I have a cluster of yellow little bumps around the head of my penis and some on my shaft it itches at night and skin is scaly and sheds when erect?

Yeast? Herpes??: This sounds like a yeast infection or nonspecific inflammation under the foreskin, especially if uncircumcised and the bumps are not painful. However, genital herpes also is a possibility -- more likely if pain, if the bumps started like clear fluid blisters, or if pain or swelling in the groin. See a doctor to be certain and get appropriate treatment, ASAP (within 1-2 d) for best diagnosis & Rx. ...Read more

I have slight itching, yellow discharge and cloudy urine no ordor?

Infection? STD?: Colored vaginal discharge usually means infection, especially STDs if at risk -- and absence of odor goes along with gonorrhea and chlamydia. Maybe yeast, but usually little discharge and white. You need to see a doctor ASAP. Cloudy urine may not mean much. Cloudy urine usually is due to undissolved minerals, which results from variations in food and fluid intake. ...Read more

I'm on aviane pills, my urine is yellow-cloudy and has a strong smell in the mornings. I have no pain or itching and I drink water. Is it serious?

Almost definitely no: Although cloudy urine is often associated with infection, the lack of painful urination and the urge to urinate frequently speak strongly against your having an infection. However, if it persists for more than 10-14 days, ask your doctor to order a urinalysis. ...Read more

I have had kidney stones for 2 weeks severe pain passing urine but now my skin is itching is this normal?

No sure But...: Itching is not part of kidney stones to my knowledge. But, besides allergic reaction possibly, there is a possibility of high phosphates and/or high parathyroid hormone levels, both can cause stones and itching. Also, high kidney numbers can result from stones and can cause itching. Would discuss with my doctor to check these if not done. ...Read more

I tested negative with wet mount and urine test for stds but I have itching on the skin outside of the vagina. Is there a topical ointment yousuggest?

Vaginal "azole": Vaginal area itching suggests a possible yeast infection, which can easily be missed on standard wet mount and STD testing. If you have vaginal yeast, just treating the irritated outside tissues won't help much. Try one of the OTC yeast vaginal creams like miconazole (Monistat®) or any other product with active ingredient ending in "azole". Recheck with your doc if that doesn't clear it up. ...Read more

If itching was caused by jaundice. Would my skin or eyes be visibly yellow?

Obstructive jaundice: Itching happens in the obstructive jaundice. The other type called hemolytic jaundice, happening from excess breakdown of red blood cells don't cause itching. When the level of bilirubin exceeds 2-3 mg, you can start seeing the jaundice. The jaundice you see in the sclera is not related to itching, but on how much bilirubin- the jaundice pigment is in the blood. ...Read more

Plz help, am having yellow pee, back pain, aches (especially shoulders) itching vagina & constipation. What could this be? Am told its all in my head: (

Not in your head: It is not in your head and avoid any provider that would suggest the same. These symptoms are commonly associated with many types of infectious processes like a urinary tract infection or kidney infection. Pelvic infections such as bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia or trich can cause these symptoms as well. In any case see your doctor if the symptoms continue, . ...Read more

Husband has very red skin w/yellow blisters in his crotch and inside leg area. Temperature 99.9. Yesterday just looked like a heat rash w/itching and burning. Today seems much worse. The reddest I have ever seen

Husband has very red skin w/yellow blisters in his crotch and inside leg area. Temperature 99.9. Yesterday just looked like a heat rash w/itching and burning. Today seems much worse. The reddest I have ever seen

This: This rash could be a few different things.
- impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria - either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics.
- contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids.
- viral illness such as chicken pox, shingles or herpes can also cause painful blisters on a red base. This can be treated with anti-virals or just needs to run its course depending on the severity of the infection.

The best thing to do is to contact his doctor and have him seen, since each possible problem requires different treatments. Good luck. ...Read more

20 year old female with vaginal problems. Burned when urinating, now my clitoris itches and burns when scratched, now I can't hold my urine, odorous.?

20 year old female with vaginal problems. Burned when urinating, now my clitoris itches and burns when scratched, now I can't hold my urine, odorous.?

Yeast? UTI? STD?: This sounds like a yeast infection. However, the "can't hold urine" symptom could be from a bacterial urinary tract infection. Depending on sexual risks, an STD like chlamydia or gonorrhea is possible. Whatever the cause, it should be easy to diagnose and treat. See a doctor. It's probably nothing dangerous, but you still should be examined in the next couple of days. Good luck! ...Read more
