Hi
Vulval itching could be due to skin infection or even folliculitis.If you are sexually active its better that you see a doctor and rule out stds.You will need antibiotics cream if there is infection.

I m Mark! Age: 31 5:8 150 lbs. As a boy used to suffer from itchy-blisters all over my feet and uncommon sore throat irritations. These symptoms went away as I was growing up..., till recently came back all over my body now that I m 31. Was just wondering... I was recently diagnosed with hives on certain parts of my body such as fingers, arms, belly, back of my body etc... My dermatologist did a bio-lab test to find out what it was. It came back to be hives. So I guess I have had hives all of my life... Moving on... Now: Can hives spread to head of penis (cause blisters on that area) and or cause strep-throat? Are those two even related to the hives problem or is it something else such an STD infection? Yes, I m sexually active and I m very concerned about it... Note: My physician run blood tests on me to check for any STD infection and or HIV. Results come back negative all the time; but those little red spots/blisters on the head of my penis come and go back from time to time and the strep-throat problem does the same even after taking antibiotics. (AMOXICILLIN 875MG) Plz. I need a second opinion or advice... I would really appreciate your help. Anybody... Thanks Mark.

I tested positive for chlamydia a month ago and me and my partner got treated for it. I waited the full ten days as advice to do. I had unprotected sex 15 days after been treated and have not been retested yet I do have and appointment coming up in a week to be retested. I do have an ovarian cyst that thank god it got smaller on its own and its in the process of almost disappearing. I am TTC and I am only 21, other than that STD i am healthy to have a baby. my cycle is always between 34 and 35 days and it stays for 5 days, well i had unprotected sex one day after my fertile mucus stopped. i am supposed to get my period today, so now i am one day late and i have just been feeling wet all day long. i should tell you that two days ago i woke up in the middle of the night because i had to puke but never actually puked. I have been feeling a bit of pain in my ovary but very small as if i was about to start my period but no cramping. please help could i be pregnant? could the STD cause my period to be late?

I am a female - 52, with one boyfriend. We sat in his hot tub one night and afterward he tested it and the ph was way off. I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection and now, a week after my tests, I received a call from my doctor stating that I also have ureaplasma. I was tested for stds, etc. about a week after I met my boyfriend and all tests were negative. Is it possible I could have gotten ureaplasma from that hot tub?
