Hi there,


I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to help you with your concerns.

Mysticdoc :

Did you have any unprotected sexual intercourse recently?

Mysticdoc :

Have you tried any medication yet?

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Not for 6 months or so
Mysticdoc :

ok

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : I bought cream today
Mysticdoc :

What type of cream?

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : hydrocortisone cream
Mysticdoc :

Please upload a picture here for better understanding if possible.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Can you tell me how I would do that ?
Mysticdoc :

it should be easy.

Mysticdoc :

there should be a 'clip' sign somewhere on your screen

Mysticdoc :

once you click on that, you will be able to attach the picture.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Cant seem to find that
Mysticdoc :

interesting.

Mysticdoc :

another option: use an image uploading site like:

Mysticdoc :

www.imageshack.us

Mysticdoc :

then you post the link of the picture here.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Where on the screen is tag located
Mysticdoc :

please try the above.

Mysticdoc :

If you still have problem, you can contact the customer service to help you out.

Mysticdoc :

They are very helpful.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : I'm a on a mobile device so it's not handy to do that
Mysticdoc :

hmm ok

Mysticdoc :

let me ask you few questions.

Mysticdoc :

are they painful at all?

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : No not painful just itchy
Mysticdoc :

ok

Mysticdoc :

now do they look red at the base?

Mysticdoc :

like, blisters on a red background?

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Yea it's red and a little swollen
JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Inflamed
Mysticdoc :

and the blisters --how big are they?

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : Quite small liked little pimples
Mysticdoc :

Do you see any black dots or zits on the pubic hair?

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : No a dont think so
Mysticdoc :

ok

Mysticdoc :

see, this can be just allergic reaction based on your description.

Mysticdoc :

Allergy to soap, detergent, metal ( belt) is common.

Mysticdoc :

However, there is also risk of genital herpes a differential.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : But it has been happening regularry over the last few months
Mysticdoc :

Hydrocortisone should help in most cases in case of allergic reaction.

Mysticdoc :

In case of genital herpes, you will need oral medication.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : I shaved my pubic hair ages ago and it's seems to be getting bad since then I was worried it would be herpes ?
Mysticdoc :

Sometimes, allergic rash may require stronger prescription strength steroid cream.

Mysticdoc :

Well-- that is a possibility as I suggested above.

Mysticdoc :

by testing it can be confirmed.

Mysticdoc :

Also pictures may be helpful for me to be more precise.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : I have took a picture wish I could load it up for you to see
Mysticdoc :

it is not difficulty.

Mysticdoc :

you can do it from a laptop or desktop.

JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : I'm on a iPhone just now
JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : What a should I do then
JACUSTOMER-259sf0d1- : ?
Mysticdoc :

I will wait till you are able to send the picture from a laptop or desktop.
