I am writing about a very itchy and dry skin patch on my scrotum
The area is where the shaft of the penis meets the scrotum. It is definitely on the scotum skin.
The problem first started aprroximately 3 weeks ago. My wife and I use lubricated condoms for birth control. Approximately 3 weeks ago I noticed a collection of a white thick substance on the base of the condom after sex. At first I thought it was either a collection of the lubrication or perhaps some normal vaginal discharge. The next morninig I awoke with red and extremely itchy skin on my scrotum where the shaft ends. This is the spot where the substance had collected. Over the course of the next few days I realized the skin was red and somewhat flaky. We abstained for a few days and the cycle then repeated itself after the next time we had sex. When the problem continued to occur I purchased over the counter lotrimin thinking it might be a yeast/fungal infeaction. I only used the lotrimin for a few days and had some improvement, however, the area where it was applied the scotum skin became lighter in color and now looks rough and raised. When the itch subsided a little more I forgot about the problem and completely stopped the lotrimin (total use less than 3 days).
The last 2 times we had sex there was only a small amount of this substance, however, I awoke each morning with intense itching in the very same spot. The skin is rough and flaky when dry. The itch is a real bother.
The itch is now intense and does seem confined to the spot where the substance first appeared after sex. The itch also subsides if we abstain for a few days, however, that doesn't seem like a great long term solution. I need some advice on how to treat this very annoying condition. Perhaps a longer/more regular use of the lotrimin. Any suggestions on a diagnosis and treatment plan would be most appreciated
Thanks for taking the time to respond to my question and provide information in response
