I've been using lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra everynight for a month, why do my balls still itch?

In brief: Wrong diagnosis?

Fungal infections usually affect the groin, especialking he skini of the upper thighs, not the scrotum itself.
Itching of the scrotum is more often due to excessive attention: too much washing or too much itching. The answer may be to leave your balls alone for awhile.
