A burning feeling under my scrotum. What should I do?

A burning feeling under my scrotum. What should I do?

First clean and dry.: You should start by keeping the area clean and dry, using drying powders (talc) if necessary. Wear loose, clean underwear of hypoallergenic fiber. If the condition persists or becomes inflamed, get further evaluation by your primary care physician. A fungal infection such as tinea cruris (tinea cruris) may call for topical antifungals, or contact dermatitis may require Hydrocortisone cream.

Scrotal us revels no varicoceles& no pther abnormalities. After peeing my right spermatic vein swells and hurt. Burning and heavy feeling in scrotum?

Other possibilities: There are other things in your scrotum that can feel like a vein and which can burn, swell, hurt, and create a heavy feeling after urinating. I would recommend that you see a urologist if you haven't done so already, and if you have, follow up with them.

I applied strong burning cologne to my scrotum after shaving. 2 months later it is still red. Is this dangerous and what can I apply?

Local irritation: Sounds like a localized reaction. You can try a topical, mild over the counter steroid cream if the area is itchy and rd, but even a mild less potent steroid may be "burning" to the area. Best to get it evaluated by derm to assure the proper diagnosis is obtained. Good luck.

May be fungal infect: In order to solve this problem, you will need to see a doctor for an exam. It is possible that you may have a fungal infection that needs to be treated with antifungal medication to stop this cracking.

I have athletes foot and burning sensation under my scrotum?

I have athletes foot and burning sensation under my scrotum?

Tolnaftate: A tolnaftate cream is still probably best for most athlete's foot, a diagnosis a lay person can make easily. I'd apply it to the sensitive area on your bottom as well and see what happens. Keep these places dry especially after you exercise. If you don't get a good result in a week, physician's office visit is in order.

What causes a dry, chapped, itchy scrotum? What can I do to stop the itching and burning as well?

What causes a dry, chapped, itchy scrotum? What can I do to stop the itching and burning as well?

Jock itch: Sounds like you need an over the counter med for jock itch. I find the sprays work best. This is caused by a fungal infection of the skin. If this doesn't work, see your doc. Hope you feel better soon.

Burning sensation on the right scrotal area when touched and stretched. No wounds. Had and eczema on scrotum 2 days back. Could it be due to that? Scared

Burning sensation on the right scrotal area when touched and stretched. No wounds. Had and eczema on scrotum 2 days back. Could it be due to that? Scared

Relax: Eczema 2 days ago??? How do you know it was eczema? What did you do about it? I assume it was very itchy and that you used something on it. Also I assume you rubbed/ scratched it. Now it is sore because of treatment/ scratching/ both.

Sebaceous cysts...: What you nicely described most likely represent the common occurrence of hyperactive sebaceous glands and cysts, which at times may be infected like acne or abscess, and there is no cure but leave them alone or excise them at the time of no infection if becoming annoyed by recurrent infection.

Can a left l4-5 bulge/herniation cause burning sensation in scrotum on same side?

Can a left l4-5 bulge/herniation cause burning sensation in scrotum on same side?

Yes: All of the sensory nerves for the front of the abdomen, including the scrotum and thigh come from the back. Therefore, just problems may also present as pain in the front of the abdomen, scrotum, or the thigh. Make sure you don't have anyone hernia as the source. Physical exam by your doctor should be able to tell us.

I had a burning sensation after intercourse on my scrotum. It had never happened before. I do have a varecoele. Could that be or what can it be?

I had a burning sensation after intercourse on my scrotum. It had never happened before. I do have a varecoele. Could that be or what can it be?

Yes: A varecoele can impinge on small nerves in the scrotum and that can cause various neurologic symptoms such as pins and needles, numbness, etc. No worries if it causes no problems other than described, and if they are transient.

Put germx on penis and scrotum to clean wound and it is burning terribly. I've scrubbed it with soap and water but still burning. What to do? HELP!

Put germx on penis and scrotum to clean wound and it is burning terribly. I've scrubbed it with soap and water but still burning. What to do? HELP!

TLC: The scrotum has tender and sensitive skin. A chemical in the sanitizer does not like your scrotum. Cool bath with water no soap. Topical creme for the treatment of burns. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) 1% (sulfadiazine) creme if you can get it OTC. See your doctor if it does not improve in the next few hours. Go to the ER if the pain or redness is unbearable or extreme. Baby soap next time.

When masterbating it hurts my urethra and scrotum it's like a burning sensation. How to prevent this?

I'm not sure: What you're doing when your masturbating, but obviously you're doing something wrong. Maybe their a training video on youtube....... Be gentle with your penis, it's the only one you'll ever have. Masturbation is not a mma sport.

No problem: Probably a coincidence. This is not suggestive of any pathology or particular problem. You can wait and see if any of these symptoms persists
