I have severe itching of my scrotum and base of my penis?

Any rash?: Is there redness or rash with the itching? A yeast infection could be one of the problems if there is an associated rash. Otherwise heat and friction may be the cause. Cortisone type cream may relieve some of the symptoms. Try wearing loose fitting underwear and trousers in case heat and friction are the causes. If there is a rash try an antifungal cream before consulting a dermatologist.

See a dermatologist: You may have a type of neuropathy. An exam by a skin expert is essential. If "eczema cream" helps, be sure to review with the dermatologist. Sometimes we need to concede that no cure exists, then settle for the best control. You will need to be specific about all creams or other treatments

Hello I have dry pimples on my scrotum which itches frequently. Suggest the way to get rid of it.

Pimples: A dry itchy rash on the scrotum may be due to tinea cruris, a fungal infection of the skin which can occur and may respond to a topical over the counter anti-fungal cream such as clotrimazole 1%. Please see a doctor ASAP to confirm your diagnosis and perhaps be tested for other causes.

I have a tick bite on my scrotum. Its left a red bump and sometimes itches, is this serious?

Possibly: Ticks can carry numerous diseases, including rocky mountain spotted fever, lyme disease, borrelia infections, and others. If you develop other symptoms see a doctor asap. If this rash begins to spread outward or resembles a target, go and get treated for lyme disease. Good luck.

I had a red itchy spot at the base of my penis and touching my scrotum visible for a month. It still itches and feels like it's there after 6 months.

Itchy spot: Could be allergy, irritation but without looking at it, it's a poke in the air. Either send a pic or see a local doc.
