Expert Q & A Answers About psoriasis

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’m a virgin...could I have herpes?

I think I have genital herpes...I have a rash on my legs, and sometimes on the head of my penis. I am not married yet and I never had any kind of intercourse, oral sex or genital rubbing...so I don’t know how I got these symptoms. I shower daily, and I’m neat and clean. But I live in a hot and sweaty climate, and my legs get really sweaty during the summer. Could that be the cause?

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?

We used a condom at first, but then we stopped. That’s when I noticed this red rash and skin-colored bumps. What are they?

My girlfriend and I recently started having sex. When we had sex for the first time, I used a condom and everything was fine. Then, she got on the pill and we stopped using a condom. That’s when I developed a red rash and many skin-colored bumps on the shaft, scrotum and anus that are uncomfortable, but not painful. I don’t feel sick and I don’t have any trouble peeing. Is this an allergic reaction to her birth control or something that her body makes? Or, do I have an STD?

Do I have scabies or hives or something? I keep noticing a skin rash when I fool around with my girlfriend.

For the last three weeks, I have been getting skin rashes before and after fooling around with my girlfriend. (We aren't having sex.) These rashes (small bumps) come and disappear within an hour or so. Just recently, I spotted some on the back of my neck, on my lower chest and inner elbow. Do I have scabies or hives, or something else?
