Thanks for the query.

The most common condition leading to this type of itching of scrotum is Fungal infection. Its called tinea cruris. It usually affects the inner aspects of the scrotum and groin.

The preferred treatment for it will be an antifungal cream such as Cotrimazole. Please see a Dermatologist for complete examination and get treated accordingly.

At your age, its quite rare to have erection related problems. Most of the times, even after complete evaluation, no underlying cause is found.

Do not worry about the same. If you still have concern, you must consult a urologist.

Hope his answers your query. Please get back if you need any further information.

Thanks and Regards,

Dr Kiran.

Dont scrub as it can cause minor scratches which can delay healing and also worsen spread of fungus.

And regarding erection related problem, I would like to first reassure you.
You can consult an Urologist for this if your are concerned

Take Care
