Itchy scrotum what is this ? Driving me insane

Posted , 3 users are following.

My scrotum has been itching for the last four weeks . First week I had a cyst on penis shaft which burst and white stuff came out. Just one pimple. I think it was a blocked hair follicle as I could see a black piece if hair . It grew and I pooped it . Blood came out with some white pus . Soon as it popped the next couple if days it began to heal . Second week my scrotum was itching specially at night . I have previously been diagnosed for nail fungal infection, jock itch around the creases of groin and athletes foot . Went to doctor he said it looks like a fungal infection . Asked to take antihistamines and apply OTC cream . Now I gone through a half a dozen brands including powders and itching us still there . There is no spots anyway , I don't have any other symtoms my where on body apart from this itching which is mostly in the night . It comes and goes . When I apply anti fungal powder the itching diss appears for a while but then comes back . Only the scrotum itch . I did shave my scrotum 7 weeks ago with razor to get all hairs out , so wondering if this has caused a lot of ingrown hairs to get stuck when the hair re grows . This itching is on the 5th week now ?is this a fungus or something to with the hair follicles stuck ? and if so does it take this long to get any better ? What is this please as I can't even identify anything as no spots or marks . My main question is is it jock itch or a five week dermatitis. Please help anyone .

    I think you may have identified a possible cause - shaving - and a treatment.  But rather than a powder try an anti-fungal cream.

    Clean underwear every day?

    Try otc Canesten HC, which is Clotrimazole cream with a cortisone cream in it.  It ought to help and apart from clean clothes every day, wear loose fitting underwear and trousers.  Perhaps when you are at home you could wear a bathrobe and no underwear - circulating air and all that!
