If these hives do not itch"026if you are fair-skinned especially this can simply be heat-related. I used to get the same thing and was told by the dermatologist that it can possibly be because of heat combined with my own sweat. I now have to keep baby wipes with me and that is the only thing that I have found that helps. If I get overheated without sweating, it doesn't get as bad but if I sweat it looks like I'm going into anaphylaxis. The baby wipes for sensitive skin are the best for me and you may want to try that. If that doesn't help, I would seek out a dermatologist. Good luck to you!View Thread
First of all, you should never feel hesitant about asking your doctor about anything. As for the cleaning issue, getting rid of the hair will help with that. There is a chain of waxing establishments that has packages for men that are very reasonably priced and help eliminate problems with itching due to regrowth. Waxing places have trained professionals that deal with unwanted hair on both men and women and from personal experience help to make you feel very comfortable. If you are concerned about the cleanliness issue before you can take care of the hair issue, you may actually want to try a pH balanced cleanser for women. (I know it sounds weird, but I dated a guy that it really worked for). I hope this helps and wish you luck:)View Thread
I have displastic nevus syndrome with a history of melanoma. The question that I have is..I want to get a Marilyn Monroe (upper lip piercing) and I have a mole with no pigment and was wondering if it would be ok to pierce through it. I know that I cannot tattoo over moles but didn't know about a piercing. The mole is unnoticeable to others, but like most people I notice it and don't like it. I would like to cover it up and also want a piercing. It also happens to be in the perfect spot for this particular piercing.View Thread
