AintNothinLikeThReal: Read "Portnoy's Complaint" by Philip Roth. And don't worry, that skin heals fast if you don't irritate it again. Use a mild soap and put a thin layer of any antibiotic ointment on it (just don't be tempted to use that ointment for anything else, at least for a while!). Then think of switching to a chamois cloth--or waiting for a real vagina. ...Read more

I have a bunion on my left foot skin has some redness and inflammation not painful. but sore when shoe is on causing friction. any suggestions?

Bunions: Bunions are a deformity that is caused when the big toe drifts towards the lesser toes, creating a painful bump on the inside of your foot. Unlike most conditions of the foot and ankle, bunions have limited options for conservative treatment. Shoe changes, padding, and anti-inflammatory medications are ways to temporarily manage the pain associated with bunions. ...Read more

I got a red friction mark on my cheek it's healed about 90% will the pinkness disappear completely!? I'm very upset!

Depends...: It all depends on what caused it, how long it has been going on, how deep and your type of skin. If it has healed that much we should expect to completely fade away but we cannot tell unless we have a full knowledge of what it is. If it doesn't go away then you should visit your doctor or Dermatologist( skin doctor). ...Read more

My boyfriend and I haven't had sex in a while,  until about 3 days ago.  after I have been seeing very light red spotting.  Is it due to friction?

Friction/Irritation: A lot of this depends on the timing of your cycle. It is possible that during intercourse, your cervix was irritated (causing the mild spotting you are experiencing). If continues or gets worse, please get checked by your doc. Thanks for your question! ...Read more

Wore a thong for the 1st time and my upper buttcrack is now red/irritated and there's a small red bump. Is it from the friction or something serious?

Wore a thong for the 1st time and my upper buttcrack is now red/irritated and there's a small red bump. Is it from the friction or something serious?

SKIN IRRITATION: Sounds like a superficial abrasion or contact dermatitis. Neither are serious. Both are self-limiting. I'd recommend 0.5% Hydrocortisone applied twice daily... and NO thong for now. If symptoms don't resolve or if symptoms worsen, follow up w/ you doctor ...Read more

Sometimes this can happen when articles of clothing are "bunched up" and rubbed in that area as well, such as jeans or underwear. ...Read more

I'm experiencing pleural friction rub on my right side. I don't have any pain just the weird vibrating sensation when I breathe. How do I get rid?

I'm experiencing pleural friction rub on my right side. I don't have any pain just the weird vibrating sensation when I breathe. How do I get rid?

Friction rub: Hi Prios, this usually happens when you have fluid, inflammation, and sometimes scarring in your lungs. If it is after you have recovered from a viral illness or pna, then it usually goes away after a week or two. If this is new, and associated with new infectious symptoms, then you should see your doctor for an evaluation. A lung exam and a chest xray are the usual studies. Hope that helps. ...Read more
