I have recently found flaking on my genitalia and this site told me it was neurodermatitis, but can I really get it on my privates? I’m a female (if that makes any difference in your answer) and am concerned if this is something I should be worried about or that it’s just dandruff and should not worry about it. I’m young and of course I’m embarrassed about it, so I’d like to avoid attracting attention to myself if it’s truly nothing to worry about. Please, if you’ve had a similar problem and know what it is or if you know what I’m talking about then please help a confused teen! If you need them below I’ve listed my symptoms:
•Itching
•Flaking
•Red irritated area where flaking occurs
Now, what I’ve listed are, of course, all the symptoms of dandruff and are only about as serious as such, but I am still concerned since I got it on my genitalia, so please, please help me out!
Thanks so much!!!

  • You should go see a dermatologist to get a actual diagnosis. I have about the same thing you have. I'm going to see a dermatologist. I've tried a lot of over the counter stuff and they only temporarily help. I need permanent help!
