    I don't know if this is where I post my questions. I sure hope it is.

    Recently this week, my genital pubic hair area has been itching, red and white dry, like, skin is coming off.

    Recently, I have moved into a house and the water is not the greatest. It has minerals, iron and other items in it and I haven't been able to purchase salt for the filter I am wondering if this could be the problem and what can I do at the moment to relieve it. OR if it could be possibly something else.

    Given that your problem is restricted to only one area I would wonder whether you haven't caught pubic lice. Treat just as you would for head lice.
