I have red blotches on my scrotum
Hi,
I have red blotches on my scrotum, and I have no idea where they came from. I've read as much as possible online about it but everywhere I read they have different symptoms.
My symptoms are:
Red blotches that don't itch, and each time I shower it looks like dry skin coming away.
I exercise regularly and and I don't find my downstairs area uncomfortable. I am sexually active but my girlfriend and I are the only ones with whom we've been with so I don't think it could be a STD. I'm just worried about my testicles, I don't want them getting any worse then what they already are. I'm a little shy about making an appointment at the doctors but as a last resort I will have to go. I would also like to know if it's contagious? My girlfriend has white spots in her throat and she thinks it could be from this but we're not sure.
Please help ASAP!!

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without an external examination but there can be many possibilities for such kind of red, dry patches on scrotum. It could be eczema, a fungal infection, a dermatitis or psoriasis. These skin conditions usually present with scaling and itchiness. From your description, your rash is not suggestive of any HPV or HSV, or any other STD. You might be having mild eczema. In Psoriasis there are thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For accurate diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. Do keep us posted.
Take care and regards!
