I had a vasectomy about 2 months ago. Nothing other than normal complications. Two weeks ago my scrotum turned red and became itchy with bumps on it. The bumps and redness did not spread but the scrotum was itchy. The doctor gave me antibiotics since there was some infection still from the operation. The bumps have disappeared but the scrotum is still red on either side with what appears to be a couple small sores. If I don\\\\\\\'t apply the antifungal cream, it\\\\\\\'s itchy. There\\\\\\\'s no pain or swelling. It\\\\\\\'s just annoying to always have to use the cream. Any help is appreciated.

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

From the description it seems that you might have be having a fungal infection.

In such cases, though it is very uncomfortable, a prolonged treatment with antifungal creams is necessary to clear the infection.
