I have had a rash on my pubic area since I was 7 as of now I am 21. I have never had intercourse or engage in sexual activity. The rash doesn't flare up and hasn't produced any other symptoms. It consists of circular areas of dried red skin that peels and it never has really gone away. What could I have?

  • In winter, windy weather in combination with excessive indoor heating may dry off your skin. You can use protective moisturizing creams before exposure to cold or wind. Excessive washing of the face with hot water and aggressive soaps can also dry off your facial skin. The same is true for inappropriate makeup or alcohol based aftershave.Your face may itch due to an allergy to: Hair dyes (itchy scalp, front, eyelids, neck, and often marked facial swelling)Shampoos (itchy scalp and/or face)Makeup (itchy face)Food and medications (itchy lips, mouth, throat, and upper body)Head lice (itchy scalp, neck, shoulders, face)Pollens (itchy eyes and nose)Jewelry (itch and rash at the site of a contact with the skin)

  • I have had a rash on my pubic area since I was 7 as of now I am 21. I have never had intercourse or engage in sexual activity. The rash doesn't flare up and hasn't produced any other symptoms. It consists of circular areas of dried red skin that peels and it never has really gone away. What could I have? First of all, in 14 years have you visited a dermatologist or other doc for this problem? Is it ONLY in your pubic area? ARe you male or female? Is the rash itchy? Do you ever get a discharge? Does anyone in your family have a rash such as ezcema, psoriasis, or other skin condition? Google mulluscom contagiosum. And see a dermatologist if you haven't already. Best wishesDOM
