Hi I am 19 years old and I can't find the courage to see anyone because my testicles have become dry and flaky which is making them itchy.... Please help Thanks?
I agree. The testicles are the contents of the skin sack. The skin sack is what is dry and flaky. It probably is a fungal infection unless you have flaky patches elsewhere on your body. A lotion just MIGHT make this worse if it is a fungus, so better to go to a pharmacy and look for a treatment for "jock itch" which will have a bit of medication in it. Lots of brands, it's rather a common problem.
Testicles are FINE. If it's of any consolation your testicles moist and quite NOT FLAKY...and I will almost guarantee you that. It's the skin on the scrotum that may be dry and flaky. You could just have some dry skin that use moisturizing cream or you could have a bit of a fungal infection. Best way to tell the difference is to see a doctor who I also guarantee SEES LOTS OF THIS PROBLEM. No reason for shyness. GL.
