Treatment for less facial hair and though hair appeared on other private parts but not developed fully?

Treatment for less facial hair and though hair appeared on other private parts but not developed fully?

Smooth man?: If I understand your question correctly, you are not satisfied with your beard and would like a thicker growth and more pubic & body hair. Around 5% of men never get chest hair or beards thick enough to grow well; these men don't go bald. In the usa, many (maybe most) women prefer this. It's genetic and you're unlikely to alter it. Focus on getting muscular and trim.

I am type two diabetic and started insulin 3 weeks ago. I have had genital itching and swelling since. Should I be concerned?

I am type two diabetic and started insulin 3 weeks ago. I have had genital itching and swelling since. Should I be concerned?

Probably unrelated: While diabetes can affect your immunity, it's unlikely that Insulin caused your symptoms. Still, because you're at increased risk for infection, go see your doctor for an evaluation & treatment if necessary.

How can I ease the pain and swelling from genital herpes? I've been on several antibiotics but still having frequent reoccurrences, worse than before

See answer: Antivirals, not antibiotics, are used for treating herpes infections. If you are having frequent episodes of symptomatic, bothersome genital herpes (>2 a year), you should consider daily suppressive therapy (acyclovir, valacyclovir, or famciclovir) which has been shown to reduce outbreaks by 80-85%. Usually, stay on for 9 months to 2 years, and then stop and convert back to episodic treatment.

Is a swelling in the genital area a sign of HIV infection?

Is a swelling in the genital area a sign of HIV infection?

Not necessarily: Swelling in the genital/inguinal area can be a swollen lymph node, which can be from hiv, but it is not necessarilly so, because other diseases can cause that also; when in doubt go see a doctor to evaluate it.

What should I do after my air removing cream on my genital area resulted in swelling, burning pain and redness?

What should I do after my air removing cream on my genital area resulted in swelling, burning pain and redness?

Wait for the reactio: You need to wait for the reaction to subside and consider the consequence when you try to do these things in the future. The cream caused a sever irritation to get rid of hair and it is doing what it said it would do.

I am experiencing genital sores, swelling, pain and itching. I don't think it's herpes or a yeast infection though.

Prob herpes or yeast: Herpes and yeast are by far the most common causes of such a problem. If redness and swelling of labia plus small sores (like cracks) in the sore area, yeast is likely. If larger sores, herpes is the best bet. New genital herpes often shows up without known risk, e.g. partner with no symptoms and no known herpes. Get expert care e.g. NHS GUM clinic, ASAP for accurate diagnosis & Rx if herpes.

Chronic itching around pelvic area & into inner thigh closest to genital area. There's some swelling small bumps after scratching, leaves scars. Dry?

Chronic itching around pelvic area & into inner thigh closest to genital area. There's some swelling small bumps after scratching, leaves scars. Dry?

Fungal infection: Sounds like jock itch (tinea cruris). Caused by a fungus and results in red, itchy skin in the groin area that can expand onto the thighs. Most OTC anti-dandruff shampoos like Nizoral have ketoconazole in them that will treat the fungus. This shampoo can be applied in the shower. If this does not clear the infection, follow up with FP doc.

I have vaginal swelling and yellow discharge, my genital area burns after urinating and sitting! Dr has given me sertaconazol but its not helping?

Back to see doctor..: For sexual active females with the depicted scenario, it's reasonable to use medication covering yeast, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. So, it's logical to report what and how you responded to the prescribed drug and additional treatment may be considered and provided. Besides, practicing healthy lifestyle without overindulgence and obsession would benefit all willing souls for a long happy life..

Vulvitis? Herpes?: You don't say how long this has been going on. If only a few days, a new genital herpes infection sounds like a good possibility. No matter how recent, keep working with your doctor. If you're not seeing a genitourinary medicine specialist, that might be a good next step.

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

Reading conflicting info online - can genital herpes (HSV-2) of the groin cause lymph node swelling in the neck along with the groin?

That's news to me: Since essentially all young adults have a few swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and it's healthy (they're your friends), it would be impossible to investigate this (frankly silly-sounding) claim. If the nodes in your neck flare when your genital herpes lesions do, maybe there's a connection. No big deal. Otherwise, stop worrying and get on with your life and be thankful for good health.
