrist to elbow) and a little on left arm. I am not on medication or has changed my diet.?

Recent rash?: This may be from a viral infection or a drug reaction. If the problem goes away after 10 days, don't worry about it. If the rash persists, then see a dermatologist. If pus is present, consider impetigo It is unlikely to be an allergic reaction in the absence of itching. ...Read more

Pinky Tiny Pimples-like Rashes on the back of both hands & starts to feel itchy after few hours...spreading to arm slowly...can I take Cetirizine?

Pinky Tiny Pimples-like Rashes on the back of both hands & starts to feel itchy after few hours...spreading to arm slowly...can I take Cetirizine?

You could but..: A better choice might be diphenhydramine (Benadryl) but the cetirizine is less likely to make you drowsy so you can start with that and if it doesn't work try the diphenhydramine. You can also try 1% hydrocortisone cream that you can get at the store on the rash to see if that alleviates the itching and the spread of the rash. ...Read more

Shaving problems: Shaving with a dull razor or shaving without lubricant can cause the base of the hairs to get pulled slightly out of the shaft, causing redness, irritation, pustules and ingrown hairs. Using hypoallergenic soaps or shave creams and applying moisturizers after shaving (replace razors regularly) can help reduce this. ...Read more

Itchy pimple rash on pubic area, cause?

Itchy pimple rash on pubic area, cause?

No waxing or shaving: Tretinoin (retin-a) cream can help decrease skin plugging or hyperkaratosis. Topical tretinoin cream may thin out the epidermis, reduce the buildup of dead skin cells, and decrease hair embedding into the follicies. Topical corticosteroid creams with a mild strength can be applied to reduce inflammation of inflamed ingrown hairs. ...Read more
