Conditions with symptom: 'genital itching'
Hi i'm at my wits end. I have what i would call under skin almost nerve damage style itching in my genital area. I have confirmed HSV2. I've been to many clinics and many docs. I have had it confirmed that this specific symptom is occurring too regularly to be the HSV2. Mixed in is thrush like symptoms, but i also itch around my rectum and my urethra. I had this for 2 years now. I've had many blood tests and had an allergy patch test and nothing has popped up. I itch/throb 80% of the time and it moves around the genital area. I'm out of ideas and so are the doctors. Is it as simple as recurrent thrush??? I cant tell. Any ideas before this itching drives me crazy. Thanks

I have never had cold sores etc but after my period last month i started to experience what i thought was mild thrush. Last week the itching in my vagina got much worst so i took fluconazole & a pessary but it continued to get worst. In the meantime i developed a fever & flu symptoms but as my little boy also had a fever etc i assumed i had caught it fro him. The itching continued & my whole genital area then became very itchy. I gave my doctor a water sample & she claimed i had thrush which had probably spread to my anus & i was prescribed a course of 6 pessaries with another fluconazole tablet (higher dose) the itching then became very sore & it hurt to urinate due to some sores & blisters that i could feel & now see inside my vagina. After a few days this became much worst & i could not sit or even wipe the area. I ceased to have any bowel movements days ago due to the pain & also piles that had now developed. The blisters & sores were now in & around my anus & i developed painful boils and blisters & the top of my thighs under my bum checks. After being in so much pain i saw an out of hours doctor that suspected herpes & prescribed aciclovir tablets. I had sex with my long term partner of 10 years + on 14th dec & have been very susceptible to infections after sex since the birth of our son in 2010 & my partner is adamant he does not & has never had genital herpes. He gets cold sores but has not had one for a while. I am very distressed & confused and need some help & advice as to how i could of contracted this & indeed what i should now do. Please help

Hi, I seem to suffer with extreme itchiness when I've nicked or cut myself (shaving for example). i know itching usually means its healing but the itching is so intense i scratch until the whole surrounding area bleeds. the itching seems to spread further outwards from the original site. It becomes unbearable at times. I've had this problem on my legs, hands and very lower back. how can I ease the itching?
I've been having itching on the pelvic area and burning around my labia. I also have this bump that's a scab now. It didn't hurt it seemed like a pimple because when it popped pus and blood came out just like a pimple. I have white discharge with a slight smell to it. Idk if this is a yeast infection, genital warts or herpes. Does anyone else have these issues??
Hi. Im 15. I court Genital warts of an older man when i was only 14. But i just wanted to know if they are working on a cure for Genital warts where it can get out of your system for good! Because I have Genital warts im worried incase when im older and i find the right one, he wont want me because what iv got. I have a very low self esteme for the past year and Im really worried for my future.
its a virus so unless medicine progresses amazingly, you're stuck with it. good news is though that your body should clear the virus in a couple of years so you wont have it any more. in the mean time you might want to have a chat with your doctor about smear tests. i have the wart virus and im happily married so its totally possible to find someone awesome. its actually pretty benign as STIs go as long as you keep up to date on your smear tests.
hi in 15 to and there is a cream called somex and it is ment to be very good my friend used it and she said it workd very well and her warts havent come back and its been two years since she has had them i hope this was helpful
I was diagnosed with genital warts last year and have had them frozen off. I've only had 2 small warts but I am concerned about the connection between genital warts and cervical cancer. Am I in more risk of getting cervical cancer as I've had genital warts?
im a man with genital warts what can i do to get them removed
Go and have a smear test done. I had genital warts and when I had my smear test done I had cervical abnormalities. It DOES NOT mean you have cancer, just that there could be some inflammation. I didn't have cancer, and the treatment was simple and painless. In Wales you can have a smear test done from 20, in England it is 25.
For about a month I have had an itchy, stinging genital area (Im female). My friend said it might be thrush but as I have never had it before I am unsure. I went to the chemist and was given Pevaryl (Econazol. nitras) cream to use twice a day. It has not really made any difference. I have no discharge or any other symptoms just the stinging and itching which seem to get worse on the evening. Could it be thrush? Im using the cream for 4 more days, then will go to the doctor if nothing changes.
Hi, I'm 14, and I've had this constant itching in my ear for the past 6 months or so. It's on the inside and I end up itching my ear about 20-30 times a day just to try and relive it! It's driving me nuts! It's only in the right ear, but my left one produces really clear liquids wax, but doesn't itch. This itching of the right ear goes right down the side of my neck, from the ear, round the back of the jaw and then toward my tonsils and that general area. I don't want to go to the doctors cause its not really serious... My mum said it might be to do with the fact I'm growing but I've not had it for my whole life.... Please if anyone knows how to stop it it would be so greatly appreciated!! :)
how long does it take for genital warts to appear.. i broke up with my cheating boyfriend about three months ago an only just getting the signs of what might be genital warts... do i very to go to a gum clinic or can i just go docs to be checked?
I have psoriasis and I have it on my scalp, behind my ears, my forehead and my genital region. The area that concerns me the most is that it's on the genital region. I can't get intimate with guys as I hate the way it looks. I have had MANY treatments for it and nothing seems to work :/ . Please help.
i have psoriasis on all of the above and more, having suffered for over 20 years i think ive tried every treatment too. the treatment that worked best for me was a chinese herbalist but it didnt come cheap so had to discontinue for financial reasons. i saw him once a week for about 2 months, he gave me 2 different creams and bags of i dont know what exactly but herby things which i boiled in water strained and drank the juice, it didnt taste nice but a bit like liquorice. i saw my psoriasis disappearing rapidly in such a short time. i would go back in a breath if i could afford it, if only to see if he could have cured me.
