Expert Q & A Answers About scabies

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?

I’ve been getting friction burns on my penis with sex...or am I allergic to something? Can you help?

My girlfriend and I just recently started having sex. Unfortunately, I’ve been getting friction burns on my penis...or maybe it’s some type of allergic reaction to her? Is there a way to get rid of these symptoms other than not having sex?
