Patient

Symptoms:  Dryness, sometimes itching, pale yellow patch, discoloration
Doctor

A:   Hello, thanks for your health query on ATD.

These type of rashes with dryness & patch may be caused by intense friction during sex. My advice is to observe this & use Petroleum jelly twice a day. I think it will clear with no residue.

Good luck.
