44 year old white male, Irish, have had 4 skin cancer operations, 2 basil, 2 sqamos. Have had rash on scrotum since 1996, had looked at multiple times that year even had a biopsy, all prescribed creams didn't work, cortisone,steroid, etc. Rash is only on scrotum,perfectly symetrical, has never spread and has never gone away. Red in color, alternately purple after excercise, very itchy when I sleep, sporadically itchy during daytime. I have resigned to live with it. Any suggestions?:confused:

  • what did the biopsy reveal? This is harsh on you; it would scare the ladies away....did you see a dermatologist?

  • Confusedwithskinproblem, I'm 25 year old male with seemingly your exact same problem for the last 9 months...how you have dealt with this since 96 I do not know. NO creams have worked, steroidal and non, even natural things like jojoba oil and pure aloe have little to zero effect. My derm said I have contact dermatitis, in my opinion the most cop-out bull**** response on the planet considering the range of that term could mean so many things, he also never pin pointed it. My rash is also symmetrical and after exercising will turn purplish. Have you had any luck since your post? all the best
