Hi, I'm in my early 40's & I'm going through

I'm in my early 40's & I'm going through the menopause.This last few years I've been experiencing different symptoms of it, some extremely embarrassing. Lately I've been itchy sensations all over my body. Inside & out (downstairs area) it began a few months ago and it was happening at all different times in when out & about. I've been reading up about it & it's called formacation, when your skin suddenly feels so itchy that you can't stop scratching. It's even caused me to bleed (in my back passage, where I've started with strange hair growth which is extremely horrible) please can you suggest something for me to take for this, as I'm desperate.
Thank you, Daniella.

Hi, I am a 48 year old pale complexioned man. I had clear skin in teens and twenties, but now have terrible acne problems in my 40s. I get black heads and deep swollen pimples, and even white scars that look like sub-terranian pimples, but just seem to be skin. I went to one dermatologist and she recommended a permanent low grade anti-biotic treatment, which I was not keen on, as there are good bacteria in my system, which I don t want to kill. However, I did try a 5% benzoil peroxide and anti-biotic cream, which helped, but I need to go back to her quarterly for refills, which is an expensive nuisance. Any thoughts?

Hi I m a 40 year old mother of 2 who has been battling hives/rash that started over 6 months ago. It first started in my inner thigh where I thought I was just allergic to my sanitary pad but it progressively gotten worse down my thighs, now my arm pit, upper/inner arm and forearm. I have been taking zyrtec but recently it has gotten so bad I read online that someone took Zantac for hives along with an antihistimine. H1 receptors (antihistamines treat H1 receptors) and H2 receptors (zantac treats H2 receptors). It has helped but I still sometime wake out of my sleep with the itch from hell on my arms and back. Once I start scratching, hives/red bumps appear I scratch. What should I do? In my 20 s, I had painful hives and took benedryl religiously and went to the doctor. The doc gave me meds and after taking them, never got another hive again until now....please help...any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also I have no idea what medicine he gave me 20 years ago that made them go away permanently!!!!

Hi Doctor, I live in London, had an incident on 9th June this year. I’d sex with a homeless girl and As I finished, I saw small slit on my penis head and little bit of blood. I kissed her as well. I got quite scared and went to private Clinic for PCR qualitative test for HIV1/2, HBV and HCV on 11th day. All came out to be negative. On 28th and 45th day tested for antigen/antibody - DUO which also were negative. After 3-4 weeks, I started feeling my body warm i.e. heat releasing from hands but temperature was not going beyond 36.6 degree Celsius. Also, my eye’s white turned red which optician said is due to chronic dry eye. Lymph nodes under the jaw. Eye rednes and under jaw lymph nodes are still there even after 6 months post to the incessant. I’ve gone through HIV blood tests post 3, 4 & 5 months and on 167th day ( almost 24 weeks ). These all cam out to be negative. Now, I’m worried that It could be HCV co infection which might have delayed the HIV seroconversion. Now it’s been 6th month post incident and I’m not sure which test can console me and conclude results. Should I go for HCV RNA and HIV RNA test to get solace?
