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. ...Read more

Tingling/paresthesia: A pinched nerve or nerve deprived of oxygen can result in a tingling, heat, or cold sensation. Competitive cyclists can have this happen to the pudendal nerve after prolonged cycling, causing scrotal/penile symptoms. Symptoms that can accompany this include inability to control the bowels and bladder. Recurrent tingling/cold feelings without clear reason would warrant getting seen in clinic. ...Read more

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.

Put germx on penis and scrotum to clean wound and it is burning terribly. Ive 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. Ive 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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
