    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?

    Assume you're a woman?

    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.
