Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course. ...Read more

I have a friction burn on my penis from masturbating and was wondering if it is safe to masturbate while the wound is still healing?

No: Any open wound should be given time to heal - continued friction may delay this leaving it more open to infection. Take a break! Make sure you are using a water based lubricant to avoid this in the future. If you are masturbating too frequently and it is causing you excessive worries or guilt talk to your pediatrician. It's a normal part of sexuality - but too much of a good thing can be worrisome ...Read more

Yeast? Herpes?: This could be any of several things. A yeast infection could do this, but usually isn'tso severe. Chemical irritation or allergy to something, e.g. latex (condoms), spermicide, soap, etc. Genital herpes is also a good possibility, especially if there are blister-like bumps or open sores. See a doctor ASAP; if it's herpes, diagnosis is most accurate and treatment most effective if done early. ...Read more

Is there any way to stop the pain and itching from a friction burn to the vagina?

Need to examine: A "friction burn" should heal in a couple of days. If your symptoms have lasted longer than that, it may be some thing else, e.g. herpes. If the symptoms have not abated in a couple of day, it would be prudent to consult your doctor, in-person.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. ...Read more

Vulvar swelling causing friction burn of the labia minora. Diagnosed with vulvitis. Clobetasol works when I use it but swelling returns when I stop.

Clobetasol is a steroid cream and decreases inflammation, but if the swelling keeps coming back then you haven't yet found the cause. Clobetasol is just treating the symptoms. See your doc. ...Read more
