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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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.

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.

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. ...Read more

Painful sexual intercourse, painful urge to urinate, bleeding, swelling, itching? Possible genital herpes outbreak?

Possibly herpes: These symptoms are quite typical for newly acquired genital herpes; too severe for an outbreak of recurrent herpes. New herpes is especially likely if at risk, e.g. new partner or partner known to have genital herpes. Severe urinary tract infection or other STD also are possible. Get care ASAP, the sooner the better both for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment if it's herpes. Good luck! ...Read more

Should teenage boys shave their private parts for mostly hygiene and/or comfort?

Should teenage boys shave their private parts for mostly hygiene and/or comfort?

Should?--- No. : It appears to be the norm now for young men to either entirely shave or trim the genital area. It appears that sexualy partners play a role in this decision with liberalization of sexual practices, especially oral sex. There may many reasons for this practice but it is not abnormal and if you are a parent, this should not be a concern. Piercings are another issues to address and on the rise. ...Read more
