Between my thigh, my skin has become dark and it's kind of an allergy. If I rub on it, skin gets peeled off. Sometimes it burns in that part. A part of my testicles has got the same allergy. I have this for more than a year. Suggest me a way to cure it.

The best way to treat sunburn is skim milk compresses. Believe or not, this is actually an inexpensive effective method for pain relief. Thin hand towels or wash clothes soaked in skin milk are laid over the sunburned skin. The skim milk proteins form a protective film over the burned skin providing an artificial barrier protecting the burned skin.
Can scratching your head lead to hair loss? (And how to banish that nagging itch without scratching)
Can scratching your head lead to hair loss? (and how to banish that nagging itch without scratching)
Yes! scratching your head actually leads to hair loss so you should avoid doing it.
Scratching your head with your fingernails for as little as 90 minutes is enough to remove all your cuticular scale. A cuticular scale is a protective covering on every individual strand of hair. The loss of this covering leaves your hair shaft weak and damaged and hence leaves your hair susceptible to easy breakage and hair loss.
There are several ways you can deal with itchiness in your scalp that does not include scratching your head. These alternative ways will help ensure you don't suffer from any hair loss.
1. Instead of scratching, pat or rub the sensitive area with the flat of your fingers.
2. Having a dry scalp can also increase itchiness. It would bee a good idea to use natural oil on your hair before you wash it if that's the reason behind your itch.
3. Sensitivity to a new product may be causing a sudden itchiness in your scalp. So, if you have switched to a new shampoo, mousse or anything else, do try abstaining from applying it for a few days to see if the itchiness subsides.
4. When your scalp feels itchy, try and distract yourself. The more you think about how itchy your scalp is, the more it will itch.
While scratching your hair does lead to hair loss, the good news is your hair will grow back because the damage is not permanent. However, it is not advisable to keep scratching your head because you'll just lose more hair.
