    Anonymous please.

    Around my pubic area, like on the outer skin it's really dry and I get flakes like dandruff coming off it. It's also kinda red and sometimes the skin cracks and I get little red lines. I'm a virgin so it's not an STI. I'm thinking it's just dry skin? I'm not sure. What moisturiser can I use on it?

    Any skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema in the family?

    Do you let soaps get down there? (may be drying the skin out)

    My mum has eczema and I have psoriasis already but it doesn't really resemble that. I reallly do not want to go the doctors. Just wondering if there's any soothing lotions I can use first.

    Aqueous cream after showers is your best bet, a 500g tub from a pharmacy will cost around £1.

    The reason I ask about eczema and psoriasis is they are pretty common in genital areas. Aqueous cream would be a decent place to start for those too if things are mild.

    If things aren't clearing up, a trip to the GP would be a good idea. They'll be able to take a look which is reasonably important when it comes to this sort of thing.

    This stuff's the nuts. I had dandruff in my eyebrows once. This eliminated it like BP to the gulf marine life.
