dandruff

Hi, A few days ago, I noticed I had pain in my pubic area, the next day three large bumps appeared, they were not in clusters but spaced out between each other, one in the upper area of my mons pubis and two on the right side of the lip of my vagina. They felt hard and swollen, a little painful and itched slightly although not constantly.
I'm 19 years old and I have had dead skin flakes in the pubic area above my clitoris and it never stops peeling and always comes back after i take a shower. Ive had this problem ever since i was about 14 years old and the older i get the worse it gets. Its started at small white dandruff looking flake and now it comes off in small tan patches. is there anything i can do to treat it, and is there a name for what it might be?
hi....i have itchiness on pubic areas plus it is very dry that it flakes like dandruff on the head. It bothers me a lot especially when itchiness attacked. i have only 1 partner he is my husband. Because i always scratch it soreness happen to follow and it is really not good. I tried to use canesten thinking that it might be fungal but the more it itch and discharge appears. what will i do with this....
That all stopped except in the pubic area. My husband and I separated 2 months ago and I began to worry about STDs even though I have no evidence that he has cheated on me. Other than the itch, there is no other symptom. Glad to know I am not alone but would still like a cure. Have had cultures and everything looks fine. Just wish this would go away as it did in other areas.
It was only from the past 2 months that the intensity of hair loss has increased and I am loosing 50-60 hairs per day and now I can see density of my hair decreasing fastly( only the frontal area). I also started loosing hair from eyebrows and pubic area every time I take shower. Every time I pass my hand through my head, I get atleast 1-4 hairs. Even dandruff is not leaving although I stay very clean and take regular shower even in winters. Note- head hair loss only on the frontal part.
I am an 18 year old asian girl with a fairly good diet- I am 45 kgs and 5 ft 5" tall. I used to have silky straight hair but since 4th grade I've had a bad case of dandruff (my skin is acne prone too). My hair type changed from super silky to voluminous and frizzy ( I have a thick head of hair). I've lived with this for alot of years now and I can control my acne, but recently (almost 2 years ago) my hair started changing in texture.
Sexually active for almost 1 year but not facing any problem. I have itch around my pubic hair (left side) area few months ago. It comes and goes so I don't really care about it. When the itch approach I can't control myself sometimes and i scratched it. Then I can notice white dandruff/ flakes around the area. Sometimes there will be 1/2 pimples there. Recently I realize that the itch area has widen to the right side. Last month i started to feel there is a tingling and pain in my vaginal.
the dark spots have gotten better under my arms, but not in my pubic area... anyway, i wanted to post this on here since many of us with the dark spots also may have PCOS, and after years of medications i finally found something that works. maybe it'll work for you too? when you get the weight under control, the other symptoms get better too...
2007 developed intense itch in anal area. Showering and BM aggravates it. GP referred me to dermatologist. Dermatologist says it's nonspecific dermatitis, prescribes desonide ointment to reduce flare up and to use aquafor on regular basis to keep skin moist. Says I may have to live with it, but isn't communicable. 2008 spreads to pubic region. Given same diagnosis. (Why did it spread?) Aquafor never helps long term, desonide helps after 10 days or so to calm down the region.
It stayed and what was left was small red dots on my inner thighs and above the penis in the pubic hair region. There is a small paper cut like area in between where my scrotum and thigh meet about an inch long that burns once in a while when agitated. The area between the two is slightly reddish also. They aren't raised but do itch here and there, mainly the anus will randomly itch here and there, not nearly as during the peak of it all.
like moderate pitting of the finger nails (this has been going on for the past 3 months), weaking of fingernails along with peeling of nails and itching of the pubic area - past 2 weeks(without any signs of pubic lice - but when i scratch the 'root' of the hairs have these small while things - almost like some sort of internal moist dandruff...the skin is fine though).
By the 15th, things seemed to be receding, and I got the worst case of dandruff in the area of my pubic hair. On the 16th I went to planned parenthood and a nurse practioner looked at this and said that she didn't know what it was but that she didn't think it was herpes. She then began to describe "classic" herpes symptoms. I didn't have the presence of mind to demand that she take a culture from the things that were there.
Through out the day u can look at my eyebrows and see micro grain of rice lookig things, as well as in my pubic area, hair, eye lashes. Now the kicker is I have started to get TERRIBLE acne! and i can pop a pimple and a nymph-like worm comes out about the size of a louse...this is so sick i cant even believe i am typing this! But my mother has me REALLY thinking i am dillusional now, and i am affraid to go to the doctor!
I'm a 30yo male and I have a weird blotchy red rash on my forearms, around my pubic and navel area and between my legs in the groin area. It started off on my forearms and has now spread to the other areas mentioned. It seems to be more prominent when my body is hot during the summer period. They are small red blotchy circular patches that are non itchy. Doctor's have told me to wash the area with a soap that treats Dermatitis, Tinea and Dandruff which hasn't been successful.
In the past ( about 3 years ago) I have shaved my pubic area pretty often. Upon doing that I noticed that I began to develop small pimples, that were filled with clear fluid . They were not pain full, and they would go away on their own. The only problem is they would leave dark mark on my skin. I went to my doctor and she diagnosed me with folliculitis and basically told me to do little to no shaving and also to change my blades every time I shaved.
My mother mentioned watching a program where they described my condition as a fungus. Is this the case and what can I do til I see a dermatologist? The itching in my pubic area is unbearable when it flares up and I am sick of having dandruff like flakes on my clothes from the broken scales. I tried T-gel on my scalp and it made that itch horribly as well. The second issue is much less pressing. I seem to have lost nearly all of the pigment in my skin over the course of 10 years or so.
Now I am 26 my head, beard, chest, and even pubic area are gray. I have always had dandruff and have seen many doctors and have had extensive bloodwork done with no success. My skin does not tolerate shampoo or any topical medication that I have been given by doctors so now I do not use any. I was orphaned at birth so i do not know if my situation is hereditary.
Okay.. one more thing. The sore is healing but i did notice that there are pubic hairs that have grown through it. Is that typical of a herpes sore to have hair grow though it?
The doctor told me that I was clear and it was probably just in my head. He recomended using some Bisocreen wash/protective cream for my genital area. I then went to another clinic where they took blood,urine&swap a couple of days ago. I get these results on Sunday and have an appointment to see the urologist then. It has now been 2 weeks and the tingling and sometimes a slightly burning/itching on my inner things/testicles is still there. I haven't been sleeping/eating properly.

