User :   Hi
User :   Dr here
User :   How may i help you?
User :   Hello- I have a problem around my groin area. It is my skin. I did not know how get rid of my problem for some time. I am 29 I started seeing a problem around 27 years of age and some months. I itch a bit to some times horribly, horribly because the minor itch leads to a bigger one. I have tried anti fungals and found one that worked great but the problem came back a week later. My skin gets dry and cracked sometimes. At first it was small now it looks like the spot that originally was itchy and dry is bigger and now instead of one side of my scrotum it is on bothish. It seems like its spreading so I am worried. Only recently has it become unbarable, at first I would go months with out seeing any signs of anything on my scrotum, healthy looking skin. An itch would come every now and then but would just go away quick. I use gold bond powder before I work out most of the time, but I have not been really active lately. What might I have, normally the itch just goes away really quick and comes back 1 to maybe 2 -3 times a year for a night? I thought my skin was just reacting to moisture or rather sweat. My skin has been dry and itchy for some time now and won't go away. This has never happened to me before. Did one problem create another that I can not personally diagnose.
