Large lump starting at anus and goes all the way up to the start of scrotum. No itchiness or discharge. Painful?

Large lump starting at anus and goes all the way up to the start of scrotum. No itchiness or discharge. Painful?

It is painful?: If it is painful, it is very likely to be an abscess - a collection of pus under the skin. Start with soaking and ice, but if this gets bigger, more painful, red, or starts to weep, you will need to see a physician. If this is an abscess, it will need to be opened. Also could be thrombosed hemorrhoid. That will get better with time, soaking, and ice.

For the past month I have been experiencing a dull pain with Itchiness and Swelling in the area between my Scrotum and Anus. I am also bleeding.

Most likely fungal: This is most likely a fungal infection in this area. Try an over the counter antifungal cream like Lamisil (terbenafine) but if that does not get rid of it you will need to see a doctor.

Note, the rash is red flat dots, and some are dry white patches, itchy, around groin, itchy anus and itchy scrotum, doct says it was fungi, is true?

Can't tell: Without a direct observation, I would not second-guess your doctor. However if the problem persists and his treatment failed, then you need to consult a dermatologist.

I have a very itchy skin sore between the anus and the scrotum. It is almost like a sore swollen raised line between the 2. Had for months. Infection?

Unlikely: Infection, unless with a very benign slowly progressive pathogen would have declared itself and forced you to a doctor by now. But without seeing this and getting a full history, would just be guessing at possible diagnoses. See a doctor.

Eczema: Sometimes eczema acts similarly to 'jock itch' but doesn't respond to anti-fungals. You can try desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) (used for diaper rash) for relief until you can see a doctor, see if a steroid might be helpful, but should be used cautiously in that area.

Jock itch?: It's more likely you may have a case of fungi to the groin as this causes chronic itching to the genital areas while there are other know causes as well. Have a physician take a look.

How to stop itchy scrotum?

How to stop itchy scrotum?

Itching Scrotum: In most cases this itching is a jock itch or a fungal dermatitis. This kind of infection is common and usually can improve with over the counter anti-fungals. If there is any sores, redness, heat you may need to be seen by your physician. If this is just dry skin I often recommend a very strong moisturizing lotion such as lac-hydrin.

My skin is very dry and itchy under scrotum sack.

My skin is very dry and itchy under scrotum sack.

Itchy scrotal skin: Itchy scrotal skin can have a number of causes, such as eczema, contact dermatitis, candida infections. Even some benign growths on scrotal skin like angiokeratomas, tiny little purple papules, can cause itching. One must be careful with using cortisone cream in this area as the skin is thin and delicate, and cortisone can cause thinning in a short period of time.
