    If you have long hair, keep it off your forehead as much as possible AND DO NOT POP THEM! Wash your face twice daily, cut out all junk food and sugary drinks and drink plenty of water. Don't get stressed :) I used to have loads of spots on my face and body but, after a few months of switching up my diet and routine, I only have a few small bacne scars.

    There's a purple spot on the tip of my penis, me and my girlfriend had sex and my penis slipped out and she sat on it pretty hard, now it seems like a bruise and it's a little inflamed in that spot only, but it's been4 days and the spot still looks the same, and it doesn't hurt. Hoping it's nothing bad..

    Hey, I'm 22, and my tonsils have been inflamed for years, but I have no pain. I have noticed that they have vain like scars all over them and holes where I can squeeze pus out of, (gross I know) I spoke to a doctor and she said it was normal to have the pus and doesn't sound like tonsillitis. I catch tonsillitis frequently, and doctors never suggested having them removed, but they are now scared and constantly inflamed. Should I be concerned?

    When my boyfriend was young he had an undescended testicle and had an operation to cure this. Since then his scar on his testicle has inflamed, it looks a little bit like a skin tag but is about 2cm in length and 2cm from the testicle. He won't go to the doctor's about this, but we're both worried it could be something other than an inflamed scar. Could this lead to health problems? or could this be something severe? Will this problem affect fertility?

    Hi my foreskin has inflamed with a slightly red colour and is sore to touch. I have small red dots on the inner side of the foreskin when I peel it back and on the tip of my penis. I don't have any discharge but it feels itchy now and again. I have had sexual intercourse with my gf a lot lately but we are both very hygienic. Any idea what it could be? Thanks

    I'm a 14 year old girl and I have had acne for 3 years and I hate it. I asked my parents if I could go to a dermatologist to get it checked out but they said it wasn't that bad and it'll go away eventually. They said the same thing when I was 11 and now it's gotten worse. I only get inflamed spots every so often but I still get them quite alot, they usually are there on my face for about 2-3 weeks and about 3 or 4 come on my face at a time. It looks like loads of pimples covering my face and most of them are white heads. There is not one bit of my face that is smooth and it looks constatly dirty even though my face is perfectly clean. I get so paranoid and I'm so self concious. I also have quite bad scarring from the inflamed spots that I have had. It's the kind of scarring where the spots that you have had leaves dark marks. Even when I don't pick a spot it still leaves me with scarring. I also have some on my back, my chest, my arms and my neck. I'm not worried about these though. My question is "How do get rid of my acne and acne scars?" and "How do I prevent more acne from coming on my face and anywhere else on my body?"

    When i was about that age I got a special topical Zinc treatment from my GP which significantly improved the skin on my face and neck. Although yours sounds a little worse than mine was, it might be worth just asking your GP for a topical gel/cream. (Maybe you are old enough to get an appointment without your parents?) No harm in trying! Another thing you could try is wearing a very light make up such as 'bare minerals' which boosted my confidence and also stopped me from constantly touching my face which was making things worse! I'm 22 now and still don't have perfect skin but it does get better with time, don't worry!

    I'm 15, and I've had an inflamed penis for as long as I can remember. And is seriously affecting my confidence so I NEED to get it sorted. Basically the head of my penis when flaccid is red and patchy, on erect, my foreskin causes discomfort when I retract it under the head. When it Is fully retracted, it stays under the head as my head is extremely inflamed. The head could be described as severely ugly as it is extremely purple, I think i have a form of balanitis, can someone please help?!

    John, there are many things that can lead to redness/ soreness on the glans of the penis. Balanitis is not necessarily as a result of sex nor is it a result of bad hygiene. It can be the result of prolonged use of antibiotics being taken for something completely unrelated to the penis because the antibiotics clear away the natural bacteria that cleans the penis thereby enabling the fungus to grow that causes balanitis. Do NOT make the mistake of washing with soap as it will make it worse. You could try using Canesten cream which is an over the counter (or internet) antifungal cream. Your mother may have some because many women use it for thrush. Stronger antifungal creams such as Nystatin require a prescription so you would need to see your GP or ring a Genitourinary clinic (GUC).

    Hey Jordan, I am a Nurse, emergency, just wanted to let you know that keeping your foreskin pulled back for a long period of time can be quite dangerous. Your penis might get inflamed preventing the foreskin from being place back over the head of the penis. If this were to happen you must seek medical care right away. You might end up losing your penis literally if inflammation is severe it can stop circulation to the head of the penis. Be careful and keep it covered

    See Doctor asp, it sounds like a condition I suffered from called Phimosis and is very,very common. it can sometimes be treated with creams but may require circumscision. Do not leave it as the white fluid may cause future problems. Good luck.

    Hi I'm 15 years old and I have a problem. The head of my penis is EXTREMELY sore to the touch and has occasionaly given me discomfort in urinating but it is especially difficult to wash under the foreskin as it is simply too painful, this makes me worried about embarrassing odours from my genatil area. I went to my GP about this problem and he said that part of my penis was inflamed. I don't know the name of the part of the penis but it is the thin strand of fleshy skin between the underside of the head of the penis and the body of the underside of the penis. My GP said that frequent erections would help stretch out the skin but so far nothing has changed. Please is there anything else I can do becaus I am afraid if I leave it to long it could get worse. Thank you.

    Hi, i suffer from thrush as i take the pill and my partner has now got a very red inflamed sore penis. we think it is thrush so we have both taken the pill and used the cream and have not had sex for a week. I have no symptoms, it was just him, and the redness has almost gone.. however we are scared that when all the symptoms go from his penis when we have sex again they might return. could you tell me if this will happen? is there anything else we can do and is there a certian amount of time you should not have sex for?

    I am 30 years old and have had small swollen inflamed areas appear on both my legs always below my knee on and off since the age of 18. My Doctor has diagnosed them as erythema nodosum, she has taken blood samples from me and said everything is normal. I have a large lump currently on my right leg, it is the biggest i've ever had and it has been 9 months now and still inflamed (the longest i've ever had one for). It is painful and I know it can be related to auto immune diseases. I would prefer to see a specialist who may be able to tell me more as the pain, discomfort and my leg is not nice to look at.

    I was told I had erythema nodosum 4 years ago - large red painful bumps on my legs. I stopped taking the pill and the bumps went gone down. But now I am left with the marks. They look exactly like bruses but are under the skin - I have tried everything to reduce these but nothing works... Any suggestions??

    Hi. I have had an ongoing problem with my penis. I am 24 and I masterbate alot. For the past year I had dry skin and scaly skin on my penis, i went to the docs and they said I may have had some kind of infection. After a few creams they gave and i applied to my penis i didnt see any results up until recently where the doctor gave me daktacort which is a steroid cream. I was told to use 3 times a day and wrap my penis around with tissue to avoid friction with my underwear. Now i hardly get the dry skin and I dont madterbate as much as i used to before. The problem I have now is that after I masterbate my penis turns red (as if its burnt skin, the skin looks it and feels burnt aswell)and I have inflamed/or wrinkly, i can actually stretch the skin. Also, i get cuts in the shaft of my penis...As i have mentioned before this has gone on for so long and is a worry for me. I am circumcised and have been for over 20 years and wash my parts daily. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks
