Re: Scared it may be an STD?? HELP, PLEASE !!!

dont panic, this could be scabies, its not nice but many people get it. its just like head lice, very common and probably easier to catch. scabies can have the same symptoms as some std's, it seems to cause skin infections, in any area, even genitals. i know a few people that suffered this and were too embarrassed to see a doctor, the infection got worse and they did regret it. if you went to a chemist they could possibly diagnose it, or you could just try scabies treatment if you are worried about going to the doctor, it is just a cream that u rub in, u will know almost instantly as the itching will stop. it sounds very familiar though. dont worry and let me know if i am right, i am getting good at diagnosing symptoms. goodluck sweety and all the best in the future
