I have crusty sort of stuff in my pubic region only in small areas. It almost looks like its because of dry skin. I think i have dry skin which then gets very moist and forms a crust. I dont know what it is but its also on the side of my leg also. This isnt an std is it?

  • Could be herpes; it likes to go down your inner thighs and in your public area. Ask for a blood test for herpes 2.

  • Try using an organic soap and shampoo. Some soaps have preservatives which cause eczema (eg. Johnsons & Johnson baby products have Q-15 which causes eczema)My friend always had dry scale-ly skin only in certain places on his legs & mostly during the winter. A good brand of all-natural organic bar soap and shampoo made it go away.. You might also need to do your laundry with organic soap and rinse it twice. The warm moist ares of your body might be reacting with the residue left from Tide or store bought stuff. Try these things first...give it a week or so. This will be cheaper than a blood test...if it doesn't work..you can should go to the doctor and let him do a culture on the crusty stuff.

  • You need to make sure to get a herpes 2 blood test since you have symptoms of it, just to rule it out. Yes, it could be toilet seat syndrome, but a person needs to know so they don't pass it around.

  • Could also be yeast or fungal infections. They cause a crusty like skin. Fungal there would be a definitive discoloration on your skin. It gets warm, red and itches. Yeast infection is also itchy but not as reddened and doesn't have the definitive discoloration of the skin.It's best to see a doctor for a diagnosis because treating it with the wrong medication can prolong your misery.
