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.

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. Due to differences in the scrotal skin compared to the adjacent thighs one doesn't see fungal infection there. Seeing a dermatologist should help clarify the answer and best recommend treatment. ...Read more

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
