Itching after sex

I am a 27 year old married man with three children. Recently, my wife complained that anytime we have fun, she will be scratching her private part. I also have the same feeling when cleaning up after sex with her. I even have some pimples on my penis. What can be the cause of this problem and how do we handle it?

You did not indicate whether or not the itching comes after the use of a condom since some condoms usually cause allergy to their users. If condoms are not involved, then the likely cause of your problem will be a fungal infection. This can be confirmed by subjecting a vaginal swab from your wife to a detailed Laboratory investigation. Once the diagnosis has been confirmed, adequate treatment for both of you will clear the infection.
