For as long as I can remember, I've had a constant itchy feeling around my scrotum. I generally passed it off as jock itch. But recently, I've noticed something peculiar about the itch-as I scratch it, it seems to travel around the scrotum, and sometimes the legs or any other surrounding skin, then move back to the scrotum and eventually subside. I'm just curious as to whether I have a normal case of jock itch, or some sort of parasite.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. I've tried treating for jock itch, to no avail, and if I were suffering from some sort of parasitic infection, I'm sure that would explain it.

Cure for Jock Itch
I had serious jock rash for over a year without any success in treatment from doctors prescribing powders and antibiotics. I got some relief from using tea tree oil but only relief form the itching. The rash just continued to get worse and started progressing into the anal area. In desperation I decided to try using everything I had in the medicine cabinet. I started out with Benadryl cream 2% and within a day I started getting relief. Within the week the itching stopped and the rash subsided. In 2 weeks it was completely gone. I use it as a precautionary treatment now (about once every 3 or 4 days or if I feel the slightest itching). You don't need to buy the brand name stuff just the grocery store anti-itching cream with the same ingredients. Also even if you don't have hemorrhoids the generic version of Prep -H is great for anal itching and rash.
