Eczema genital area

Common Questions and Answers about Eczema genital area


Avatar m tn I belive I have eczema in my genital area because I have it also on my chest. I've tried treating it with different types of lotions but lotions seem to make it worse. I tend to scrath the area because of the itchiness which then leads to breaking of the skin at the base of my penis. Never breaking of the skin anywhere else in the genital region, just at the crevase of the lower pubic area at the base of the penis.
Avatar n tn Dovonex is not exactly highly recommended for the genital area but it cleared mine right up. I have also got those painless type lesions that crust over and go away within 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn I have a 2 1/2 year old, she has had a rash in her genital area for six months now. I have seen the doctors several times and also seen a pediatric dermatologist. He diagnosed it as Eczema. The rash clears up with steroid and then comes back with in a week. My concern is the use of steroid. I am monitoring her diet but its very hard to pinpoint what is the trigger. I use an ointment to keep the area moisturized all the time. Please suggest what else i can do?
Avatar f tn The rashes are not serious and go away by their own after a while, except on certain spots. Recently I've noticed that after masturbating a lot I easily get this rash on my genital area, where the hair growth is. I've read that sweating can cause atopic dermatitis and I definately sweat alot while masturbating and also touch the area a lot. So, my question is that is it possible that the rash I have on my genital area is caused by my atopic skin and my self-pleasure activities?
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms the possibility of dermatitis skin, eczema, jock itch need to be ruled out. The feeling of ants crawling can be due to parasthesia also. Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated.
Avatar m tn Initially had itching/burning specifically on my feet and genital area. Since then, the problem seems to come and go. I'll have an episode that lasts for 2-4 weeks and then it completely goes away for a few months. Now again, I'm experiencing the same itch/burn and it seems to have sprung up b/c I used a new scented soap a few weeks back. Here the catch, it's ALWAYS an itch/burn on BOTH my feet and genital area at the same time.

Avatar n tn I do have a history of eczema but rarly on my penis or genital area, and I am concerned I have contracted an std. I make good money but my job does not provide insurance I am concerned that if I do have an std or go to a doctor that this is going to cost me lots of money. However I cannot take not going to a doctor as this is driving me crazy and I do not know what to do.
Avatar f tn When I do scratch they itch even more. They are located on both sides of my groin / vulva area at the same time. They are not in clusters but there is more than one on each side. Wondering if this may be herpes? Or another Std ? Or something else?
Avatar n tn For about 9 weeks now, I've had itching in the genital area off and on. (mostly in the scrotum area but also on the penis shaft) For almost every day (often more than once per day) of the 2 months, I have checked the area thoroughly and I have not noticed any visible rash (no red bumps) anywhere. The itch seems to occur in different areas of the scrotum (towards the base) but also all about - the itch will last about 5-10 seconds per itch point and then pause.
Avatar m tn I came across in the internet about Kaposi varicelliform eruption or eczema herpeticum which affects people with eczema(I know I should not be relying on the internet but it was one of those things I just read unknowingly and made me all worried) . I dont have such a problem and I know it is rare but my father actually works as an allergist and might be exposed to patients with eczema herpeticum when they come to find out about the allergies which is causing their eczema.
Avatar n tn I never recall having a cold sore or anything not did I ever develop a pimple or lesion in the genital area. The pinkish spot is still there after about year or so. There are days when it is barely there and possibly due to friction it might be more visible. When it is more visible, the skin is slightly raised and do not itch or hurt. The coloration stays pink.
Avatar n tn It is visable around the entire lower part of the head of my penis. There are also about 3 very small hard white or flesh colored bumps in one area but the rest of the rash is just red and tiny red bumps. When I have an erection the head of my penis gets very dry (at times small areas have actually flaked off) and sometimes is covered in tiny red bumps. While erect the rash becomes much more prominent.
Avatar n tn yeah. I used the xolegel and it worked decently on my face but not in the genital area. I have yet to try pramosone since it wasn't covered by my insurance and figured I would just wait to see if the other one worked first. Also because I read the pramoxine in it causes a loss of feeling in the skin, and that really doesn't sound too great for that area. Now I'm wondering if it is ok to use for 1. this "condition" that has yet to be actually diagnosed, and 2. for the genital area?
Avatar n tn Your skin could be irritated from friction or eczema. How bad is your eczema? I am 44 and just started having minor skin problems, but it bothers me allot. I can't imagine dealing with bad eczema.
Avatar m tn Hello, Eczema is a diagnosis which can be made by clinical examination. Sometimes, a biopsy of the skin may be taken in order to rule out other skin diseases that may be producing signs and symptoms similar to eczema. Sometimes a skin allergy test like patch test may be carried out in an attempt to identify the specific trigger of the condition. There are no specific tests to be done at home for confirming eczema. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn If you only h ave the eczema on one hand and have an active herpes lesion present, try to use the other hand for wiping and washing the genital area and area of the lesion. If you find it too hard to switch hands ( we do get used to doing certain things with certain ), you can always chose to wear gloves for washing and wiping to err on the side of caution but you already have a well established herpes infection so it's low risk of transmitting it to other body parts in general.
Avatar n tn I have had irritation on and off appearing on my upper thigh fold and on the genital area. It would usually become red and sometimes itch and have dry skins in that area. I shave my pubic region too which may add to the irritation, however this part was never really cocerning to me. This past week i just started playing hockey again, after my first game i noticed red patches along with dry skin around it in my upper thigh and fold. It didnt really itch or burn or anyhting.
Avatar n tn and as far as i know herpes come with some symptoms that are similar but dont match my condition like im yet to have a blister looking or puss like pimple or even remotely looking to that. in my genital area but yet i get tenderness in my genital area hotter than useale urin i wouldnt call it burning but just hot urin,muscle ahches but no fever or flu like symptoms so is it that i have herpes and eczema? or is it just one of the 2 causeing the issue ?
Avatar n tn There are some anti itch medications that don't cause drowsiness. What you have is probably eczema. All the chemicals used in the area contributed to it. I would just use thick coats of Vaseline just after shower. This will actually help. I have a similar problem. look up chronic red scrotum.
Avatar f tn You won't infect anyone with HSV unless that particular area (your genital area or mouth, wherever your herpes is) is intimately exposed to another person, i.e. sexual contact or intimate kissing. If you haven't been to your dermatolgist since you caught herpes, make an appointent soon to discuss all this. Best wishes and happy new year.
Avatar n tn The initial sore and the area around it now look similar to a picture of genital herpes that I've seen online. I suffer from eczema and have had small breakouts all over my body, including on my penis, the small blisters looked similar to my eczema breakouts I have on my fingers. During the time I discovered the initial sore and the subsequent blisters I've felt fine and have had no other medical issues. Is this genital herpes or am I letting myself get carried away with it self diagnosis?
Avatar n tn it also seems that showering or drying of the genital area seems to keep this at bay. a second question, could this affect my sex partners? if unprotected? what to do? though, i have had unprotected sex with a handful of people i knew very well at the time, i truly doubt that i have an STD. my skin has troubled me in one way or another my entire adolescent/adult life, but this is really the most concerning yet.
Avatar m tn When I was much younger, I had a history of very bad eczema, and have had it in my genital area. A while of Eucerin treatment cleared that up. (Also I never had sexual contact in middle school, so I know it can't be an STD.) So I have no idea if its fungal or eczema related, but I'd really like to know so I can get things looking normal again.
