going by Ayurveda i believe it is the outcome of vitiated pit in your body that is responsible for itching and redness, rightly explained above due to increased blood flow, many a times you feel this area as hot and this confirms pit imbalance. Haridra khand and allerin will restore pit to be normal and expell any causative factors responsible for itching. I believe you are not diabetic and there is no sign of scabies.Avoid spicy food.

Hi,thanks for query.Due to itching there is increase blood supply to the area and certain chemicals also accumulates at that spot,so your skin becomes red.First of all find the reason for itching and then take treatment accordingly.For graying of hair please look for reasons like vitamin deficiency,stress etc.Please ask for help from your doctor.

Homeopath Dr. Swati Ramkumar's  Response

Kindly clarify if the skin is red and itching or does it get red when you itch ? In the first case if there is some kind of eruption or redness on the skin, along with itching, the cause needs to be identified. It could be due to some kind of allergy, insect bite, use of certain cosmetics, cream, change of soap, or some times due to the use of synthetic clothes(especially in the hot summer months). Certain skin diseases also may present as redness with itching. A visit to your family doctor or a dermatologist (skin specialist) is advised.

In the meanwhile you may apply lactocalamine lotion for a soothing effect, wear cotton clothes, drink plenty of water and have fruits and leafy vegetables. Avoid any strong smelling lotion or cream as well.

But if the skin gets red on is a physiological and natural occurrence as due to the rubbing and friction, the blood supply increases to the affected part , causing the redness.

This is normal and does not require treatment.

You have not mentioned your age . Premature greying can occur due to heredity, stress, vitamin deficiency,etc.. Try and find out the reason in your case. A diet rich in vitamins and iron is important. Treatment depends on the cause.

I am a 21 year old. I have been suffering with wrinkles and rashes on glans for the past 1and a half year. I saw a physician who tested my sugar levels ( which came out to be normal). He then said that this might be due some allergy and recommended flutibact gel which i applied for about 3 months and allegra 120 which i had for about 2 months. Around 1 year back, this turned into a skin infection and the physician recommended Candid- b cream. I applied that for about 3 weeks and the infection was gone completely. But the wrinkles (Or rashes)are still there.earlier the rashes were confined to the bottom of the glans Only but now they cover the whole of the glans. I have never any pain, itching or any sort of uncomfortable feeling while urinating or otherwise. Currently the whole of the skin on the glans is loose and the only problem I face is while removing the foreskin which kind of gets stuck on the loose skin but still there is no pain. Please advise

A month ago I had surgery for an anal fissure. That surgery was successful. Unfortunately, I developed an abscess whee the doctor used numbing medication. The location is just outside the anus. The doctor, a colorectal surgeon, drained the abscess 2 days ago and inserted a drain tube. He said the abscess was about the diameter of a golf ball. However, he did not comment on the red swelling sensitive skin about 5 inches away from the abscess. The original abscess appears to be filling back up but not draining despite many sitz baths. I also did not get an antibiotic for what I believe is a skin infection in the outlying areas. Due to the back and forth visits trying to have this resolved, I am loosing confidence in him. I want to get a second opinion but don't know what type of doctor is best to see for an abscess. Any guidance is appreciated.
