Avatar n tn - as winter approaches, indoor home air becomes dry, tending to irritate skin that's dry (of skin oils), which can lead to progressively worsening itching. - regular application of skincare lotion right after bathing (while the skins' pores are still open) can greatly help restore natural skin oils, along with - avoiding hot baths/showers (stay with tepid water), and patting, not rubbing dry with a towel (helps avoid wiping off skin oils).
Avatar m tn The burning that you experienced suggests that the lotion that you used, as well as the hydrocortisone are getting past the surface/exterior skin surface and verify that you do have a friction burn, Healing of such areas takes time and until they are completely healed, such areas may be more vulnerable to repeat irritation. Lotion and moisturizers tend to also make the skin a bit more vulnerable to such irritation. Hope this helps.

Avatar m tn is 3 or 4 flat round circles that itch from time to time but dont sting and nothing oozes out but when i scratch them, skin seems to come off like it is dead skin or something and then sometimes if i scratch too much it will bleed a tiny bit. There is one on my upper thigh too and also on the right side there is only one under my testicles or very high thigh. Please help me figure out what it is.
Avatar m tn Sometimes sex or masturbation causes irritation on the skin. Don't have sex or masturbate for a week. if it keeps up consult a doctor.

Avatar m tn First off I have no reason to believe I have an STD be that as it may I have an irritation around the head of my penis and a burning sensation along the seam of my penis there seems to be a white spot looking like dead skin that hurts as well could it be a male yeast infection or what am I looking at I want to have sex again
Avatar n tn After the itch and dryness goes, you have to continue applying for at least another 2 weeks for the infection to be completely cured from the lower most layer of the skin. If this does not help then seborrhagic dermatitis (usually affects scalp), eczema and psoriasis will have to be ruled out. Such lesions cannot be diagnosed with 100% accuracy on net and you would need to consult a skin specialist. Treatment will depend on the cause. Take care!
Avatar n tn The affected area retains the skin wrinkles of the rest of the area, but the skin looks thin and there is a defined border with an irregular shape. It's more noticeable when I pull the skin. When I get an erection, the area looks raised, like a small flat bubble. Masturbation (with lotion) or sex tends to make the area slightly inflamed (although not like it was) and a deeper shade of red.
Avatar n tn i have developed skin irritation on my penis skin which actually itches a lot. could it be a sexual disease. masturbation maybe? i am sexually not active and have never been. 19 years of age.
Avatar n tn During that 4th time, even with condom on, I got this skin irritation on my penis during sex. Not the whole penis, (how do you call this part?) it’s on the base of the penis, the area on which the condom can’t cover. It’s itchy. So right after sex I took a shower and cleaned the affected part by soap & water. It has been one week after that encounter, and I still have the irritation. I don’t know what to do. What might have caused this skin irritation? Where did I get it?
Avatar n tn When I get stressed or anxious all of a sudden I feel severe irritation on my skin. I don't know if it is actually my skin or my nerves. It last for a few minutes until I'm calm completely. This is very painful, and I feel like I will go crazy when it happens. My skin doesn't seem to get red, and if I scratch it doesn't help, so I don't know what is going on. Please Help!!!!
Avatar m tn Hello, You are right in thinking that it can be due to chafing or friction rub. Chafing is a skin irritation caused by repeated rubbing.It is very common in athletes, while walking, obese and people having sensitive skin.To prevent chafing, apply a lubricant like petroleum jelly to your thighs and wear clothing that serves as a barrier between layers of skin (athletic tights or cycling shorts).
Avatar f tn Over the past few days, I have started to experience an unusual skin irritation. It doesn't occur all the time, but mostly occurs when my shirt rubs against my abdomen, which causes a painful sensation. There is no visible sign of any rash, rednesss, etc. I use the same detergents to wash my clothes that I always have, and have made no changes to personal hygiene products, like deodorants or soaps, so I can't see it being an kind of allergic reaction.
Avatar f tn I went and saw the dermatologist yesterday and she advised me to use Dermatop twice a day and that it was a skin irritation. Now my question, since I have started to use Dermatop my skin has become itchy and the redness has increased... is this normal? Does dermatop work this way and if so, how long till I see results? Thank you very much.
