Melanoma Signs: The first signs can appear in one or more atypical moles. That's why it's so important to get to know your skin very well and to recognize any changes in the moles on your body. Look for the abcde signs of melanoma, and if you see one or more, make an appointment with a physician immediately. Abcde: asymmetry, irregular border, varied color, large diameter, evolving or changing. ...Read more

Good day. I've had burning while urinating and red spots in genital area. STD tests~a month ago-all negative. Urologist thinks prostatitis. Thoughts?

Good day. I've had burning while urinating and red spots in genital area. STD tests~a month ago-all negative. Urologist thinks prostatitis. Thoughts?

CPPS?: Prostatitis or infections that cause it don't cause "red spots"; separate problems. At age 28, most apparent prostatitis is chronic pelvic pain syndrome. CPPS overlaps with prostatitis but there is no infection; urinary discomfort or pain are from pelvic muscle tension, often anxiety driven, e.g. after a regretted sexual exposure. OK to try cipro (ciprofloxacin) per urologist's advice, but it may not work. ...Read more

So my genital area is hairy, in the spot where a bump was present and went away, there is no hair there, why?

So my genital area is hairy, in the spot where a bump was present and went away, there is no hair there, why?

Loss of pubic hair: Could have been scarring of hair follicles and therefore there is no hair, just like in a burn. Sometimes fungal infections lead to loss of hair as well Would wait a month hand see if remains hairless or if hair returns

Penis bumps: Penis bumps can be many things. Some STDs, some not. Only general advice can be given without a photo or physical exam. Top 2 photos are non-STDs: Fordyce spots (sebum which can be extricated by M.D. or left alone), Infected hair follicle (plucked and kept clean). Bottom 2 photos are STDs (HPV and Molluscum) to be evaluated by your MD so s/he can rule out other STDs and council you for prevention. ...Read more

If 1 has HSV 2 and has only had outbreaks around the oral area, does that mean (s)he can still get the symptoms around the genital area in the future?

If 1 has HSV 2 and has only had outbreaks around the oral area, does that mean (s)he can still get the symptoms around the genital area in the future?

Maybe: The lab tests for herpes simplex I and ii are imperfect and subject to false positives and negatives, and HSV ii acquired on the mouth usually stays there. Since diagnosis and treatment / prevention are based primarily on the clinical picture, and are largely empirical, i'd urge you to relax. And congratulations on your proactive approach to your health. ...Read more

No symptoms associated with Herpes. I developed 7 bumps in my genital area after oral relations. Partner of 5yrs, no signs of sores. Only partner. HELP?

I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

I have two spots in my genital region near the vulva that are slightly red, not raised, and the only symptom is they itch like crazy! What is it?

Not certain.: When you say "near the vulva, do you mean "in the pubic area" or "on the outer labia"? Itchy lesions in the pubic area can be caused by insect bites (including flea bites and pubic lice, ugh!). Itching in the vaginal or labial area can be caused by an allergic reaction or a yeast infection. If they don't clear up in a day or so, or if you notice other symptoms, get medical care. ...Read more

True that you are less likely to get hsv1 in the genital area (oral sex) if you already have it in the mouth area? What are symptoms of genital hsv1?

True that you are less likely to get hsv1 in the genital area (oral sex) if you already have it in the mouth area? What are symptoms of genital hsv1?

Yes it's true: I think this is your third question. People are immune (or at least highly resistant) to new infections with the HSV type they already have, anywhere on the body. Symptoms are identical for HSV1 or HSV2, typically with blisters that become painful sores, first infection often with swollen lymph nodes nearby, sometimes fever. Genital HSV1 usually causes far fewer recurrent outbreaks than HSV2. ...Read more

I have test positive for HSV 1 but I have not any symptoms. I have been having dry spots on my penis that I am not sure is my first outbreak. I know that HSV 1 usually cause moutb cold sores but since I have not had any I am curious if I may have genital

Maybe: We know now that 1 in 5 Americans have the HSV 1 and/or 2 virus.The vast majority of them don't even know that they have it. The slide used in lectures is of an ice berg with the portion above the water being those who have had outbreaks. Unfortunately both types 1and2 can be either oral or genital and the only way to know where u have the virus is by having an outbreak. The best advice is to b safe ...Read more

No "sex play"?: If you have no contact with another sexually, then std less likely as source of symptoms (which were not well explained in q). More likely tinea / yeast ("jock itch") flare up. If still present, should see your dr for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Red/purple spots on thigh, clustered closely together, covering large area, long streaks. Had very similar rash before several times over the years.?

Exam needed: Such an eruption could be due to inflammation of tiny blood vessels (vasculitis) which may be caused by an autoimmune disorder or leakage of blood from capillaries (petechiae) seen with low platelets, for example. Your physician or dermatologist would have to inspect this eruption in order to make a diagnosis and order any appropriate tests. ...Read more
