In brief: Ok

Voltaren (diclofenac) gel is okay for all skin, including the scrotum. It does burn if the skin is irritated, however.

In brief: Yes.

The amount of systemic absorption of voltaren (diclofenac) gel is very low even if put next to an area of thin skin like the scrotum. Make sure that you follow the directions of the voltaren (diclofenac) gel.

In brief: Not a good idea!

Best used for bony joints and tendons! Too much tissue there!
