Dermatologist: See a dermatologist. Your eruption occurs in areas of friction. Yeast infections occur in these intertriginous areas, but neck involvement is usually not seen with yeast infections. Since you have such scattered involvement you should be examined for diagnosis and treatment.

Would a thread lift be effective at my age? I am 50 and am seeking a way to get rid of the ugly skin folds on my neck. I would rather avoid a lengthy recovery process if there is an alternative..

Not recommended.: This procedure uses a barbed thread that is placed in the sub cutaneous (under the skin) plane to to pull the skin. The problem is that pulling skin will not correct that situation because the problem is with the under lying muscle-fibrous layer of the neck and face. It will create un-nateral pulling, and will not last because the skin stretches.

Irritation: This sounds like an irritant contact dermatitis. It is likely from the irritation caused by sweat. Do your best to keep the area dry and it will probably improve. If not then you should have your pediatrician have a look.

I have a tiny soft skin "growth" on my labia majora close to the fold that connects to my inner thigh, the bump has a pubic hair growing through it (not exactly the center) can it be a genital wart?

I have a tiny soft skin "growth" on my labia majora close to the fold that connects to my inner thigh, the bump has a pubic hair growing through it (not exactly the center) can it be a genital wart?

More than likely not: The hair is probably ingrown. A wart would be more fleshy and would get bigger over time. You can always have it looked at. I would be more concerned if it increased in size.
