Here are some ...: Glad to know the left hemiscrotal itch just transient after shower. How long has it been? Recurring each time?

I have a lump on my testicle, it just appeared, it sometimes burns and a lot of the time it itches. There are also many little craters around it.

See answer: Though it is not possible from your description or without a physical exam to determine the diagnosis and nature of your "lump", any testicular mass or "lump" (especially between the ages of 15-49) should be evaluated by a physician to rule out the possibility of testicular cancer.

I have a horrible rash on my crotch, testicles and it is now in between my buttocks. It is red and blotchy, and burns and itches terribly.

Fungal infection: What you described suggests a fungal infection, like ringworm or jock itch. You may try over the counter medication for ringworm, like Lamisil. If that does not resolve the issue in a week or so, it would be prudent to see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
