My private hurts why? I've had stuff rub on it before. It itches sometimes. I get pain most when I pee. Its kinda brown on the tips.
I am assuming you are a male and we are talking about your penis. If this is not correct, please re-post your question. Also please explain what "stuff" you are referring to.
Itching can be a yeast infection (jock itch) or could be secondary to an std (sexually transmitted disease) like crabs. Pain with urination (peeing) can also be a symptom of an std like gonorrhea or chlamydia or may even be caused by a UTI (urinary tract infection). I suggest you see a doctor for this problem for diagnosis and treatment.
Good luck to you. ...Read more

Do I have genital herpes?! I have no bumps but my vulva is bright red and itches like crazy. This is the second time since I've had sex.
Probably not herpes: Vaginal itching and vulva redness is more likely due to a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or trichomonasis. Herpes can cause itching but more likely to be painful also. The lesions of herpes are more like blisters or open sores than bumps. The best way to determine what is causing the problem is to have it evaluated by a doctor who can then provide proper treatment. ...Read more

This sounds: Like hemorrhoids, either internal and/or external and does not sound like genital warts at all. Caffeine causes the itching and makes you constipated, having to push and thus hemorrhoid symptoms. Eliminate all caffeine and alcohol and drink 80-100 oz fluids per day. See a colorectal surgeon if this does not resolve. ...Read more

Anxiety: Itching also arouses itching on another person. However if your house is a/c, one must consider dry skin as an issue.

If no, then the couch needs be fumigated or discarded. ...Read more
