Pink splotches on the scrotum, increasing in size, no itching, cracking and dryness in winter. What could this be?

Hi, I ve a had pink splotches on my scrotum for years now that have slowly grown over time. During the winter these patches become quite dry and sometime even crack so I put lotion on them. They don t hurt or itch any other time. It s now mostly one big pick splotch on my scrotum, and also base of penis . It s not very visually appealing, and I would like to know why it is like that. Could someone please help me?

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have what is called as multiple Sebaceous Cysts over scrotum and base of the penis.

The scrotal skin is rich in sebaceous glands and hence prone to get more sebaceous cyst due to accumulation of sebum beneath the skin.
Normally they fade away without treatment however they need to be treated if increase in size or get infected.
Please consult qualified General Surgeon for clinical evaluation and further treatment.
If needed some of them which are bigger may need to get excised in Toto (Completely along with the sac) .
