hello Dr, I have been suffering from itching since more than a month. Had gone for a vacation in India and I suspect bitten by a bed bug. No one else in our group is effected its only me. Tried with lot of doctors (GP & Dermatologists) but in vain. Can you please suggest a home remedy as I live in Bahrain and without doctors prescription will not be able to buy any medication .

I stayed at three hotels I noticed bites days later. I was told they were bedbug bites but when I checked my bed room I didn t see anything. I did not continue to have new bites either. However, I have stayed in a hotel again and the same bites are aroused and itching do you know what it could be? Could I be allergic to my sex partner? The welts are only on my arms and wrist.

About a week a a few days ago I had unprotected sex with my girl who has been very faithful. 2 or 3 weeks before I ve had unprotected sex with 2 others but both of them were and still are clean. About a week ago I noticed a red bump on the bottom right of the base of my penis. Almost on my scrotum but still on my penis, kind of weird feelings started to begin in my scrotym but it s not too noticeable. Days later other bumps and lesions started around my genital area so I went to urgent care. The doctor said it didn t look like herpes or an std and said it was pimple and prescribed me doxy and zinc oxide. The creams been working and the bumps are starting to diss appear a little the past couple of days but I still have scares. The day after the doctor a cold sore formed on my lip. I ve had cold sores before so I thought maybe bacteria from down there just spread to my lip and created one. My girl started getting itchy bumps on the back of her legs the day after we had sex but none of them in or on her vagina and none of them itched up there she said. None of my bumps itched but they now feel a little weird but I think it s because there s healing. When we had sex it was for about an hour and a half and was really sweaty which can cause a rash and other things. No pain when I pee and no muscle aches really.What could this be?
