Good afternoon, I have been suffering from an itchy scrotum for about 5 months now and have gone to 3 doctors with no success on it. IT gets pretty red and gets pretty ithcy . I have used clotrimazole, ketanozole , terbinafine and many others cream on it , and while it seems to improve the solution at first the fungus gets resistant to it and I end up going to another specialist , tomorrow I am visiting a dermatologist. But this situtation has been on for so long I really feel depressed about it , it is affecting my every day life, I can not do sports and have gained weight it is really anoying and sad. I need some help , it just gets red, no rings, no fool odors or secretions...

I am using anti-fungal prescribed soaps, does not seem to help much. Drives you crazy how bad it itches, especially if it starts up in public and you cannot scratch it.

Have you been tested for diabetes? Only I noticed itchy genitals on a list of symptoms for the condition in my local chemist.

Hi
I have the same problem for about a year now and have now found the cure - for myself for that matter.

I use this lotion named - Papaya Lotion. I applied about 3 days ago and the itch is now gone.

This is easily gotten in supermarts... I am writing from asia so maybe you may not get the same product globally

Hope this helps

Cheers

Mysterious itchy balls problem comes from the inside. Either it's a male version of yeast infection (candida) and you need to use something to kill the yeast or you have high acidity in your blood. Candida, when it colonizes in your colon, bore holes in your colon walls and release undigested foods into your bloodstream, causing allergies and other things like itchy balls. You should eat foods/drink to make yourself more alkaline. Sugary foods increases acidity in your blood. Believe it or not, lemons make you more alkaline.

Seborrheic dermatitis commonly affects the scrotum. Anti-fungals will not be effective. Personally, I would avoid steroid creams even if recommended by a dermatologist. The following supplements were helpful for me: cod liver oil (1 tsp/day), Now brand aloe vera gel caps (3-6/day), Borage oil (1000-3000mg/day), probiotics, vitamin E (400iu/day), unsweetened yoghurt. Stopped all topical applications of over-the-counter products and tolerated the itch for several days before seeing improvement. Washed once a day with mild soap. I think getting direct sunlight somewhere on the body is also helpful. Note that the borage oil contains gamma linoleic acid (GLA), which is said to be helpful for a variety of skin conditions. One theory (gleaned from a Shi Kai website --search Shi Kai and borage oil) is that some people produce low levels of an enzyme that converts linoleic acid to gamma linoleic acid, and that GLA is used to create prostglandin, which helps the skin fight inflammation.

Even mild soap on the area may be irritating. Showering without using soap on the problematic skin area is worth trying. Allowing the skin's natural oils to increase may help to eliminate the itch and irritation. It's worth experimenting with.
