If you are embarassed go to a male dermatologist. I thought I just had psoriasis and all he did was look at my hands and feet and my skin and he knew. Now I have just started going to a rheumatologist and found out that there are also blood tests and x-rays that can help diagnose. Please give yourself a break and go get some magic ointment from a dermatologist. I have it in my belly button and it drives me nuts!!
And as to embarassment, well.... it isn't anything that they haven't seen before now is it? It will be so worth it to stop the itching and pain. Good Luck!
Google psoriatic arthritis
and I bet you'll see something that looks like your stuff.
