Rash: Possible allergy, although, without seeing a pic and getting more detailed story - it's no more than pure guess. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25 mg at night and see if it helps. Avoid drying brands of soap (usually bar soap) and hot water (making itching worse). If no better after the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or other symptoms are present or the rash getting worse, see doc.

Balls?: This description is fairly bizarre. I wish i could give you a better shot at diagnosis but with your description i cannot. I'm sorry i can't solve your problem here. You need to see a dermatologist.
