I'm going to try to be as thorough as I can. My scrotum has been red and itchy for what's going on five months. It also appears thicker than normal with more folds/creases. The perineum and intergluteal cleft (butt crack) have been itchy as well but show no signs of discoloration. The shaft of my penis is completely normal and does not itch at all. I occasionally (daily) get a strange tingly sensation almost as if something is crawling over my skin that spreads down my inner thighs almost to the tops of my knees. No sign of rash or discoloration on my thighs. Occasional intense pain that feels like its coming from inside my scrotum. I've seen seven people that include dermatologists/Urgent Care physicians who have prescribed a wide range of different treatments that include everything from tea tree oil to topicals to antibiotics. NOTHING seems to have worked. I've tested for STDs and everything has come back negative. I've used Cortisone/oxistat/diflucan/antifungal foot fungus spray/gold bond/zeasorb/colloidal silver/elidel/terrasil, literally EVERYTHING. I've also changed detergents and wear 100% cotton loose fitting boxers with an all natural antifungal soap. It's really taken a toll on my sleeping patterns and psyche in general... my girlfriend broke up with me because of it and i feel like I am at the end of my rope here....

Does anybody have any idea as to what is happening... please...

  • I developed the same symtoms, my husband, mother,now my 2 year old daughter' showing symptons.I live in tbe heart of the Smoky Mtns, right in and next to Great Smoky Mountains nation park. In such a beautiful tourtist town , in the park is a sewer, garbage disposal and waste department, yuck!!!!!! Oh and did i mention the little pigeon river that runs through the mountain and then through 3-6 towns, has bacteria and no fish can survive and they stock weekly??????odd thing is i live across, lest than 1000ft from them both. I have had for a month now and i have yellow pus filled legions, fungus seems to go hand and hand with this rash. Our muscles ache, and it is by far the most difficult to get to heal. Symtoms and areas affected on all of us are nose, butt, vagina, penis, bowel,face, entire body pretty much. Headaches, itching, crawling, stringy sores that constrict when trying to remove,they become black and are often u shaped like a *U* or circle though maybe it could be ringworm.

  • Yeah I'm not a doctor but I have been researching about the things in this area of the male body. I would consider changing your body soap and also bath more often. This could only bee dry skin . it occurs in that area. And also try some Baby oil; this may really help. Take care and I wish you the best.
