Herpes? Syphilis: Please see your Gynecologist as soon as possible. Explain your worries, then the doctor will examine you and, finally you are likely to have blood work done. May take a day or two to get the result.

Red spots w/dry skin: On the hands, these most commonly would be eczema, psoriasis or fungal infection. Eczema and psoriasis are treated similarly however a fungal infection would get worse with eczema treatment. Please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment.

Photo?: To diagnose you correctly, I would need to see the "bumps", and have more history. Any fever or sweats? Any history of allergies? Joint pains? Recent antibiotic use? Recent trip to the dentist? Family history of connective tissue disorders or autoimmune diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, or thyroid disease)? Are any of these bumps painful?

Dermatographism: When the skin welts up after scratching, it is call dermatographism. Antihistamine often helps control this condition. Sometimes dry skin can cause it as well and you may try applying a moisturizer to the area especially right after bathing to see if this helps.

Exterior penis skin. Skin at base shaft has a red patch, was told it's fungal. I also have some dry skin and spots. How can I improve the condition?

Fungal cream: If this is really 'fungal' - it should respond to an anti-fungal cream. Something like clotrimazole 1% twice a day for a week would be worth trying. Fungus in the groin region LOVES moisture - so try keeping it as dry as possible. Baby powder, a fan, wearing a towel - those are things that might help. If no relief with antifungal cream, go back to the doc and make sure this isn't an STD. Take care

Pityriasis rosea?: This is just a good guess. Could be other things. But if it's pr it will resolve on its own. However it could be other entities I would hate to scare you with here. Suggest a derm eval.

Candida: This is most likely candida, which is a yeast - a distant relative of the skin fungus that causes "jock itch". Try one of the over-the-counter anti-fungal creams; if that doesn't work, you'll need to see a dermatologist for a precise diagnosis.

I have a big red spot on top of head of penis it doesn't hurt or itch and it ain't sensitive but when it get really dry skin starts to flake off?

Here ares some. ..: Without a direct look, it's hard to guess what you got. But, one thing for sure in your favor is most likely the spot is benign & harmless if it does not grow in size or erode. So, have Doc take a look at it for confirmation and counseling.

I have a red circle looking spot on my mons. It is flaking like dry skin. What could be causing this? Almost looks like a ringworm circle but 1 inch

I have a red circle looking spot on my mons. It is flaking like dry skin. What could be causing this? Almost looks like a ringworm circle but 1 inch

Over the counter: It may be ring worm. Try using over the counter medication for ring worm. If that does not treat the lesion in 7-10 days, you may wish to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

I'm confused I've gotten a cold sore but it looks like a dry skin spot red what stage is this and what happens now I have no symptoms I used abreva?

I'm confused I've gotten a cold sore but it looks like a dry skin spot red what stage is this and what happens now I have no symptoms I used abreva?

Two possibilities: Either it is not a cold sore but its something else. The second possibility is that the abreva prevented a cold sore from developing. Put vaseline or aquaphor on it for a week or two. If it does not go away see a dermatologist.

Dry, itchy, skin with some red spots, any suggestions?

See a doctor: Consider using moisturizers for your skin and applying after a shower. Use witch hazel for the itching and aveeno (oatmeal) bath oil while in the shower on your wash cloth. A doctor can properly diagnose the problem and start treatment. Avoid scratching as it can cause discoloration to your skin.
