Comment from: bee, Female (Patient) Published: January 03

The article is quite informative, thank you. I am having a little challenge, I just got treated for malaria and typhoid, I was on period during the treatment, and I am almost through with my drugs. For about 2 days now, I notice severe itching and pain in my vaginal area, and it is always hot and reddish with burning. The veins attached to my vaginal and pelvic area are swollen. I never changed sex partner, and only had sex before I was sick. I am in pain.

Since 4 months I notice itching on my penis head. And penis shaft has raises and scars. I notice sometime dryness and moisture on penis shaft. Since six months I am not in sexual relationship with my wife. I met a general doctor he gives me an ointment to apply but this is not effective. My problem remains same.
