    Hi Nicholas. Thanks for your question. Typically men who have high levels of the hormone testosterone generally have quite a bit of body hair. Strangely enough, the same chemical responsible for hair growth on the body can also cause hair to thin on the top of the head. The reason for this is because (for reasons still unknown to science) the hairs on the top of the head are sensitive to a chemical called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) which is a form of testosterone. What happens next is that the hairs on the top of the head tend to go into the 'sleep' stage of their development, which means that the hair follicle will only produce thin, short, pale hairs. There are many treatments for this kind of hair thinning such as Rogaine, Procepia and Growthex. For example, Growthex works by putting the hair back in to the 'growth' phase so the hair follicle start producing thicker longer hairs.

    im 15 and male i have small bumps on the areas of the skin which come into contact with other skin this includes genitals, armpit, underneath of bottom lip etc the bumps are usually in large groups and dont cause any irritation they just look ugly and i feel very self concious about myself i was just wondering what this is and if it can be treated as i cant seem to find it on the website

    If you're a teenager then it's likely to be due to rapid hormone changes which cause skin to react in this way. It sounds like nothing yet don't be afraid to go and see your GP or drop into a GU clinic as they would have probably seen more cases of this than your GP.

    I have had very itchy nipples and a red rash which peels away when scratched leaving an oozing wound which can be sore. This has happened before but cleared up within a couple of weeks but this time it has lasted for over a month. Is this just skin irritation or something worse?

    Definitely go and see you GP. Any abnormality is worth getting checked out. Might just be your washing powder but definitely get it looked at! xxx

    I am uncircumcised male ,couple of years ago I used talc powder for masturbation and good amount went under skin of my penis. After a day I started irritation and itch around my penis skin. When I retracted my foreskin I could see some type of thick layer formed around my penis under skin. After few days I noticed white spots and since then it has grown to the point where half of my penis lost its pigmentation and it is white. This has triggered vitiligo in my entire body and I have white spots on my hand , face and feet , skin on my face burns. Please help , Please advise. I am anxious and it has affected my sex life because it makes my vitiligo symptoms worst (skin burning and white spots increasing)when I have passionate sex. I am in feeling extremely depressed because of this. Please help and advise , what should I do?

    I went to my ob gyn and explained to her that I have some skin irritation. I thought I had an alergic reaction to condons or because of sweating around my vaginal area the irritation was cause. I was prescribed a cream to help with the skin irritation. It worked for a while but as time passed I noticed that I began to experience pain with intercourse and some bleeding. I actually took a mirror to check the skin of my bottom and the skin was pink and very thin I could actually see the veins around my bottom. I am a black woman and have no other discoloration on my body. At the time the skin around my vagina and rectum is so thin the skin easily tears when I wash it or use tissue after using the restroom. Life has changed for me drastically, I must carry cleansing clothes with me at all times. Intercourse is a 50/50 change of tearing my skin. It actually feels like a paper cut from one end of my bottom to the other end. I wanted to know if there is skin surgery available for this problem. It have effected me emotionally and physically in my marriage.

    I have experienced similar symptoms and I'm mixed race so the tear is a very noticeable red! I've been to my GP a couple of times and they attribute the tearing to thrush (the discharge has cropped up a few times along with inflammation, itching and soreness). I have a few small tears on the vulva and even though the one on my perineum looks superficial (like a papercut) it's extremely painful. I've completed long term thrush treatments and been abstinent throughout and even used lube when I started being intimate with my boyfriend again however the tears re-open and the symptoms erupt all over again. I'm beginning to think the problem isn't thrush at all.

    Yes there is! I forgot the name but yeah lol I have a similar problem.

    Many methods for treating the skin/eczema can be reducing irritation. This can include not rubbing it with a towel, avoiding certain foods, or using biological washing powder. Try changing your detergent, soaps and anything moving on the skin that may cause irritation.

    I am 53 and since starting the menopause 2 years ago,have had irritation on my arms when i rub the skin i get a burning feeling, like as if i were putting vinegar on my skin.Also when the irritation stops i have rubbed so much there is a spotty rash which ends up like acne and can take months to go.These spots are covered on my bottom,my shoulders and the top of my arms, which i am very embarressed about, nothing seems to clear them.

    Hi, Ive recently had a problem of irritation on my penis. It is underneath the foreskin, just below the end bit, where the skin is really tender. Its red and it itches. I have never had unprotected sex. Im guessing its just some irritation and hope i could buy a cream that will clear it up?

    I have small modules around the testicles similar to skin tags but these cause intense irritation. Obviously, being 64 years of age, I have numerous other skin tags with the unsightly ones burnt off but any attempt to remove the modules has been unsuccessful. I am due to see a dermintalogist next Friday (12th) but the importance of this complaint is that also have MS plus Ischaemic Heart Disease. The intense irritation causes sleepless nights which only serves to exacerbate fatigue common with MS. Any advice?

