burning sensation

i'm 30 years old.  thanks to this board, wikipedia, and google image search, i have come to a 99%-certain self-diagnosis that i've got some kind of angiokeratoma on my scrotum.  whatever, no problem there.

HOWEVER.  this morning i woke up with an intense burning sensation on just the FRONT portion of my scrotum... well, it doesn't burn without stimulus. i wouldn't even notice it, but the slightest touch feels like sandpaper across an open wound. also, that front portion has turned red in color, all of the veins are much much MUCH more prominent, and the number of papules that i "normally" have has almost TRIPLED... including one that is at least twice the size of any other that i've ever noticed.  the skin itself feels almost leathery, instead of soft.

i haven't changed the soap or laundry detergent that i use.  so what the heck gives?

i know that i should see a doctor, but i'm kinda poor.
