Hi Welcome to healthcare Magic

lesions on your body suggestive of folliculitis... you need to be clinically examined.. do not try to manipulate with hand , it will lead to secondary infections.. For topical application you can use Neomycin cream.. consult a dermatologist..

I don t know whether i ve come to the right place for advice but here s hoping. I ve been married for 17 years and my wife used to enjoy me masturbating her and giving her oral sex, The problem is that ever since the birth of our eldest child who is now 15 if i touch my wife in that area with anything other than my penis she comes out in painful boils. it sounds stupid i know but i feel that i m not giving my wife as much pleasure as i used to, i feel that i am on the receiving end of all the pleasure. Does this problem mean her body is lacking some mineral, is it psycological? Or is it my fault?

I have red inflamed spots all over my legs in almost every hair follicle. I have been told it is folliculitis but the ointment the Dr has given me has not done anything. I am wondering if it could be a fungal issue that an over the counter product like lotrimin may help. =-
