Rash anus: hello, this sounds like a reactivation of a herpes rash.Remember herpes in this area is not only spread sexually.Its also spread by self-inoculation, ie: you touch a herpes sore in the mouth, dont wash hands then go to BR and wipe after toilet activity. You can treat this with mild 1% hydrocort, or Vaseline, or moisturizer. I would not go anti-viral route for mild rash.It may recur.WASH HANDS, etc ...Read more

Sounds like: It sounds like you have an abscess, or possibly an infected (or abscessed) bartholin;s gland, depending on where the mass is. Definitely sounds like an infection. You can try applying warm compresses to the area several times a day, which encourages the abscess to drain on it's own, but if it doesn't drain, or resolve on it's own, then you need to see a doctor about antibiotics or drainage. ...Read more

Many possibilities: Sores in this area can be caused by skin conditions; allergic reactions; infections such as herpes, chancroid, molluscum contagiosum, staph infections; hydradenitis; cancer; etc. An Ob/Gyn can do cultures, biopsies and other tests to determine the cause.

Persisting "yeast": Was the yeast diagnosis certain? How severe was it? Initial genital herpes can cause yeast-like symptoms and could also cause a new painful genital area red bump 3 weeks later. Check it out with your doctor, especially if your apparent yeast infection had open sores, tender swelling in the groin, or headache or fever. ...Read more

Fungal infection: A yeast or fungal infection is possible. An antifungal cream may help. Keeping the area dry and clean will help. Athletes get fungal infections on their feet and call it athlete's foot. Some people call fungal infections in the groin "crotch rot." sometimes steroids have to be used with anti-fungals to reduce the inflammation. ...Read more

I felt itching on foreskin. Scratched some. Now swollen to about 1 inch long x 1/2 wide x 1/4 raised. Applied cortisone. Now no itch. Still swelling.

I felt itching on foreskin. Scratched some. Now swollen to about 1 inch long x 1/2 wide x 1/4 raised. Applied cortisone. Now no itch. Still swelling.

Wait & see, but...: Glad topical cortisone helps, but still watch & look to find out the underlying cause for what just happened to foreskin. If possible causes for the reported changes in foreskin can be verified, act accordingly to eliminate the potentially inciting factors. However, if highly suspected to be associated with tight long foreskin, circumcision is the choice of long-term care. Best wishes... ...Read more

Sebaceous cyst?: An STD is a very unlikely cause of this sort of problem. More likely an inflamed (infected?) sebaceous cyst or something similar. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up in another week or so. Or sooner if it continues to enlarge, becomes sore, and ASAP if fever or spreading redness. (Your concern about STD suggests you may be at risk, so get tested to be safe. But not the cause of this problem.) ...Read more

Did you have any other symptoms, such as fever? ...Read more
