    Go to the ER at a local hospital. You don't need money to be seen there. Be a stand up guy and stop having sex til you go. At least let your partner know so they can make an informed decision. Get it looked at!

  • Your symptoms sound a lot like what my boyfriend had. He only itched at night and it was on his buttocks and the back of his legs and inner thigh. It turned out to be a scabies infection.

    Elimite was prescribed 1st and then Lindane since the infection was so severe.. I don't think it was sexually transmitted though... If not then it could be herpes. In which case you'll have to see a doctor (sorry) Hope this helps and Good Luck!

    Permethrin cream 5% (Elimite), a standard first treatment for scabies. It usually cures scabies infestation after the first application.

    Lindane 1% (Kwell), which must be used exactly as directed to avoid dangerous side effects. Lindane is only used if your scabies persists after trying other medications or you are unable to use other treatments.

    I would imagine its just a heat rash from working in the yard. Just try to keep it clean and dry. Change underwear a couple times a day just to make sure the area isn't damp. You can also try anti-itch cream or powders. Probably worth telling your parents so they can go to the drugstore with you to pick up some. If you're even a little bit less than skinny, you can get this in humid weather or when exercising. It's called chub rub.

    There are two types of herpes simplex virus: HSV-1 and HSV-2. Both virus types can cause sores around the mouth (herpes labialis) and on the genitals (genital herpes). Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV).

    Cold sores sometimes called fever blisters, are groups of small blisters on the lip and around the mouth. The skin around the blisters is often red, swollen, and sore. The blisters may break open, leak a clear fluid, and then scab over after a few days. They usually heal in several days to 2 weeks.

    The herpes simplex virus usually enters the body through a break in the skin around or inside the mouth. It is usually spread when a person touches a cold sore or touches infected fluid—such as from sharing eating utensils or razors, kissing an infected person, or touching that person's saliva. A parent who has a cold sore often spreads the infection to his or her child in this way. Cold sores can also be spread to other areas of the body.

    Luckly there is a cure for herpes

    Go to the student health center, they will check it out. And find that partner to see it they are suffering from the same symptoms, or they may be unrelated. Cold will help with the itching a little bit, until you can get checked out.