To use the solution or gel on your scalp, part your hair, apply a small amount of the medicine on the affected area, and rub it in gently. Protect the area from washing and rubbing until the solution or gel dries. You may wash your hair as usual but not right after applying the medicine.

The itching and burning spread all over my penis and to an area in my pubic hair maybe an inch above the bottom of the shaft of my penis. This concerned me that I may have crabs or scabies, so I read up on them online and on Saturday, 8 days after the flare up, I did an application of Permethrin lotion 1% and got almost immediate relief. After a couple of days things seemed back to normal.
about 4 on the left and a larger area (about 2 in. in diameter) on the right. Since then they have not itched and are not painful. they were raised slightly but did not have any pus or fluid in them. they redden after a shower but in the morning are less pronounced. the right side has begun to heal...no longer bumps but still red patches (again esp. after a shower). no new ones have shown up. however, it's been a month and am worried...taking a long time to heal.
I resort to pullign the hairs out in the local area and using alcahol to clean the area. as I have had this turn into a infection and have had to have it burned out. I feel for the hairs on the back of my head that hurt and yank them. My problem is that I never have this when i'm able to go to a doctor. It moces around my head and is always onthe back so it is hard to see. any one I ask thinks I"m crazy.
Well, so far it's ended up having quite a parameter. It's in my front pubic area? And up my stomach a little, below my belly button, and then into the creases under my stomach. It goes down my thighs about half way, and then up my butt crack and under the folds? of my butt? I'm not super large, but I hope that makes sense. But now on the right side it seems to be all cleared up except a little in my inner thigh, but the left side is still there. It still itches but not as horribly.
Hi, My daughter was just diagnosed with trichotillomania. an impulse disorder in which she pulls her hair out. In my research, skin picking is in the same catagory. The treatment for this type of disorder is therapy and medications such as Zoloft and Klonopin. These disorders are closely related to OCD. Good luck to you.
1) I noticed in the last few months I get dry skin in my hair (not like dandruff) but rather big clumps, do you get this? 2) Do you use fake tan? 3) Do you have a poor posture (i.e shoulders slumped forward, back hurts fairly often?) 4) Does everyone with this problem here have problems with feeling lethargic, lacking energy (nothing to do with fitness levels or amount of sleep) Hope to nail this one on the head because no doctors seem to know.. why?
My gyn is more than happy to give me a script for the cream if I need it. If you live in Arizona in the Phoenix area the specialist's name is Dr. Rebecca Lavy. She is great!!!
