Itchiness in scrotum, scaly, dry skin, pus in hair follicles. Using vaseline, dove, no relief. Home remedies?

Hi. I am 35 year old male and I had this very itchy scrotum for years which I always tend to scratch to a point that it would end up being wounded. I can see that the itchy part of my scrotum is raised, scaly and very dry. Wounds are usually in the folds and it hurts a lot. It usually itches at night time and I unconsciously scratch it during my sleep. I tried to put castor oil or vaseline after shower to moisturize the skin but to no avail. I also use moisturizing soap like Dove. What type of cream or medicine will I take to have this disappear? Another thing, I am also suffering of bumps with puss on my hair follicles. It is all over my thighs, legs, pubic area and butt area. It does hurt a lot especially if it is being touched with my jeans at work. Hope you give me a remedy for this too. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for your query. It is very common to have fungal infection in the groin area including the scrotum which can be the cause of the itching. You are also complaining of "bumps with pus". I suggest you consult your doctor who may investigate you and prescribe the right medicines for relief from the problems that you are facing.

Wishing you early relief.
