May be fungal/yeast: infection on the skin of the scrotum. The groin area is a common place that fungal infections occur. The fungus tends to grow well on areas that are warm and moist, and often itch worse when the area become more warm and moist (eg. when working out and/or sweating). Try using an OTC treatment for jock itch, if not helpful, may need prescription. Consider in-box consult on HealthTap for Rx. ...Read more

Two things...: Two things come to mind to me when i read your description of your symptoms. 1) a (typical) reaction to the Aldara (imiquimod) cream, if it is getting on surrounding skin. 2) a coincidental fungal injection (aka "jock itch"). Wouldn't hurt to try an otc antifungal cream. But you might need to see your doctor to get this clarified for sure. ...Read more

See answer : A yeast (candida) or fungal infection is likely the most common cause of a reddened, itchy scrotum which should respond to keeping it clean, dry and an antifungal cream. A contact dermatitis which is an irritation from an allergen is also common and may be from: changes in clothing material, soap, fabric softener, or any chemical. Responds best to steroid cream. Scabies infection also can cause. ...Read more

Nothing serious: At your age an itchy rash in that area is either a 'contact' rash of irritation or a fungal rash. Usually relatively easy to differentiate on exam, but if all else is normal for you health-wise try Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream followed by Hydrocortisone twice daily for a few days. If rash persists or spreads after 4-5 days contact your doctor. ...Read more
