Irritant dermatitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello. thank you.

I am Dr. kakkar (Dermatologist).
I have noted your concern.
You seem to have developed irritant dermatiti to Dettol.
I suggest you to apply a moderately potent topical steroid e.g mometasone furoate 0.1% cream, twice daily. It is a prescription steroid.
In addition you may also take a tab. cetrizine once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.

Brief Answer:
Irritant dermatitis to Savlon

Detailed Answer:
thank you.
I have viewed the image. The scrotal skin seems inflammed and it certainly is due to irritant dermatitis to savlon - savlon burn.
I suggest you to apply either fluticasone propionate 0.05%cream(Flutivate cream) Or Mometasone furoate 0.1%cream(Momate cream), twice daily for a week.
