    My vagina is blueish. I didn't even notice it until I took a picture with flash on to see if everything looked okay down there and that is when I saw the blue and when I just look down there I can't see the blue as far as I can see down anyway. But there is some blue in the picture. Not bad, everything is pink as should be but I have noticed that it has a blue tint to it on the clit parts that hang down and I'm worried. I'm a teenager and I've had sex probably ten times total and have used protection EVERY time except once and that was almost two years ago. I haven't had sex in nine months. Kind of worried about this slight blueness. Just wondering if I'm the only one and Is it normal?

    To be honest I'd imagine it is just the flash. Try taking the pic again but under a good light and with the camera flash turned off.

    I have some tiny red blotches and the head of my penis, I did have unprotected sex 3 days ago and appeared 2 days after, these are not painful, irritant and have no affects what so ever, just some tiny red blotches, could you advise what this could be and any treatment? thanks

    For the last few weeks I have been experiencing an itch all over my body. It is intermittent and comes and goes frequently throughout the day, however, in this last week I have developed two red blotches on my upper thigh which are extremely itchy and painful at times. I thought nothing of it but now the blotches have grown in size and shape and have a slightly raised appearance. I stuggle to find enough time to visit a GP with my busy schedule and would appreciate any help.

    It is normal and typical of many women. You have nothing to worry about (well you probably do, but the shape of your vulva (the vagina is inside and one can't easily see it) is not one of them).

    I'm 31 yr old male & i think i have psyriosis itlooks like it & i'm allways stressed out with it as i've had it now since i was 19 years old. In the summer i have to cover my legs up as i'm soo ashamed of the way my legs look. I have 2 large red blotches on my face(under my eyes along the side of my nose)I wake up in the mornings & my skin is flakey & its really red everybody looks at me as if i'm a freak! but i also have it all over my legs & i do get it on my bum cheeks. This has affected my confidence within the last few years so i kep my legs totally covered up & it's a night mare in the summer as i wear jeans to keep covered but sweat like hell as its too hot but i drive a ice cream van so theres no way i can let people see them as they are so cruel. i've put cream on my face in the morning to try & reduce the look of the dry scaily skin on my face but some times it can take hours for the rednessto calm down & some times it will just stay red blotches on my face,what else can i do at my lowest point now!

    its just inflammation get some anti septic cream and see if that works if not go and get some medical advice

    go see your GP you might need to have your foreskin removed if it is too tight. this could also be the cause of the blotches.

    Whilst I was checking myself today I noticed that I had black/purplish blotches on my vulva. I'm now worried....

    I'm certainly not a doctor but would guess possibly laundry detergent or a reaction to the material your underwear is made from. The head of your penis is extremely sensitive and either of these could cause redness.

    Thanks Roy! I've noticed today (27th may) that it seems clearer not as bad as it first was. So you could be right, also stopped washing with shower gel incase that was part of the problem

    Hi I'm 22 and have been in a relationship for 6 years. I have recently been experiencing some weird red blotches on my helmet. These seem to only appear after having sex. They are not itchy or irritating and I have not been getting any puss or discharge, however I am a little concerned as I've never had any problems in this area. After sex they can feel sensitive but not soar at all. Is this something I Should go to my local gum clinic and seek advice for? I have applied cream on these and it does seem to make them go away for a few days but as soon as I have intercourse they come back. They are only small red blotches and raise of the skin a little, and always seem to appear in the same place. Any ideas on how to treat this or even what it is?

    I am almost 15 years old now and from when i was about 9 years old my hands have been going a blue or purple colour when i am cold and red with orange blotches when i am warm. It also happens to my feet. They stay like that from 25 minutes to days on end, and they are always really cold, but i do try to keep them warm all the time, but it never works. And i have tryed all the suggestions made on this website, also it is very embarrasing for me because people at school always comment on the colour of my hands.could this be Raynaud's syndrome? if it is are there any other ways people know how to stop it?

    My daughters' hands and feet are mostly cold. They both appear blue and dull looking. In ration to this her lips are constantly blue, with the outer part being more blue than the rest of the lips. Her skin is pale too. I'm not sure whether this is this condition however would love it if someone could assess her. She is 15 in a few months, 5feet 5 inches and weighs 7 stone 4 pounds. Her periods also stopped 18 months ago for no apparent reason.

    I think your daughter might be aneroxic. bring her to a doctor asap.

    Seeing a doctor is a great idea! I too at young age had my period then it just went away. For a long time. It bothered me but I said nothing. I have had raynauds I am very sure since I was 10 but I only knew what it was since a year ago!! Bc I wouldn't speak up about it. I have had a long journey of good days bad days and it has its moments when it turns off. So far I have hone a year straight with symptoms daily but its not a bad thing bc I'm learning what helps what triggers and how to cope with it all. I have always been very athletic and I now coach sports. Please do take to see doctor every case is different in my case no periods lead to more health issues and it has been a hard journey. However choose to see every situation in a positive way!!! Hope this helps.

    I am 17 year old female and I have a blue mole (or atleast thats what I call it because I can't think of another word for it). I have had it for as long as I can remember and its on my wrist. My cousin thinks I may have been stabbed with an ink pen because that would explain why its blue. Should I be worried about this unidentified blue spot/mole on my wrist and if I left it alone would it cause me problems in the future? My doctor told me to just leave it alone as it causes no problems to me at the moment however my mum thinks it may become cancerous.

    I am 67 and my sperm has been most productive and effective all my life (6 offspring). But now amidst the normal greyish sperm there are stark white blotches - same texture - amongst my emissions. I had a cancer-free enlarged prostate (the size of a walnut according to the last urologist I visited 3 years ago) which gives the usual symptoms which have neither improved nor worsened since. I ejaculate 1 -2 times every day, with or without female assistance/encouragement. Are these white blotches symptoms of anything? Fred

    I've got several navy blue oval shapes on both labia minora, with what looks like navy blue bruising also,they can be sore and itchy but mostly sore& swollen, and have had both labia minora lips turn completely blue also. I have not been in a sexual situation for over 10 years, (cannot masturbate for the soreness to account for the 'bruising'colourisation) What does this blueness mean?

    Under my foreskin on my penis i have a blue lump that looks like vein. It is about 2cm long and 1cm wide and is about 0.5cm hight. Other smaller dark blue think veins go over it, can be seen clearly and It is soft to touch. Also I am 15 years old masturabate but have never had sex. Please let me know what this, Im worried

    Hi to all fellow eczema sufferers! I'm 32 and have had this condition since birth. Although the red blotches only tend to appear when I'm under stress, it still provides me with very dry, itchy skin on my arms, back and scalp! May I suggest a couple of treatments that I have been prescribed? Firstly, try Elocom cream for the blotches - as long as they're not broken or bleeding. Try Nizoral shampoo for the scalp, or Betnovate ointment for scalp. E45 can be fine if you wrap yourself in bandaging overnight, and for bathing or showering, try Cetraben bath emollient 85% - it can be used in the shower as well! Ask your GP for suitability though. I hope this proves helpful to some of you. Good luck!

    Hello :) I'm 16 and on my penis i have a tiny blue spot and it is next to a blue vein. It does not cause any pain or discomfort but i am worried what it is. I am thinking that it could just be one of the normal little white spots you get which has been filled with blood as it is next to the vein but i do not know! Thank you
