im 28 have been with my gf for 7 yrs quite often after sex usually 12hours i get an itchy penis with wat i think are thrush like symptoms and sometimes sore and itchy after masterbating with red spots on head. my other half sometimes.gets sore and itchy
This definitly sounds like thrush go to the doctors for some cream to rub into the effected area relief from the iching sensation will be almost instant, and ask your g/f to go to her docs for treatment as well hers will be a different treatment cream and suppositories. The pair of you must be treated at the same time other wise you will keep passing it to and thro.

I'm 20 and over the Past few weeks my left breast has been itchy like mad. There's no dry skin or anything it's just constantly itchy and i feel itchy under the skin too. I scratch it and I've made my skin bleed a very small amount. I sometimes get like a sudden sharp pain too. Any advice? I've tried over the counter creams but they don't help.
That's normal, it happens to a lot of girls around that part of the month. Don't scratch if you can help it, and if you can go bra less or wear a more comfortable bra then do that. If your worried, see a doctor. My doctor suggests ibuprofen, it calms your hormones or something,can't remember.
Is having itchy nipples a 'normal' part of breasts growing? This has been happening for a few years and I always just put it down to my breasts increasing in size. Now I'm 16 and I've realised that they only become itchy before I start my monthly 'flow'. It has gotten to the stage where I've scratched that much that they've bled and weeped at times.. I've heard that the itchy nipples might be a sign of breast cancer. Any ideas? Thanks
are you using soap on your breasts when you shower? if so, STOP! soap really dries out the sensitive skin on the nipples. Also, don't use creams, the montgomery glands take care of lubricating the nipples perfectly (if you don't strip off the natural oils with soaps) use soap on the rest of you, and just plain water on your breasts! :)
I have had an itchy foot for the past 3 years. It never stops itching but it is worse at night and in the morning. Often I will scratch it until it bleeds, and even then it continues to be itchy. I've been to the doctor who prescribed a mild steroid cream but it hasn't had any affect. At all. I'm beginning to think it could be madness. Has anyone else had anything similar? Specifically my foot is itchy on the sole, a couple of inches down from my big two (just at the end of the pad part of my foot).
My vagina is really itchy and ive had a split down there but its now healed i think i have thrush and have used canistan duo and the tablet that u can place up there but its still itchy and its sting during sex.
I'm 13. My vaginas has a exema type rash on the outside and it's really itchy and sore. I think it might be thrush but I'm not sure. If so how can I tell my mum because me and my mum don't have a strong relationship. It's itchy and embarrassing. Any help? X
if its obviously dry and scaly like eczema then its unlikely to be thrush - do you have the 'cottage cheese' discharge? or just the itching? i'd go and see a doctor - it may some form of dermatitis that'll be easily cleared up by some cream.
under my arms has been really itchy for a few weeks now, even when i shave they are itchy no matter what. what is wrong with me?
Ive always suffered with itchy legs, particularly when im going through a stressful time in my life. They also bruise easily. For the past 6 months my thighs have been so itchy and sore. Its keeping me awake now. I get little scabs all over my thighs and i sometimes get a strange rash under my arms or on my inner thighs but they arent itchy and usually go after about 2 days. I hadnt changed any products but i am now using non coloured or perfumed products and it hasnt helpes. Ive also tries anti histemines and steriod creams also been no help. Does anybody know what it might be?
