Ouch: Try using a vaginal lubricant such as KY or Astroglide. If you masturbate without allowing the vagina to lubricate either naturally or with an aid then you may tear or irritate the fragile vaginal tissue which will cause discomfort. ...Read more

?Folliculitis: This sounds like folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicle). Staph can cause it. But there are other things that can cause a folliculitis. You should have the contents of one of these "whiteheads" cultured to be sure it is staph before you accept an antibiotic. And if you shave your bikini area it could be you are spreading the problem. So, stop shaving for now, get treatment and new razors. ...Read more

Taking care to shave: I know that you said that you are "taking care when shaving", but the itchy red & dry mons pubis indicate that this area of your anatomy is "not happy".(smile) Try using Dove, Caress, or Ivory when washing this area and rinsing thoroughly. By the way, yes, you might want to stop shaving for at least one month to allow this area to heal the rash. Rash still there after 1 month?-see MD. ...Read more

See your doctor: You could be having a reaction to something you have come into contact with, (change in hygiene or laundry product), or a yeast infection. It is best to see your doctor to make sure it is nothing serious, and he/she will most likely prescribe a steroid cream to treat it unless it is an infection, then you will need antibiotics. ...Read more

Well: You likely have recurrent bacterial vaginosis. It's colonization of bacteria form the colon in the vagina and not uncommon. Metronizadole will usually clear it; the sore may be an infected hair follicle, or, not to scare you, but could be a number of things including herpes. It's much more common than people think. ( probably not that) see your physician, we always test for chlamydia and gonnor. ...Read more

The area between my vagina and thighs are itchy, red, burning, and smell kinda gross. I have aired it out while sleeping but the itch will not end.

Probably yeast: Try keeping the area clean and dry. You can try over the counter lam idol cream twice a day. If it is not improving after a few days see your doctor. It may take a week or so to go away. If your skin touches itself there all the time try putting a cotton hanky between your legs to separate the skin and it will keep the infection from coming back.You can use Hydrocortisone cream for the itch. ...Read more

My vagina area has been itchy, dry &red. there's a red spot on my vulva, flat not a bump. I was prescribed antibiotics recently. What could this be?

Yeast infection: With recent antibiotic use, the most likely explanation is a yeast infection in the vagina. Try an OTC treatment for 7 days or see your doctor for the prescription pill, Diflucan. If the red, flat spot doesn't go away after treatment, get seen by an OB/GYN for further examination to determine what that spot is. ...Read more
