Hi I have very wrinkly scrotum and its very saggy and very hairy and I have many moles on it can I make moee pleasant looking like creams, etc?

Sounds okay, man: This is something that's seldom discussed as a beauty spot -- and who's looking? You're welcome to shave or have the hairs removed by laser or electrolysis if that's the preference of you and your life partner. If you have pigmented lesions that worry you, let your physician have a look. Mostly, you need a romantic partner or two to reassure you that things are fine -- I bet they will. ...Read more

Took a tick out of scrotum, accidentally left head inside. Wound closed but left a tiny hard red numb. What do I do?

Minor: If it is bothering you a dermatologist or a general surgeon or a urologist can take it out. They will numb the skin and it will have a couple of stitches which will dissolve. The numbing will burn just for a few seconds. After that it is painless. It is nothing serious. Good luck. ...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

Which STD's can I catch if I liked the shaft of another mans penis while keeping my hand over the head. Also licked the scrotum for less than a sec.

Doubtful: It is doubtful that you would get an STD from this type of exposure. However, if you have any type of sexual contact, STD's are possible. Use safer sex practices EVERY time- condoms properly applied. Make sure you are also using effective birth control if you don't want to be pregnant at this time.
It is better to be prepared! ...Read more

1 Dime size, no head pimple/blister between scrotum and anus. 2 weeks. Friction from tennis and sweat? Std!?

Sebaceous cyst?: An STD is a very unlikely cause of this sort of problem. More likely an inflamed (infected?) sebaceous cyst or something similar. See a doctor if it doesn't clear up in another week or so. Or sooner if it continues to enlarge, becomes sore, and ASAP if fever or spreading redness. (Your concern about STD suggests you may be at risk, so get tested to be safe. But not the cause of this problem.) ...Read more

I applied 0.5 hydrocortisone cream to my to the head of penis, pubic area and scrotum and now the head of penis and scrotum feels somewhat numb. Help?

Unusual: 0.5% Hydrocortisone is really too weak since even 1% is usually not potent enough. If the problem is persistent, you need to stop using it or perhaps try switching to an ointment. See a doctor if the problem fails to resolve or the numbness lasts more than a couple of day.
Make sure that the cream does not have a local anesthetic mixed with it. ...Read more

I have been advised to get this mole that's been growing, checked out. Assuming a complete biopsy/test procedure is performed at a good hospital. Cost?

Insurance?: Begin with an exam, preferably by a dermatologist. This exam may indicate a benign lesion needing no surgery. If a biopsy is indicated it is usually done in an office, not a hospital. Insurance will cover it. If you have no insurance and not much money, tell the Dr. The better Drs will give you a break. Entire cost might be $50 to $120 for Dr and $200 to $300 for lab. ...Read more
