Itching in private parts. Should I see a doctor?

I see this kind of thing for the first time in my life. I ve never encountered with any serious infections or STD s, except maybe a small yeast infection last year. I haven t been sexually active for 9 months, had only one sexual partner, i don t think its sexually transmitted or something. The place started itching really bad i don t know why i had a shower today, i have a good personal hygiene . It might be from the hot weather too i think or tight clothes, i wore tight jeans today i think, but not too tight, It was itching uncontrollably so i had the urge and i think i might have inflamed the place just itching myself, or probably had an infection and i made it worst maybe itching it. I don f know whether i should be worried i think i am going to wait for today maybe tomorrow see if it goes away, i ll see a doctor if it doesn t, I know i don t have to touch it and i ll try not move too much too, see what happens. Any other suggestions for how i get rid of this thing its really weird.

Dear sanjeto. Going by your history, gender is difficult to ascertain. Itching in the genitals can be different in the males & females. However, assuming you are female (more from the clue words highlighted on this HCM portal), & that itch started only 1 day or so ago (at time of reporting this), it is more likely to be a localised issue..by that i mean an insect bite reaction (very possible & brings to mind the term 'ants in your pants' if you did not dust your clothes after getn them off the line) or an irritant contact dermatitis to some new underwear/soap/towel etc; tight jeans may have aggravated & one cannot rule out stress...(the genitals are often the focus in stress related issues). Please try & use a topical steroid-antibiotic-antifungal mixed bag cream twice daily for two days & wear loose cotton clothing & avoid use of undergarments at home or as much possible. If in 48 hrs, it still persists, then go see your dermatologist. Cheers & hope this helps you...Dr Praveen Rodrigues MD Dermatologist, Richmond town/Shivajinagar, Bangalore.

Hi Doctor, A couple of months ago I had poor hygiene and I realize that it was a decent size pimple on my private area. Ever since, I gotten my hygiene together but it seems to still not go away. One thing I also realize is when I m in the shower it shrinks but shortly after it goes back to the size it was. Also when I try to bust it , white/clear liquid comes out but not too long before blood comes out as well and the liquid has a smell. It s really embarrassing and I need your help on what I should do or what you recommend . Thanks in Advance.

I am 62 years of age. Six feet one inch and 168 pounds. I am married and have been for 35 years. The marriage is very affectionate but largely sexless. I am unable to maintain an erection with my wife. Two years ago, much to my regret, I got into another relationship that ended 6 months ago. We never had penetrative sex, she gave me oral sex. I half entered her just once, and then for a couple of minutes only before discontinuing. I have been checked out for 'standard' STIs - chlamydia, gonnorrhea, syphilis, HIV, and shown clear. This was after I started to worry about having contracted something. I had some urinary difficulties that my GP felt were probably a UTI, and I was treated with Cipro. The current difficulty is that I started to focus on my penile area when I first began to sorry about it. Since then, I have noticed an almost constant tingling/burning in my penis (this has been over a period of probably 6-8 weeks. It seems to affect the end of the penis and the underside. There are no lesions.sores to be seen. It seems not to be there when I wake up, but worsens as the day goes on. I also seem to feel a tingling in the sole of my left foot. I suspect if may be psychosomatic, as it seemed to coincide with me first worrying about an STI. It also seems to be absent when I am distracted. My concern is whether there could be a clinical reason
