Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. There may be more than one issue and it requires and in-person evaluation.

I had sex with a girl two weeks ago (used condom). My scrotum itches. What are possible causes?

STDs eg crabs: This could be many things including STDs or a simple skin infection. Crabs is the first thing to come to mind but it could also be early herpes or other stds. You should get this looked at by a doctor so you can be treated immediately if it's an std.

My scrotum skin itches intensely and when scratched peels and cracks very easily all over. The flakes look like shedded snake skin. Is this an std?

Scrotal dermatitis: This doesn't sound like an std but perhaps a scrotal dermatitis. If you are applying something to this area I tis possible that you have developed a reaction to it.

I have fungal infection on my groun, and my scrotum itches, I've also had white bums on scrotum that itch, my scrotum tingles, could this be herpes?

Not herpes.: What you are describing doesn't sound like herpes. Herpes typically presents as a cluster of blisters that develop at the same time. The skin is typically itchy or painful before the blisters develop, then the blisters come. The fungal infection in your groin and scrotum may require a stronger antifungal. The Betamethasone combination you are using may spread the fungus and make it worse. ...Read more
