I have a burning itch on my vagina. What could it be? Would douching help?

I have a burning itch on my vagina. I live in a hot tropical environment so I’m always sweating, but I do my best to stay clean by washing the area often. I’ve even stopped having sex to prevent any other problems, but that doesn’t seem to help. What could this be? Do you recommend douching?

I itch in the testicle region. And one testicle looks bigger than before...also, my scrotum can get really red. What’s going on?

Over the last year, I’ve been itching in the testicle region...it comes and goes. My scrotum can get really red, and sometimes it feels like shooting pain or insects biting. One of my testicles also looks bigger than before. What’s going on?

I have a rash-like wound on the top part of my penis...what could it be?

I am 30-years-old and I have been suffering for the last three months from a painful wound on my penis. It looks like a skin rash right below the top part of the penis. If I am not sexually active, the pain and the wound disappear. But when I’m back to any sexual activity, there it comes is again: burning, very slightly bleeding and eventually getting swollen. I have tried an hydrocortisone cream before but is just made it worse. Do you think is a kind of fungus? What can I do about it?
