Culture: Ask for a culture to rule out a bacterial intertrigo secondary to strep or another bacteria. See dermatologist or urologist. If indicated, they can try treating with ciclopirox 0.77% cream and a low potency topical steroid cream for now. Can start an oral antibiotic if culture is positive. Consider a skin biopsy to rule out paget's disease, bowen's disease or another condition if not improving. ...Read more

It is a mild topical anesthetic (benzocaine) and merely treats the symptoms. You will need a prescription from your doctor to treat the yeast, if present. ...Read more

I have a red, dry, itchy, scrotum and this problem seems to keep coming back. What could it be, and how can I treat the issue?

Scrotal irritation: This may simply be from friction or can be due to a yeast infection of the scrotal skin. Keep the area clean and dry, and apply a cream like lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) which has antiyeast action as well as corticosteroid to relieve itching and inflammation. Avoid tight jeans and wear white underwear. If no improvement, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a itchy scrotum, and it is red, oozing, and hurts when I walk, what can I do to stop the pain? I think it's from warm weather, andsweating. G

Here are some...: Without a direct look & more inquiry, it is hard to give right diagnosis & care, although clinically you may try: keep the area as clean, dry, ventilated as possible; avoid overusing soap; try gingerly applying antifungal cream with steroid like 0.5-1% hydrocortisone 1-2 times daily after the step 1; seek evaluation if not improving in 3-5 days or worsening despite the above.

Red Scrotum: Those agents are used for fungus in the groin area.

Itchiness along with burning sensation and skin feel irritated on scrotum. Just a little red or dark. Dr said jock itch. Been 2weeks using topical.

Please resubmit: This info with a question. Let us know also if the "jock itch" is improving or not. Jock itch (tinea curis) is caused by a group of "yeasts" (fungi) known as dermatophytes. Some have developed resistance to common anti-fungals. A change of medication may do the trick. An oral med might be needed if jock itch keeps coming back. Keeping the area dry & wearing boxers & roomy pants can help. ...Read more

Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Typical symptoms!: Contrary to what you seem to think (or what you have been told), increased discharge is not one of the main symptoms of yeast. Your own symptoms are exactly what I teach medical students to look for and patients to be aware of. See a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Or you can try an over the counter yeast medication -- then see the doc if symptoms don't clear up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

What are the chances that a red, itchy, burning scrotum skin is caused by roundworm? I was given ivermectin+albendazole tablets by doctor but no help.

Not worms: I was not present for the office visit but I agree with my colleague that this sounds totally inappropriate. Most often this is tinea cruris, best managed by a combination of topical over-the-counter antifungals, washing several times a day with a clean towel each time, and keeping things cool down their day and night. Best wishes. ...Read more

What are the Side effects of a yeast infection? I have burning, itchy, plus red & hot skin from where the hairs are. Not sexually active. & feverish

No fever...: A yeast infection can certainly cause burning, itching, red and hot skin. But it doesn't make you feverish. There may be some other reason you are feverish. I almost hate to mention it, but an initial herpes outbreak can give give you all the symptoms you mentioned including fever. It also has tiny skin ulcerations. Best wishes! ...Read more
