Some of the spots are quiet deep below the surface like the ones down the sides of my cheeks and forehead while others are pimples. I have flaky dry skin mainly above my cheeks and a rough nose. my skin is just dry and rough and rashy. Please help.

    Mine's a little diff, not diagnosed but just checking. (I've pretty bad anxiety issues by the way). My habit since around 5 is that I have to pick the skin on my lips. I cannot stand them dry or rough. Even to the point of bleeding, I have to peel the skin till my lips feel smooth. Usually, they'll end up bleeding and varying red shades. When I pick them, I cannot do or concentrate on anything else, not even reading or walking. It's a vicious cycle, because when I pick them, they heal into rough skin then i have the urge to pick and pick. I tend to do this more when stressed and sort of like the pain when the skin comes off. Is this considered ocd and what can be done? Thanks

    I recently had a sexual experience with a guy I didn't know all that well, we did not have sex, but we did have oral. It was quite rough, and I ended up with a few tears in my skin which i seem to get reasonably often. But a day later I noticed the swelling had gotten quite bad and that I had a few ingrown hairs (I wax)-but this has all been getting worse. There are now sores all over, and the swelling is worse, and it hasn't even been a week. I don't know what it is but it looks like pictures of herpes. I don't feel very sick, but I did have a bit of a cold before hand which I still have. could this all be a result of being too rough or is it likely that an STI presented this fast?

    I have the same problem! It's awful pain and I find it difficult to urinate because if any touches the skin it stings like hell! I've been to the gynecologist and he said there was no sign of herpes, it was just pretty sore and swollen down there. It's been 3 maybe 4 days and the swelling has gone down but there is still a very painful sore which to me looks like a cut from maybe a scratch. I'm worried about how long it may take to heal because due the pain I'm off work and I begin university tomorrow! If you could let me know how you're feeling now and how long it took for the problem to go away I would really appreciate it as I'm getting worried.

    Hi, i'm having problems with my feet sweating and causing them painful to walk on at times. For 10 years i've had a little problem with my toes rubbing together & gathering a hard skin between them but no pain. But in the last 2 years it's got much worse, it started with a little bit of rough skin on the ball of my feet then over 3-4 months has spread all over the pressure points of my feet.This can at times be raw and painful in the morning then eases off.It looks similar to when you've been in the bath a long time.But my feet are sweating to much & i feel this is the cause of it.They have also started to smell at times to. I wash them every night and sometime in the morning. I've tried athletes foot powder and suducrem every night.The doctor said to try surgical spirit to harden the skin but this did nothing.I've also tried a peg egg but this doesnt really remove alot of the rough skin, is there anything else i can try? I'm on my feet alot at work to which doesnt help.

    I have received oral sex about two days ago and my partner was a little rough and accidentally peeled a little of the skin off of my clitoris. How long will it take for the skin to grow back?

    Ouch that must hurt.. Be careful that you dont keep aggravating it with toilet tissue, as this will make the process longer.. Try and patted the area dry and keep it dry and clean.. air ation may help to.. I am thinking like most wounds... is it a scraping of skin or a peice actually taken off..??? hoping its not the later, as it may not grow back.. Watch now you dont get any infections.. an may also be a good to lightly flush with fresh water after loo, so no acidic remnants are left on this fresh wound.. Fran, take care of your self, tell your partner, passionate is great, but handle the merchandise with care... ;)

    I have a few issues with my vagina. I have loads of loose skin inside my vagina, like right inside about an inch in. It's not painful or anything, just looks very strange. I also have a small white spot around that area, which is painful if I squeeze it but doesn't do anything else. Sex is normal, but if I put my fingers inside the walls of my vagina feel quite rough, lubricated but a rough texture. Also, by my clitoris is a small black mole-like spot, about half a centimetre circumference. Can anyone help me with these problems? If it was just one or two, it would be okay but all of this is really getting my confidence down, especially about sex.

    I'm 22 years old, have one child through vaginal birth. When my husband arrived we have a rough sex and insert some dildo on my vagina. After that I felt something wrong and it hurts...A month from now since we have that rough sex, yesterday I've notice when I went to the bathroom and wash mine, there's something pea-like size just below my vaginal opening. It only hurts when I put pressure on it. The color was just the color of my skin-tone, no vaginal discharge, no foul odor and no history of vaginal problems. I'm wondering what is this? I also tried massaging & having sitz bath, but nothings change! I went to the doctor this morning but they are all in holiday'vacation no check'up! Any answer would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Hello, I'm 27 and I'm concerned about a mole that has appeared on the under side of my breast. It almost feels rough and grainy (like a scab!) and is made up of dark brown speckles. Originally it didn't have any colour at all and was just a skin coloured rough area that I discovered on holiday in July, I have only just noticed it's new appearance. The other worry is that it is on top of a lump in my breast. However, I had a biopsy on the lump 5rs ago and was told it was not cancerous.

    I am 26 and have the same exact thing. I had the lump biopsies and was a benign fibroadenoma but I've been thinking I may need the scab like mile biopsied separately because it is still concerning to me. What was your outcome. This is the first time I have read a story so similar to mine!!!

    Hi I'm so glad to have found other people rhat have the same thing as me - I'm 27 and have just noticed a small raised new mole on the underside of my right breast - it's not defined and is a red/ brown color with black spots on (I'm not a moley person and don't have any others like this) I had a lump checked out in that exact area (still there almost on rib cage) but said it was fine. I'm a little freaked out can you please tell me if yous got it checked out and what it was? Many thanks

    Hi!i got the same problem as u,and believe me I was feeling exactly like you all my life,since 11-12.never had satisfying relationship,never felt confident or loved.now I am 27 and my skin looks worse than ever.my face has pimples from ingrown hair and gets more rough every year.i shave daily but feel that it's never smooth enough and gets rough in few hours after shave.i don't go out often,I am afraid of the daylight because ppl may see my face.lack of confidence and very low self esteem made me stay at home and put on weight,not having friends,and mostly not enjoying my life.i really need help but I am far too embarrassed to seek for some...

    Consider chemical peel for pigmentation - really helped me. If this does not help find a laser clinic that has the vbeam - these procedures will lighten the skin, if the skin is rough or pitted you may also want to consider dermaroller treatment as well

    i have some rough skin above my clitoris what is it i am 59

    friction maybe? go and see your doctor in case its some kind of infection.

    hi, i'm 17. i have no idea what i have! so i didn't know which condition to post this on...but just inside my virgina, i have this rough patch, like a wrinkly sort of grater, but not sharp of course. i have no idea what it is, but my boyfriend said he'd never felt it before on any other girl, but before i thought it was normal. i then thought maybe it happened when i lost my virginity. i used lube with my boyfriend a few times, but after a few uses, it felt as if my rough patch was tearing a little, so it started to burn when the penis was entering. it was such sharp pain that i had to stop having sex. but now iv stopped using the lube, it is ok again. i just want to know what this rough patch is...as i have no idea!! help!

    I would stop the rough sex. Pain is your body's signal that something is wrong. Maybe more foreplay so she is more aroused and reaches orgasm sooner after beginning intercourse would also help.

    Young man, rough sex isnt always good. Excessive rough sex predisposes you to injury to the penile shaft and then peyronie's disease sets in. Further, you dont need viagra or any sexual enhancement for sex. You are a very young man with lots of energy in you. Viagra use at your age will surely backfire sooner or later. To promote your stamina, exercise, lift some weights, do sit ups and push ups, eat aphrodisiacs like banana, blackberry, pomergranates, etc.
