Got it--thanks

Is that either sore or itchy?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
It's only sorre when I touch that spot. But not itchy at all. The only time I notice it in fact is when I go to the toilet otherwise nothing
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 16 days ago.

OK Daniel

Nothing too serious here

Not herpes or genital warts or any kind of STD

This looks like a kind of inflammatory eczema

No particular trigger for it

For now you can use over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for a week and that should take care of it

Please let me know if you need any more information
