Normally, there are always yeast and bacteria that live in the vagina.
If the bacteria overgrow, then you may end up with a malodorous, copious vaginal discharge.
If the yeast grow out of control, that may cause vaginal itching without discharge. Sometimes, antibiotics may kill off the beneficial bacteria that live there and you may get a yeast infection that needs to be treated. ...Read more

I woke up took a shower and then my private area started itching...btw I have fleas in my house bc of animals can u twll me how to stop it?
Your house needs to be "bombed"
That is needs an insecticide "bomb" which is let loose in the various rooms where animals are... you AND the animals should leave the house and your personal and the animal's fleas exterminated with safe washes of your hair and body!
Your Primary Care Provider can give you directions/materials for the humans. Your animals should be treated by the Vet!
Good Luck! ...Read more

I shaved my private area bald and now I have a smell and it itches like crazy and now there is white spots what does this mean?
My private hurts why? I've had stuff rub on it before. It itches sometimes. I get pain most when I pee. Its kinda brown on the tips.
I am assuming you are a male and we are talking about your penis. If this is not correct, please re-post your question. Also please explain what "stuff" you are referring to.
Itching can be a yeast infection (jock itch) or could be secondary to an std (sexually transmitted disease) like crabs. Pain with urination (peeing) can also be a symptom of an std like gonorrhea or chlamydia or may even be caused by a UTI (urinary tract infection). I suggest you see a doctor for this problem for diagnosis and treatment.
Good luck to you. ...Read more
