In brief: Itchy Scrotum

Improving hygiene is one of the best ways to treat an itchy scrotum. Shower daily and use a mild soap to wash the genital area.
Sometimes the itchiness is caused by perfumes or dyes, so use white, fragrance-free soap. Wear looser underwear and pants to allow ample oxygen to the area. Use a mild lotion for dry skin. A mild prescription cortisone is also helpful suc as prescription Locoid (hydrocortisone butyrate) lotion.
