Hi,
Contact dermatitis of the scrotum can cause redness, burning, swelling, and itching of the entire scrotum. This can result from soaps, solvents, detergents.

Contact dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin caused by direct contact with an irritating or allergy-causing substance (irritant or allergen).
The allergic type of contact dermatitis is caused by exposure to a material to which the person has become hypersensitive or allergic. The skin inflammation varies from mild irritation to redness and itching.

If you have recently switched brands of soap/detergents or any personal care products like creams/gels etc., then this could be the reason for the allergic reaction.
Treatment is with application of a 1% Hydrocortisone ointment and oral anti-histamines like Cetrizine for the rash.

Cold compress and anti-itch lotions like Pramoxine will provide symptomatic relief.
