?angioedema...: At age 11, the first that comes to my mind is spontaneous twisting of appendages inside scrotum.

The skin on my scrotum & shaft is red, itchy, and swollen.No bumps of any kind.The scrotal skin is also oozing fluid.Is this a fungus or bacteria?

Either one: Either fungal infectioni or certain bacterial infections can do this. "Oozing fluid" suggests a fairly severe infection, so it may not be safe to attempt over-the-counter treatment, and it's possible you would benefit from an oral antibiotic prescription.

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. ...Read more
