I have a bump on my scrotum. Bump is skin colored. 28 hours after possible exposure to std. Is this an ingrown hair or irritation from shaving?
ANy of above: The "bump" could be any of the things you mention, or other things as well. Without looking at the area and getting more history (like what STD may you have been exposed to - something like herpes that gives skin lesions...), then it is really impossible to diagnose. Keep area clean, dry, wear boxers to avoid undue irritation to area, and if not improving or becomes painful, see doc for treatment. ...Read more
Can you apply 0.5 hydrocotisone to head of penis/scrotum and between buttocks after burning and irritation from using an anti-fungal clotrimazole1%?
Yes: As a follow-up to your previous question and my response, topical steroids come in different strengths and potencies. 0.5% Hydrocortisone is considered a weakly potent topical steroid (class 7) and 0.5% a low strength and available otc. Should apply a thin layer to affected area (s) 2-3x/day. More potent steroids (classes 1-6) require prescriptions and more limited use. ...Read more

Shouldn't cause any: The Nizoral (ketoconazole) should not cause any problems in the scrotal area.

I have some bumps on my penile shaft and scrotum. They look like they have white heads and some of them are just. No pain or irritation?
Probably normal: The penis has sebaceous glands, glands that produce an oily lubricating substance that protects the delicate skin of penis. They are particularly noticeable when you stretch the skin of the penis. These pale, slightly lumpy bumps are a normal part of your anatomy. Don't try to remove them! If you still are concerned, check with your doctor to be sure you don't have genital warts. ...Read more

Red irritation on inner upper thigh close to scrotum smells really bad. I wear under armor boxer briefs for working out.
Sounds like a fungus: They can have a pretty strong odor. Dry warm air, like blow dryer, to the skin there for several minutes at least 2 times a day help prevent the small spores for germinating each day. Topical anti-fungal cream, like Lamisil, (terbinafine) applied after drying. This fungus likes warm moist places. Blow dry throughly and use fungal medication. Good luck. Let me know if doesn't clear. ...Read more

Dry skin or tinea.: We cannot make a specific diagnosis without an exam, however, what you describe can be caused by dry skin, allergic dermatitis, or tinea cruris. Start by using a hypoallergenic moisturizer and keeping the area dry between showers. If itchiness persists, try using antifungal cream for jock itch. If this fails, make an appointment for evaluation with a HealthTap doctor. ...Read more

Passing crystals in urine may cause pain in the testes. Drink enough water so that your urine is colorless and odorless. If the pain still persists, it would be prudent to see your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I had noticed that there are some dark brown bumps or dead skin on my scrotum and I have no idea what s that never had any sex before?
Could be normal: As we get older, we get more "spots" on our skin, including the scrotal area. Because normally skin here is 'wrinkled-up' and we usually don't check down there daily, seeing some darker spots can be worrisome. Stretch/flatten it out to see what it looks like. If u are certainly sure this is new, consult doc to have it checked. The picture here=normal scrotal skin with brown bumps. Good luck. ...Read more
