Itchy &Sweaty Balls

Hi

My scrotum has been very itchy and sweaty the past couple of months. It is itchy, hot & there is a smelly sweat around the area where my penis rest over the balls.

I tend to itch in the scrotum area and spread to other areas of the body mainly legs, back, thighs and buttocks.

When i scratch the related areas the skin has alot of enraised bumps that go away after a while. The scrotum has this issue too.

Please help as it became so itchy that i scratched till it stung when i showered. It can itch under any condition.

Hi and welcome. Its normal in these summer months to get jock itch. It seems youve added to the problem by scratching the area raw. Try using some antibactiral soap, loose fitting under wear and some topical 1% cortizone cream on the inflamed area, but not to much as is a skin thinner