    I have recently been suffering from soreness, irritation, and broken skin on my labia, which during wiping is really sore. My discharge is also pink/brown but I am not sure if this is because of the irritation. This happened about 2 weeks before my last period, and it has occurred again roughly two weeks before my period again.

    I also have labia that hang due to tearing during my first pregnancy and vulvular veins in my second. I am getting frequent yeast infections along with irritation and chafing during exercise and sex. My ob gyn recommended using desitin ointment after 2 diflucan pills and an antibiotic were unsuccessful in curing the irritation. Will I need to use desitin for the rest of my life?? Does anyone else experience irritation from this condition? Any remedies? Opinions on labiaplasty?

    I have had lichen sclerosis for years and have been treated at hospital with steroid creams which made the surrounding skin thin and eventually the vulva shrink. The irritation returned as soon as I stopped using the steroids and the irritation was dreadful. However, I think I have found an answer to this, using baby wipes twice a day morning and before reiring to bed has made a great difference. Sex is out of the question, I have been robbed of a normal married life. I hope the above helps.

    Helen i also get bad skin in the winter... its because the mixture of central heating and the cold air outside drys your skin out and can cause irritation so you need 2 change your moisturiser during the cold months to something thats sutible for your skin, its obvs quite sensitive like mine so try something like simple or amie products, e45 is also really gud, theres a product thats in a tube especially for itchy dry skin that really works for me xx

    Hi, yes it is normal. Yhe skin down there is very sensitive. Try having a bath first and soaking for a good while in the hot water first. When shaving try using fewer and longer strokes. Multiple, short strokes seem to increase the chance of irritation. Use a bit of non-perfume based oil afterwards to moisturise the area. You should find that you get less spots. Make sure you use a new, sharp razor each time or alternatively use an electric razor speciffically for the bikini line. I find that the elctric razor doesn't leave any irritation at all and you don't cut yourself either!

    Hi my name is Tracy, I have suffered with really bad acne and this resulted in dark pimentation on my cheeks and around my eyes. I have tried bleaching creams but they tend to aggrivate my skin, if used too much. Is there anything that can help them go away, without causing irritation to my sensitive skin

    I'm 17 and have dark skin under my bottom lip. It doesn't itch or irritate but it's darker than the rest of my face. It almost looks as though it's dirty but I wash my face three times a day. I did get dry itchy skin before around my chin but began to use eperderm which it a thick cream which made the flakeyness go and stopped the irritation. I really feel embarrassed of this dark skin under my lip. I have read that lemon juice n honey mixed together can lighten the skin but I'm still weary as it may make my skin worse. Please help me overcome this issue.

    Hi, about a year ago I discovered some lumps on my vagina, the doc said it was warts and prescribed me cream. Some days later I got severe blisters and the doc then said it was herpes. I was then medicated for that. The itchy/dryness and irritation has yet to go away. I am constantly visting the doctor with this problem. They told me it was BV after this and I was then medicated for that. I visited the sti clinic for a full screening. I was lucky that there happened to be a skin doc there also, she prescribed me a soap for the irritation in the vaginal area. It helped. Recently, over the past 3-4 months I have been getting raised lumps. My GP said it was warts again, and has frozen off several (all at different times, 2 week span almost, and I never get more than 1) ... Twice I have noticed a lump and due to a busy schedule I could not make it to the doctor asap and so I checked a day or two later and they were gone. Just the other day I noticed one in the hole area. My doctor froze it again. The irritation is becoming unbearable. I feel like no body knows exactly what my problem is. It is ruining my sex life to be frank, and my confidence more so. Please help :(

    Hi, I've been shaving my this area for a few years and I am currently 15. I used to shave the wrong way because I was unsure of how to do it properly so had bad irritation, ingrowing hairs, etc. I now shave correctly but am still quite prone to getting ingrowing hairs and irritation along the bikini line and on the pubic region and want to know how to stop this irritation so I can feel more comfortable with my body. I also had a very bad one which has now developed into a scar that has stretched from the pubic area across the top of my leg and am unsure to why or how this has occurred. Any help will be of great use.

    Cleaning under the foreskin is very important! Do it every day in the shower. Pull the foreskin back, rinse with water and was the head of the penis and the underside of the foreskin. I advise against using normal soap as it can cause irritation and drying of the sensitive skin. A pH neutral soap (like Dove) or pH neutral body wash (QV or sorbolene in Australia) can be used on the penis and whole body without causing drying and irritation. Also, trim the pubes. They can smell just like your armpits. If the smel is still a problem after regular washing for a few weeks then see your GP.

    You can probably treat this by avoiding anything that causes it, like irritation to the skin, a certain type of food, or changing your soap.

    I suffer from excess sweating under my arms which i find really embarrassing and really limits what i can wear. I have started to try special roll ons such as Driclor and PerspireX but both cause burning and irritation. PerspireX isnt as bad but still gives me a rash. Does anyone know of any other treatments that dont cause as much irritation but actually work?
