Needs evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I would tell you need to see a doctor for this because it will be difficult to give you any diagnosis based on these symptoms but still we can discuss the possibilities .

It can be a superficial skin allergy or infection . Other possibility is that there is some infection in the scrotum itself which is leading to outside skin manifestation .
For this physical examination is required and may be USG scrotum will be required if swelling is also there . Kindly see your family doctor regarding this.

Take care.

Dear sir,

Thanks for reverting back.

Well Sir,

It can be a reaction to doxycycline also. I will advise you to contact your treating physician who prescribed this drug to you and till then hold it on . It is very likely to be reaction by doxyxcycline only but still we need to confirm on this.

Take care.
