Red Scrotum

After a scare with STDs that turned out false, I noticed my scrotum to be redder than I remember. I have no pain, no itching, no symptoms in general other than a red scrotum and sometimes having it feel warm. I tried yeast a yeast cream and a fungus cream but no change. Is this something I should be concerned about or are some scrotums just more red than a normal skin color.

Hello,
These symptoms can be due to dermatitis skin. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime. Wash the area with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Then apply a good hypoallergenic moisturizer over the area and wear cotton clothes. If the symptoms still persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
